The bartender is a cameo of a Kickstarter backer’s OC! He’s originally a demon, but we don’t have those in this universe, so he just gets to be a guy with a weird birthmark. And a deal on garlic fries.
…on that note, Volume 2 Kickstarter tier spotlight! This is the “if I don’t make the artist draw me INTO the comic, I’m not using Kickstarter to its full potential” tier:
Kaleo: Excuse me, bartender! Can I get a lift down to the big bar?
Bartender: Sure. Anything else I can get you?
Kaleo: How much for a garlic fry?
Bartender: For you? Free.
Kaleo: Aw, you’re sweet.
Bartender: . . . It’s policy to serve all Tamaputians for free. It’s on the waiver at the door.
