Rent-A-Thug #127 – Rules For Criminal Success #92

Charlie No-Aim hadn’t gotten his lead pipe action on in quite a while until last Friday’s strip. Apparently he’s got a taste for blood because he’s back at it again. There’s a small promo for The Holiday Men in the background of the second panel, although it didn’t totally survive the re-sizing process. If you can’t read it, it says “Nick Klaus” and “Have you seen me?” above the O’Mega Mart symbol.

I’ve come up with a couple of features for the site that I think might be interesting. One is a New Reader’s Guide, which I figure is a decent idea since I’m approaching 150 comics and don’t really fall into the gag-a-day or extended story models that most webcomics use. It’ll also highlight a few of the features of the site, including the page bookmark and the comments section, that I’d like to see get some more use (okay, to be fair I actually have no way to track whether or not the bookmark gets used or not, but it’s not totally obvious). The second is the Thugcyclopedia, a glossary of terms, characters, places, important events, and whatever else I can think of. It’ll allow me to fill in a lot of small details that I think are interesting but would be awkward to try to shoehorn into a story.

Relatedly, I wouldn’t mind if the comments box that is attached to each page saw some more use. I’d love to hear what you guys think about the comic, and I do read and respond to comments when they’re left.

Thanks for reading, see you Friday!
