Cop Story

by Oly-RRR
This is a crime drama about cops. Or a slice-of-life story about disabled people. Or- hey, why don't you make up your own mind about it? And of course you do not have to say anything but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in court.

See my other comic here for short comics related to the main plot (you know you want to).

Might contain traces of nuts and mature language/content.

Updated sporadically, whenever I'm able.

@Oly-RRR: I have a feeling that only one of them is going to be coming out of this particular closet. Behave yourself, Nutter! We wouldn't want Cop Story to turn into a skeezy BL crackfic all of a sudden. :P
@Lutztoons: Coming out of the closet is generally a good thing, but going in is almost never fun. :P

SO MANY INNUENDOS
Kane loves the police force so much that he can't keep it to himself. He was about to carve a big heart on the door that said KANE ♡ LIECESTER before Nutter wandered by and caught him.
And YAAAAAAY new pages! Now we'll get to see what delightful things will happen in that closet. They're pfffffrobablyyyy not going to play Seven Minutes in Heaven.
@Lutztoons: Nutter is very understanding about the underclasses being romantically interested in the police, which is clearly what the message on the door humbly tries to communicate- well, no, not remotely... but Nutter has his priorities.

And any dark room a large guy pushes you into is generally not a good sign. D:

New pages. Totally in progress!
@mitchellbravo: THAAANKS 8)

I was kinda worried funny posters would distract from the action or affect the whole mood on the page... You can tell I've been questioning my old comic decisions a lot lol. I guess I'll have to work in the "classics" on some other pages then!

And gosh, I'm glad this comic gives you something positive - for me it's both the thing that keeps me going and the thing that brings me down, depending on the day. COMICS, MANNNNN
Now you've got him all upset!
First of all, this Kane guy seems like a joy. And he's leaving a nice message for the police force! How thoughtful of him! I like how he gets caught scraping FUCK COPS on the door and nobody is saying anything about it. Nutter is more angry at him for not staying put by the vending machines.

I'm loving how you drew his hand in the first panel. The red spotting and small scars are great details. Also I just noticed that Nutter is jabbing him in the butt with his foot.

There's something that feels really menacing about that bottom panel. The low angle, and the harsh fluorescent lighting all make it feel really foreboding and disorienting. And I just realized that the dark maroon light in that STORAG room is really creepy. What delightful things will happen in there???
:D :D :D :D :D :D

I LOVE THE DYNAMICS OF THE CHARACTERS INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER/WITH THE ENVIRONMENT

& this page also features another of my favorite parts of the art which is THE POSTERS (though these seem pretty tactful and sincere [i have to tell you about my new class because i keep wanting to make a version of "HELP US HELP YOU HELP YOURSELVES TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM ______" to address some of their myriad issues])

Kane's perfetly weaselly and sneaky looking here as well, especially in the third panel

UGHHHHHH OLY I'VE HAD SUCH A DAY TODAY I WAS CLOSE TO BREAKING LENT EARLY BUT YOU'VE GIVEN ME PUSH TO KEEP GOING
This is roughly where the old version of the chapter got to by page 3. NO REGRETS! Well, lots of regrets but at least not about this.

The comic also got a bunch of new readers since the last update! Hello, new readers! Old readers who remember the old chapter, please don't spoil the story for them if possible (or put a spoiler warning in the comment)? :) Either way, be nice to each other, this March sucks.
@Lutztoons: This chapter is set in Edmonton North London (amusingly it's this Edmonton the Canadian Edmonton is named after)! But I don't feel confident enough to make accents readable (you do it well but it's easy to overdo it). Besides not all characters are from there anyway (Nutter is originally from Manchester, he sounds really Northern in my head even though he's been down South for a while).

And I definitely promise more chair graffiti cameos later on. :D
@Oly-RRR: You're welcome! I not only find this story interesting from a visual and story standpoint, but from a linguistic and cultural one, as well. I'm from the States, so this is completely different from the type of cop stories I see all the time and I'm really enjoying it. What part of the UK does this take place in?

Looks like Rufus is winning the office war--any chair that has ARSE painted on it in giant letters is going to be the best one in the room. Unless there's one nearby that has a funnier naughty thing painted on it, in which case never mind.

I know, right?? I love doing little details like that because they make the space look that much more real. And that's also the thing that drew me to your work--lots of detail and lively characters who sometimes make unfortunate choices. Flawed characters rendered in massive detail! Go us! :D
@Lutztoons: Thank you! It's good to know they sound real for you - sometimes I also imagine their voices in my head, sometimes I just keep tweaking lines and get lost in it. :P

And yeah, this story is partly about what this line of work does to generally well-meaning people, though it's also a story about what people do to people in a broader sense, cops or not.

Rufus doesn't hesitate sitting in the ARSE chair both because he genuinely doesn't care and as a part of an ongoing office war to claim better chairs as personal.

I try (and sometimes fail) to not go overboard with details but they are so fun to draw! I think it's something our art has in common - details and expressive characters (with questionable decisions).
I really enjoy the way you do dialogue. I can just hear all the characters' voices in my head when I read it! The chemistry between everyone in the crew is very believable. I'd imagine that it'd be necessary to develop a gallows sense of humor if you were a cop, considering all the frightening things you'd have to grapple with on the regular.

There's a lot of tension building up on this page. I am wondering what happened to that ghostly cop, what he's doing there, and why he's covered in blood. Looks like he knows something that nobody else does, but he can't say anything about it.

Also, I'm laughing at the "arse" painted on the back of Rufus' (?) chair. Little details like that make me happy! There's so much stuff going on on these pages that I keep noticing new things every time I look at them.
@Human: Thank you!
this looks promising
@Oly-RRR: Thanks, mate. Consider it subscribed.

@fergusmaximus: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoy the comic so far! :D

I gotta figure out how to add the RSS link to the layout somewhere but for now here it is - http://copstory.smackjeeves.com/rss/
This is great
Hey Oly-RRR,

I found you by clicking an ad on a whim (wish I could remember where I saw it; that could conceivably have been helpful feedback). I really like the world you've created here and I look forward to seeing where the story goes. I particularly enjoyed the interaction between Houston and his dad -- I don't think I've ever encountered a character with CP in a comic before and I love that's he seems to be portrayed as simply human. Thank you.

Do you have an RSS feed? I can't see a link anywhere. I read far too many comics and it's the only way I can keep up.

Thanks again,
Ferg
@mitchellbravo: That's one of the downsides of being a ghost. And not really a spoiler, none of these dudes are aware of Ghost Copper. But yeah, being a ghost is kind of like being a minority in some ways (and vies versa)...

Aaah, thanks! I'm also excited about the next pages (and just the story moving forward, really, and it's January so I can be optimistic about that lol). I'll be doing the next few pages as a batch again so not sure when the next update will be but this method seems to be working so far! :D
@spiremint: That they aaaare (and thank you)!
