Rent-A-Thug #73 – Rules For Criminal Success #5

This is one of only two strips so far with a single-digit number (the other being Rules For Criminal Success #8). I like this one better than its cousin, partly because I very much enjoy drawing both Squidgy and Powerhouse, so having them both together is even more fun. At some point I’m going to have to do something that shows the rough scale of Squidgy and Powerhouse (and a few of the other super-types, come to think of it) compared to the regular characters. My general rule of thumb is that the regular characters (basically any of the thugs, who are built more or less the same) should come up to about Squidgy’s bellybutton, while Squidgy should come up to roughly Powerhouse’s chin (which, given Powerhouse’s weird build still makes him substantially bigger than Squidgy).

Also, if you haven’t been reading The Holiday Men… well why the hell aren’t you reading The Holiday Men? It’s by Nick Johnson and Andrew Foley and it’s ten pounds of tremendous in a five pound bag. And that doesn’t even make sense.

I’ll be back on Friday, and you should be too. Thanks for reading!
