Who is Who?
The ink hero was created when an experiment by comic book artist Mort Gort failed (he wanted to create four-dimensional ink). After having been captured in an inkpot for 50 years, he was set free by Daisy Screensaver. Unlike other comic book heroes, he's not deliberately fighting evil, but rather slips into his adventures by chance.
When the young woman starts a job as an inker at Kaput Comics, she finds an old inkpot in the office. When she opens it, Splash Brannigan is stepping out. From now on, he's her companion (maybe more than that?). She's the prototype of the comic industry's employee without any rights, working like a slave and always struggling to meet her deadlines.
