Double Cross

by SlimmerCat
Toulin is a rough city, full of backstabbing politicians, careless police, and violent criminals. The majority of the city's organized crime is focused on the southern district. This is where Duane Hitchenson lives.
Growing up in the slums, illegal activity easily becomes a way of life. Duane has two jobs: During the day, he has a day job as a police detective, working around the clock to put away muggers, murderers, and money-launderers.
His second job is as an enforcer/debt collector/second-in-command to the city's biggest mob boss, Marco Morabito, head of a group of criminals collectively referred to as The Syndicate.
Jimmy Jones, on the other hand, leads the equally dangerous (but slightly less profitable) gang known as the Black 13s. Jimmy Jones, naturally, wants Marco out of business.

Tl;dr: Buddy cops with secrets! Mobsters fight each other! Updates Saturdays.

@SlimmerCat: You'll get there! Best of luck.

And I don't really follow tumblr in general (for my own sake) and only been to your personal tumblr a couple of times but I wanted to let you know that some of your posts re: mental health stuff were relatable to me. So you know, good luck on that front too, we could all use more of it.

@SlimmerCat: Ah, makes sense, thanks for clarifying! It's hard to tell with Duane, I started wondering about it after his dialogue with Carter but I also wouldn't put it past Duane to not tell Carter much about his family.

@Oly-RRR: I'm about to start my second semester of my junior year, so I've got a year and a half to go. By spring 2k16 I will be free!

@Oly-RRR: I'm not sure if it was entirely clear, but Roxanne isn't literally Duane's sibling-- it's just a pet name. (He does have a sister, but she's much older than him, and a lot better at keeping her shit together.)

I like larger pages! You might want to make the white section of the layout wider too or change it in some way so the right side isn't sticking out but really it's nitpicking, I'd rather have larger detailed pages and wonky layout than the other way.

And woo, I caught up! So you won't get spammed by my multiple comments any more. But I'll be back for the next page! :D Keep up the good work!

Pff, as long as know an artist is going to update eventually I'm prepared to wait, you're sharing this for free after all! :] It's just that in many cases "temporarily hiatus" is wishful thinking but I'm really glad that it's not your case! How long do you have till graduating? Sometimes it gets easier after that, depending on your job and other circumstances of course.

Something tells me that briefcase is the same one the detectives talked about...

SCHOOL IS EVIL. 8I My work does cause hiatuses sometimes but I still don't miss my uni.

The last panel is brilliant!

Carter is so adorably worried.

Interesting, for me traditional inking is much faster than digital even though it does take some fiddling when I want coloured lines somewhere. Just shows you that there are many people and many ways. X)

When Duane appeared I thought Roger was the middle kid but I started to suspect he was the sister's boyfriend like a page ago. I have to admit, he does look like trouble but at least Duane is handling it maturely...

I notice it's hardest to finish pages after a break, especially if you're like me and trying not to get sucked into the loop of re-drawing the same intro for months because it actually happened before. You obviously know how it works best for you but in my case I usually make pages and update one page at a time so if I can't get back to the comic in a while I don't have a bunch of half-finished pages I have to finish. But yeah, comics can be rough...

...but not as rough as Duane's family, I want to know more about them all!

She looks so sad, I'm guessing we're about to find out the reasons for that...

The only way to get through the day! The colours are great on this page (the last panel is probably my favourite), I hope I'm not too repetitive saying that.

Duane clearly thinks he can find a way to push her around. And I'm going to miss that jacket and sweater but I also think Duane is going to look hilarious with a tie.
