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.

@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)!
Ghost Copper looks like he desperately wants to say something and isn't able to :( :( :(
Question and feel free not to answer if you'd rather we all figure it out on our own- Is Chance the only one who can see him and he's ignoring him?? G.C. just looks so damn worried, like he knows something bad is in store for these guys and has no way of communicating it...
*looks into getting an AAC device for the ghost copper*

Super excited for the next page/next few pages, the jolly banter just feels like its precipitating something either very grim or absolutely hilarious.
haha, this crew is an absolute mess. i love it.
It comes with the job and as they say, the job is fooked.

I have a KoFi now! If you like the comic, leave a tip maybe? :) You can do it here or click the button at the bottom of the web page.
@mitchellbravo: Oh you <3 WAIT, DOES IT MEAN YOU GOT THAT COVETED BOX WITH CHEESES AND CHOCOLATES (also why does that sound like an innuendo)?

The big booby lady (a.ka. the bike babe) is standing in for the antigravity boobs lady which might reappear depending on how things go! And yeah, it's good to get back to the station - I still don't quite know what I'm doing but I knew it EVEN LESS when I drew it back in 2013?

I think the mess really helps with places feeling "lived in", I dunno what I'd with tidy characters who do keep their living places pristine like an Ikea catalogue. XD

MERRY CRISIS, WISHING MORE UPDATES IN THE NEW YEAR FOR US BOTH :D
MY ONLY NON-EDIBLE CHRISTMAS GIFT THIS YEAR <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

(I missed this before I sent you my PM earlier XD)

Aaah I love getting to see LIFE IN THE STATION and just some chill hanging out interactions of the guys AND NEVER THINK I MISSED THE BIG BOOBY LADY ON THE MOTORCYCLE

I'm just really impressed by your talent and making places feel authentic and "lived in" with tons of nuance that looks effortless but I know it's not...


MARY CHIRSTANS AND HAPPY NEAR AND THANKS FOR UPDATING
The last update of the year to maximize your festivity! And if you're not into festivity it's okay, you can still enjoy the ...er, nipple talk? This is about as festive as this story is going to get for a while so it works.

The mutated coat rack was created by eishiya who makes comics about investigators with much more decorum, go read it!

@mitchellbravo: Thank you! I guess it could be because I'm still drawing a lot between updates, just not this thing... I think I came to terms with pages varying a bit though so that's good, gives me more room for trying new things.

Well, gotta pick the dorkiest photos for the contacts list! (Mum and I both have photos of each other wearing noise cancelling headphones...)

And yeah, you're spot-on. I want their home to be cosy because they are a mostly happy and functional family (especially compared to my other characters) but there's still a lot of unspoken worry there.

@Squirreltastic-Blue: Thanks! I hope so too, life just gets in the way sometimes.
I love how you can go so long between updates and the quality doesn't dip even in the slightest.

And Parks' photo with the christmas cracker crown is choice XP

The atmosphere of their house is very warm and soothing but the way you framed the wide shot panel also gives it kind of a claustrophobic feel, like they're keeping themselves walled in from everyone else... like kind of toeing the line between "cozy" and "our fortress where we're safe." (which is of course penetrated by the pan now on fire lol) Or at least that's the feel I'm getting from it!!!
Welcome back!
I hope you're here to stay!

The phone is muted, the smoke alarm has a dead battery, the only sound is Leicester (and now i can use his name) lying to his son. On the upside Houston is unlikely to remember much of it so he can continue thinking it's Going To Be Okay if your parent tells you so until his 30s. And it's not a bad state of mind to be in, if you ask me.

Life got real in a hardcore way for a while there but I guess I'm back!

@mitchellbravo: Thank you! :D Oh man, we both have MOODY FEELING SHADOWS in our recent pages! High-five!!

OMG, a Parks plushie would be so round and soft. And come with a set of uniform clothes and... a Hawaiian print shirt, shorts and sandals WITH SOCKS. 8I

I still love traditional but I think I'll be safer doing standalone shorts traditionally for now, I don't have enough markers for all those brick walls. D: That and I'd like to get more in touch with digital now that I don't do it for work so all is well that ends well and all that. X)
YAEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I love the use of the MOODY FEELING SHADOWS and the quick glance exchange with Chance. Also Parks looks adorable in panel 3, 10/10 would buy a plushie of.

Best of luck with continuing digitally!!!!! It's all about finding what's most efficient and you're so good at making everything look textured and weighty that it has that handmade look of a traditional comic WITHOUT THE SLOPPY SHITENESS OF A REAL SAD PIECE OF PAPER


THIS UPDATE MADE ME SO HAPPY OMGGGGGG

Really any page I post can be titled that but still.

Nutter and Chance have that sort of names that are hard to introduce properly through casual speech so I'll just go and explain it here. Nutter is an actual surname (as in Detective Inspector Scott Nutter). Chance is a nickname (as in Detective Sergeant Ed Chauncey, Chance for friends).

And that's exactly the sort of friendship they have. While we're at it, here's another example of their interactions, set some time before the events of this chapter. Yeppp.

Other stuff I should probably mention:
CID - the Crime Investigation Department, they investigate all the crimes nobody else wants to investigate
guv = guv'nor - like "boss" but more affectionate

Who is Leicester what is Leicester where is Leicester why is he not in the CID. Maybe we'll find out soon.

Oh oh and if you click back you'll notice that all pages are digital and I'm not tweaking anything any more. I'll try to keep it that way and hopefully update more often.
@mitchellbravo: You know my guys too well! But yeaaah, Nutter is good at finding where to poke so it hurts, and he's so used to doing it to get a result fast he doesn't really register it as hurting someone.

Haha, I wouldn't want to unnerve you (or anyone!) and I'm considering some sort of content warnings in the future but I also can't help thinking "WOULDN'T THAT BE A COOL PANEL THO" right now.
