The 8-bit Richter Sprite was something I found on Anapan's website (one of the two men behind the one-time-project, Castlevania Online, which woulda been huge). I took it, and made a ton of sprite frames out of it, mostly based on CV1's Simon. It was just color hacking and minimal editing. Nothing major.

Of note, the sprite in this one frame is different from the rest of the comics. At Jorge's suggestion, I changed the black to a dark brown so it'd show up against black backgrounds.
 
    

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.
