whotookcheesuschrist said: Preston is in some ways even sadder than mister Freeze. The guy just wanted people to stop picking on him, and the result was insanity and being forced to murder to stay alive.
I agree, and that’s partly what draws me to the character - I personally find him more interesting than the Hagen Clayface, in part because of the tragic element to him that Hagen doesn’t have, judging from the comics I’ve read.
He’ll be a very interesting character to write about once I’ve read more comics involving him.
After reading Strange Apparitions in full, I’m interested in reading more of the Preston Payne Clayface. I always found the concept of him interesting and frightening, but I really liked his first appearance and feel that he needs more love.
I’d like to write fanfic for him, but I need to read more of Preston’s history to feel confident writing him.
