Welcome to the LMC comic! The idea for it was essentially to start something new, but keep the spirit of Sonic Wrecks. “Sonic Wrecks with the shackles off” was how Kevin initially described it.
Also to be a project specifically for Kevin and DoubleXXCross to do together. Aww.
Originally this wasn’t going to be the first LMC comic, as what is now the second was already done. However, owing to the Internet’s rather…er… excited reaction to the reveal of Lady Dimitrescu from CAPCOM’s Resident Evil 8 Village.
Kevin and DoubleXXCross actually came up with the same idea at the same time – so it was decided to push and get this comic out instead.
So yes, you get a Steven Universe X Resident Evil crossover here. That’s quite the unusual start.
‘A tall drink of water’ (sometimes ‘a tall glass of water’) is an old expression meaning the person is highly attractive, tall and long legged. Whilst not expressly a reference to this scene it was used by the ‘drunken cherub’ character Shorty to describe Mother Gothel in the Disney film Tangled.
The comic’s title uses the font from the Steven Universe episode title cards.
The song “Giant Woman” appears in Season 1, Episode 12 of Steven Universe – also called Giant Woman.
Steven sweats pink liquid, let’s just say it’s a nice nod to avoid any spoilers in here.
For those not familiar with our other long running comic Sonic Wrecks, there’s a tradition whereby Kevin writes an overly long disclaimer regarding it and stuffs it full of references and nonsenses. The tradition continues here.
He may have overdone it on the song references though in this one.
Line 1 is a reference to the song “Change” from Steven Universe: The Movie. (“You can make a difference. You can make it right. You can make it better. We don’t have to fight.”)
“Complete. Global. Saturation.” is part of a notorious line from series villain Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5.
“Balance is the key” comes from the Steven Universe song “Do It For Her”, featured in Sworn to the Sword (Season 2, Episode 6)
In a nod to Sonic Wrecks the disclaimer mistakenly starts its excuses for using Sonic characters.
Technically this is also the second comic produced in a row that features Steven Universe lyrics in the disclaimer, as a “Cookie Cat” reference appears in Sonic Wrecks #115.
“Bold, precise, experimental.” is from the song “It’s Over, Isn’t It?”. (SU Season 3, Episode 8 – Mr. Greg) – at one point the whole disclaimer was going to be a parody of this one song.
