1. E3 (obviously) and the ridiculous amount of ladies hired to stand around and look pretty to advertise video games they know nothing about. I understand the whole “sex sells” mentality, but it’s becoming far too overdone in this industry as many of you witnessed/read about.
2. Steve mentioned in a tweet (which I somehow missed completely) that the whole “Booth Babe” thing should be equal opportunity for both genders and coined the term “Booth Beef”… I didn’t even see the tweet until after the comic idea took form, but I have to hand it to him, he called it.
3. Our friend, Curtis (better known to his fans as Takahata101) also mentioned in a tweet that he wanted to be the pioneer of male Booth Babes, and came up with the term “Booth Bro” which set the wheels in my brain turning until I wrote out an outline for this comic.
I’ll also mention, I didn’t ask anyone for permission before I drew them into this comic… rather, I informed them that this was happening, so my apologies to the guest stars. Featured here we have Teal Sherer as the hostess of the first booth with male babes, and a beefy line-up of Chris Avellone (Obsidian Entertainment), Curtis (Takahata101), Marc Watson (@Marc_IRL on twitter, customer service rep for Mojang) and of course Steve (my awesome brother and founder of Dracogen investments).
