"You do what you have to do to protect the people around you. To do what you know is right, regardless of the cost. You know, I never really understood that. You’re the guy that makes all the hard decisions, even if you have to make them alone."
My submission for the antihero zine Reprobates & Renegades! This is Wesley Wyndam-Pryce (feat. Illyria) from Angel. His entire character arc—from incompetent Watcher on Buffy the Vampire Slayer to hypercompetent GQMF on Angel—is something very near and dear to my heart; my teen years saw Wesley mature into someone formidable and profound, and he’ll always be one of my favorite characters to grace the television screen. I tried to include a lot of character-relevant symbols and events—the Orlon Window, his wounds, the fireball, Illyria, the hands of Wolfram & Hart (and arguably Hell), &c. Check out the link if you’re interested in buying the zine—there’s a ton of fantastic talent in there!
