Rent-A-Thug #33 – Rules For Criminal Success #26

This strip, along with Thursday and Friday’s updates, are some of my favourite early Rent-A-Thug strips. It was around this time that I started to hit on the personalities of a lot of the characters and find out what kind of material worked best with them.

This strip also might remind some of you of Dignity Not Required. That’s because that page was based on this strip, except that I replaced the Bald Evil Guy (yes, that’s actually the supervillain’s name) with Astronut, who seemed much more likely to make his goons wear space suits. I liked the joke in this strip and altered it to see how the vertical pages worked for single-page jokes. Turns out the answer to that was “okay, but stories are more fun”.

Thanks for reading, see you tomorrow. Well, not “see”, so much, but… whatever, just come back tomorrow for another page.
