Rent-A-Thug #183 – King of the Streets part 13

The first three panels were all completely erased three or four times each. I’d originally wanted the first panel to establish that they’re in some kind of kitchen while Johnny Mushface slammed into the cabinets, but it looked weird and the impact looked really weak, so I divided it into two panels. The third panel was originally going to be a shot from the boot coming down on Mushface from his point of view, but again it looked weird. The last two panels worked without issue, which is good because otherwise the page might have disintegrated due to all of the erasing.

I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler to say that this is how Johnny Mushface ends up with his mushy face. I thought quite a bit about how exactly Johnny Mushface got his mug messed up, and came up with a bunch of different ways that it could happen. Acid was involved in a few of the scenarios I came up with until I re-read Batman: The Long Halloween, which involves Harvey Dent being scarred by acid and becoming Two-Face. When the COPS were added to the story it was pretty easy to come up with a scenario that would result in part of Johnny’s face being burned.

Thanks for reading, see you Friday!
