Rent-A-Thug #118 – Great Thugs in History part 17

I have no idea why or how a donkey is involved in the new plan to get Robert Hoodwink out of jail, but I liked the idea of Charles trying to figure out what the hell was going on while having the reader free to construct their own theories on the situation. It’s sort of the same idea that went into showing the Sheriff torturing Hoodwink but only getting to see the Sheriff and leaving the specfics of what he’s doing for the reader to come up with on their own.

I’ve spent the better part of yesterday and today playing Grand Theft Auto IV. It’s pretty addictive and a lot of fun but I’m still not convinced that it’s a 10 out of 10 game, mostly because the combat controls still don’t seem as tight as they should be, though, especially the cover system. They’re substantially better than the previous GTA games, but not as good as similar games like Crackdown and Saints Row. Despite that it’s still an awesome game, and I haven’t even taken it online yet.

I’ve got a gig helping out Jay Bardyla of Happy Harbor Comics do a presentation on comics as a medium tomorrow morning at a local junior high school. What exactly I’m supposed to be doing is actually kind of vague, but I figure it’ll be something along the lines of “art monkey”. It should be a fun time (and I’m sure it’ll beat math class or whatever the kids are getting out of).

Thanks for reading, see you Friday.
