We wanted a story that was more light-hearted compared to the more noir-inspired stories we had previously done. It will also allow us to present a lighter side of the agency rather than rely on the more heavy-handed approach of them prosecuting competition law offenders.
Our approach, the romance story with two lovebirds trying to figure our merger regulations so that they can bring their stores together. After much discussion with CCS, the story was written and everything else fell into place.
A couple of months later, the story was finally completed and the comic released!
