If I’m not mistaken, Sophie’s interest in the ghosts of mobsters passed was mentioned in her introductory bits. You’ll see she wastes no time in getting to her point with the guys she thinks can help her.
But will they be willing and able to do just that?
While I’ve never had an audience while setting up for a panel or anything (no, my previous attempts to lead a panel didn’t have an audience before, during OR after to worry about, lol), I know how disconcerting it is to be “on stage” before you’re fully prepared, which is what I figure Tom is getting creeped out by.
The names of our 3 new characters were plucked entirely from my own head. If you happened to be named Beckett Harding, Tom Sildingham, or Frank Pisgith, I mean you no disrespect (and I’m sorry y’all got saddled with some mouthful names, there).
Coming up with an acronym for the guys was a fun exercise. And, wow, the jokes kinda write themselves, only I don’t know if I’ll have the chance to use them in the strip or not, so I’ll wait to share them. The NOPE guys (at least some of them) will be regulars for this chapter. After that, we;ll just have to see, won’t we.
