Must be left over merchandise from Vinyl's last tour.
Would you believe it, but exactly one year ago today Octavia's parents had their not so grand first appearance. It still amuses me slightly that I'd initially they were never meant to be recurring characters, and were only meant to have been used on that initial comic, never to be seen again. What a tragedy that would have been!
I decided to return to the whole idea of Octamum's birthday here (July 6th seems to be the date now!) I was originally going to do a plot-line revolving around Octadad painting a portrait of his wife, only for Vinyl to practically destroy it (In the style of 'BEAN: The Ultimate Disaster Movie'!) but I just couldn't get a comic script together that worked.
