Hurray! A pipe reference :D Believe it or not, my paying job is as a professional tobacco pipe carver. Between the 70's inking and the Universal Horror film, you have a reader for life. :D
Also, I totally love Lucy's face in the last panel.

"Continuous", she said. Nigel states he is "over 350 years old." Has he been in residence the whole time?

How can this angry mob actually call themselves an angry mob? What does an angry mobs care about legal jargon? Aren't they usually busy destroying, burning, and killing things? Personally, I think they might need to go to angry mob school, or at the very least "goggle" the definition of angry mob.

Oh where to start, KFP, note the smile on the sheriff's face and I too have enjoyed carving pipes long ago. However, I gave up the habit (both carving and smoking). Chris, lawyers get a bad rep; however, as many of them as I have worked with some of that reputation is deserved, yet many do great service to their communities. It is just that perhaps more than any other profession their actions can have a considerable impact on society. Cat yes she did say continuous and she will elaborate in the next update. (in fact I am really looking forward to drawing that page) Unka John, once again thanks and always a pleasure to have you along. (thumbs up)

Nice rebuff, Lucy! Perry Mason couldn't have done any better. ;)

And yes... the '70s style inking is half the fun of this comic.

Doug it may be that past Mobs perhaps did not fare too well with Nigel by being angry. I think I am addressing that history in future updates. (quickly checks notes) Yes, I do briefly address that issue.

Thanks vwyler, and I will confess it is not intentional. It is just the way I draw and ink. Most likely this is the result of the fact my critical artistic developmental years were formed in the '70s and therefore, carries a strong influence. Right now I am trying to find the old Duo Tone bristol paper that used to be popular with political cartoonist as well as some comic artist such as Howard Chaykin, Wally Wood, and Mark Schultz. I have been considering going back to using that type of paper stock and pulling out the old Windsor Newton Series 7 brushes and the Hunt crow quill pens to ink the comic instead of using the Copic and Micron markers. The down side would be that it would take longer to finish a page but the increase in quality might be worth it.

All fine and dandy, but Nigel hasn't paid the rent so out he goes!

Actually, I was just kidding around about the angry mob. I would never expect for the mob to go blood-crazy, because it would not make much since to have such graphic violence in this comic.

Ah, but under Adverse Possession he owns the land. Now property taxes is an entire different issue. But maybe the town has not figured that one out yet. :)

Oh I understood the humor Doug do not get me wrong. However it does appear the town does not seem to know how to appreciate their local color. :)

As to graphic violence, no this is not that kind of comic. However, there are some future plot points that will be tense and some characters will resort to violent action as part of the context of the story. But no this is never going to be a comic with arterial blood and guts spraying the panels.

Maybe this is how the Thornhaven citizenry appreciates it's local color!

Implied violence is much more effective anyway.

Agreed cat on both points. :)

One of these days I need to pay you to do a brief guest appearance shot of Nigel for KFP. I think he would freak the guys out completely. :D

Oh I am so in. But you do not need to pay me. :)
