I like their hats : ]
I actually googled George Ripton to see if he really existed. XD The first search brought up what seems like porn on youtube (didn't click), then I added "the ripper" and it brought up your page on comicsgenesis...
Which reminds me - do you post on other sites like DA and such? I clicked on "links" but found only other people's comics - and was really chuffed to see Cop Story there, thanks a ton! :D
Also for some reason in my head Tony is voiced by Tim Roth - it's probably because of the outfit combined with long face, light hair and goofy expression. "Problem? I haven't got a problem. I've got f*cking problems. Plural."
@Oly-RRR: LOL, was not aware of the porn connection. Originally he was supposed to be "The Gory Ripper" but I figured that was a little too Wrestlemania, not quite 1910s-20s boxer names, you know?
I have a DA, but I haven't put anything on it in years- for some reason I just never really got into the habit. I'm sitting on a tumblr URL but again, never get around to posting on it. The comicgenesis site is one I'm gonna need to wipe off the internet pretty soon, if I can get around to it. And you're quite welcome! I really enjoy Cop Story a lot, it's unique and refreshingly down-to-earth, if that makes any sense.
Ohhhhh my goodness I can totally hear him as that. It's funny, the characters have certain "singing voices" to me- like I imagine Joseph to sound like Freddie Mercury, Eddie's more Jim Morrison... for some reason I associate Tony with Dr. John?? I think I like your interpretation better though, lmao.
@mitchellbravo: Aw, makes sense! I'm more of a DA addict myself but I'm starting to use smackjeeves more regularly and it has a lot of upsides as a network specifically for comics! Though I wish there was some system for separate images because seeing people using accounts for just art is sort of weird - and at the same time sometimes I wish there was some place here to upload art related to my comics without messing with codes too much.
And ooh, singing voices, that's interesting! I watch a lot of shows and listen to a few radio shows so I tend to imagine characters speaking in actors' voices just because it's easier to imagine that than how a singing voice would sound as speech.
And gosh, thanks a ton! :D That's sort of exactly what I'm trying to do - stories that don't often get told and at the same time fit in everyday life.
@Oly-RRR: Well I'm glad you came to smackjeeves so that I could find your comic! :P Yeah, there's a few things I wish were different here as well but as far as webcomic hosts go I think it does a great job of getting the job done.
@mitchellbravo: Yeah, definitely! Running a site is a lot of work and something tells me that in general webcomics get less traffic than art + photos on DA and tumblr so I can understand why some things feel a little basic compared to bigger art sites.
