The comic was going to be set in France, which this and "Combine's Arrival" were test shots for.
France was chosen at random, I wanted to avoid using America as then you'd get the cliche'd "America saves the day" stuff, and I avoided Britain as most of stories/comics/whatever are set there. I considered a Far Eastern nation, but that'd require more research, plus I've lived in France so I already knew a bit about it. That and I seem to love destroying Paris in everything I do.
It's at zero, where it's going to stay I'm afraid. I no longer do gmod comics, just the occasional screenshot, I already had pages and pages of story and research into what would/could happen, but it would have taken at least 4 years to make it all as it was going to be a twenty year long story. And I'm now doing at least four other projects.
Kickass! This could definately be part of the 7-hour war, I can see it now... The third hour of the war, the military forces all over the world begin to truly fight back and do some damage to the combine.
