So I guess this was one of my first attempts at drawing a really big comic? It didn’t work out so well, but I’ve kept it in because it provides an interesting contrast with this much more recent comic. As you can see, I might not have ever adopted the juggalo strain of this behaviour, but I am familiar with the basic mindset at work here, so I can offer you this much: walking away from it is a very nice feeling indeed.

And in case you’re wondering, other recent comics like this one are also dealing with a similar mindset – but this time, I’m writing the character that way on purpose, rather than just doing it because the idea of false threat displays appeals to me on a level that I’ve never bothered to contemplate before.
