The characters of Stan and Masky have quite a varied and developmental history in my work and here’s the main origin sketch from years back. Stan goes back even farther and in the new Paranoid Tales of Neurosis Anthology you’ll see the “character” in the form of a leather clad zombie killer that was the original incarnation. Not of Stan, but of this particular look. Masky has his origins back in college and in the Paranoid Tales Comix Anthology #1, you’ll see him losing his wife to a porn star in a strip called “The Casual Zone”. He portrays a nervous, vomiting character that cannot find peace.
