And that ends this issue. What did you think of it? Please let me know in the comments down below.

This story was inspired by two sources: Swamp Thing and the Hulk. It kind of bugged me that these supposedly inhuman monsters (well, being treated as such, escpecially in the Hulk's case) were so... human-looking. I wanted to create a being that didn't look like anything from this world. The art in the issue doesn't properly show how it's supposed to move: bipedal, though the legs are actually attached to the rest of the body above the arms. The mouth on its head was also something important to me, with sharp teeth, to keep that "not natural" look to it.

But in the end I wanted the story of a gentle creature, one hounded by people that don't understand. Pseudomorph is on the run from the moment it became real. And how did it become real? One kid (or multiple, each with weak power, but combined to make it strong) has the ability to manifest imagination into reality, a power they don't know they have. I didn't want to go in depth in this issue, but I feel it more or less is implied here by the story-telling father mentioning that he never told the story in front of the kids. It's likely that after this, they'll watch what they tell their kids and monitor such kids quite closely.

Where will the Pseudomorph appear next? I have no immediate plans, but it's a definite part of my superhero universe.
