Cartoonist’s Commentary:


I could have made the Nihilanth as a Leisure-Suit-Larry-inspired “male” character with a sleazy one-track mind. But the Nihilanth is supposed to be the ruler of Xen whereas Leisure Suit Larry had no power and barely any influence, so I figured the other direction made more sense. Well, as much sense as a cross-dressing, extra-dimensional alien with a gigantic head COULD make. Besides, we already have “Larry” the Headcrab, who you can count on seeing again in future strips. 😳
