Arthur, King of Time and Space


Forum posters have noticed that the twelve ambassadors' faces are my likenesses of the actors to have played Doctor Who (when you include Rowan Atkinson and Richard E. Grant, as I do, you get twelve), suitably aged and shorn to be Roman ambassadors. As when I gave the False Guenevere's henchmen the faces of the Three Stooges (and as I may have disclaimed then and forgotten since), this is just because (after I changed my mind about doing the ambassadors in shapes, as described earlier) I thought to myself, "I need a certain number of faces - what set of this number of faces do I know of?" There's no deeper meaning to it than that. It doesn't mean I think the Doctor is some sort of time-traveling Roman philosophically, or that I admire the Stooges' work as much as I do Doctor Who. It just means I'm disinclined to invent characters when I can find a way around it, and am not necessarily good at it when I don't avoid it (Have you noticed Roynes looks just like Gorlois? I didn't, till weeks later.). That's why even my mainstream webcomic is fanfiction of a public domain property. But you knew that. The point is, I needed twelve faces. If I had been more familiar with The Last Supper than I am with Doctor Who ...

P.S. The Roman envoy in the space arc is the Romulan commander from The Enterprise Incident.
