A few things to note here. First of all, this is the first comic to feature a different logo. I went through a spell mimicing each of the Castlevania logos (at least, most of them anyway), before settling on a stylized CotM logo that I currently (at the time of this writing) use.
This comic predates Death having a speech glow. I dunno if I would have used it for Gary at the top, but it still predates. Speaking of Gary, this is one of the first instances of the top having a random side gag. That went on for a while as well, although now I usually do something at least halfway plot related.
Darkmoon and Katrina fight a lot. I realize it now, reading back over the comics.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
