Firstly, I have to point out that this is where I first switched to the new layout for the comic. It was an attempt to avoid the six panel syndrome I kept falling into, plus now it looks more like a comic book page, which I like.
The joke in the top left panel is a play on the fact that I never used to get hits. People visiting the site was a rare occurance. Of course, now that I've made it into some link databases, I appear much earlier on internet searches for Castlevania, so the site isn't doing as poorly as it once was.
As for Katrina, this was actually her story from the forum threads. We never really did flesh it out online before this, so when it came time to give each of the characters a past, I just took what I knew and went with it.
 
    

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.
