My name is Alex.
I like neon green, retro sci-fi art, surrealism, old games, kitsch, birds, history, and oddball things in general.
One of my all-time favorite styles of comedy is deliberately mispronouncing words while using a silly voice.
Basically just a big ol' soft-hearted dork.

Remember when I said that I wouldn't be updating this week? Well, that's only partially true. I made a new cover! I HATED the old one, so I went n' redid it. I'll probably be deleting this post later because I already replaced the original cover page with this one, but I was too excited not to share.

I also designed a new logo, too! I'll probably update the comic header with a big banner once I make one, but until then, enjoy a much nicer version of my logo.

My boyfriend, Kyle Wilson, helped me make this cover! He scanned all my individual pieces separately, including the original logo and cover art, and pieced them together into what you see here. He doesn't create any of the content for this comic, but he DOES scan all my original pages and edits them to look true to my original art. He is much better at Photoshop than I am. Go look his surreal pencil drawings of alien creatures, I cannot stress this enough!
@Oly-RRR: Those are all really good questions! Oooo I'm gonna have fun answering all these, especially since it's with Gideon.

Hey, the sky is doing things! Isn't that interesting??? Hot/cold/rainy enough for ya?? Ha ha ha!
@Oly-RRR: Oh yeah, it's definitely paying off! I was honestly stunned when I saw this page, keep it up!! :3

Welcome to Cop Land, where we DEFINITELY don't shove people into closets and perform shady """"""pre-interviews."""""&q uot; Enjoy our cheese trays! Don't look in that box, by the way. There's nothing in it, so DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
@Oly-RRR: BUY OUR CRAP, IT'S A TRAP *beatboxing*

Pfff, Lord knows that I've been guilty of shopping this way, too. QUICK, ROBIN! TO THE CANDY AISLE!

Those are all really good questions! I have a lot of fun stuff to think about now. Unfortunately, I can't answer any of the Gideon questions because pretty much anything directly related to his personal/home life or his past will spoil the story. If you have anything to ask him that's less personal, I'd love to hear it! :D
No, Kane. This is not Narnia.

Oh, wow, I'm really impressed by how you did the lighting! It has such a sickly green look that's really unsettling. I like how there's a random patio table in there. It even has a hole for the umbrella! Hahaha, there's all those plastic chairs stacked up behind Nutter and Kane doesn't even get to use one. He's stuck with what looks like an upside-down milk crate.

I'm dying to know what's in Nutter's cardboard box.

In this moment, we are all Rhodes. It's okay, Dempsey. I can't control myself around sour gummies, either.

And this marks the end of this little bonus comic!

HEAR YE, HEAR YE! It'll be a little bit before we get back to the main story, but in the meantime, I'm accepting questions for a Q&A Special! Ask some comic-related questions in the comment section and I'll answer them in comic form (unless I can't answer it due to spoilers)!
@Oly-RRR: Oh yeah, I understand that completely. I mainly want to do a few smaller things for right now because I'm going to be opening up commissions soon and I need to do something more manageable while I get all that figured out. Plus, these little stories help people learn about my characters, methinks. Not that I'm going to stop with the chapter, of course!
@Oly-RRR: Or optionally, you could just do it whenever and just tell everyone it's Opposite Day. >:3
@Oly-RRR: Thank you! I always like it when characters make up in fiction. ♡ We have one more page left in this minicomic and then I'll probably be back with another minicomic. I need to build up more of a backlog with the main one before I start posting more.
Happy May Day! These boys can't stay mad at each other. If they get in a tiff, they immediately feel bad and try to make up for it. That's part of the reason why they've been together so long.

Sorry about the lack of an update last week! I had some important family business to take care of, but now we're back on track.
@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
@Oly-RRR: Oh God, the back to school sales. Also known as the time of agitated parents and screaming children. That poor girl, just let her have her Spider-Man backpack! :< It's always bothered me when I see parents publicly yelling at their kids for stupid reasons. Like more screaming is going to stop all the screaming. GOL DANGIT BILLY, PUT THAT PUPPY NOTEBOOK DOWN, YOU ARE GONNA GIT THIS CAMO PRINT NOTEBOOK LIKE A REAL MAN AND YOU ARE GONNA LIKE IT
(seriously this real men do this/real women do that crap grates on my nerves like nothing else, oh my god)

Stay tuned next week to see more chronicles of the perpetually agitated redhead and the naive nerd boy! What weird things will they do next? Same bat-time, same bat-channel!
@Oly-RRR: Oh yeah, supermarket fights are embarrassing to see. One time, I was at the Dollar General by my apartment and there was a guy there shouting about how everything was too expensive and they should have gone to Wal-Mart. His wife kept shushing him. It was so uncomfortable. But yeah, Rhodes could be much more understanding. To be fair, he's been waiting on him for quite awhile, but still. He gets agitated too easily.
Oh my God, I found you on here completely by chance! That corridor you drew is gorgeous!
Dempsey is pretty anal-retentive about his toilet paper. Rhodes has known him for pretty much his whole life, but he still doesn't understand his weird behavior with money.
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.
@Oly-RRR: Dempsey is a sweet guy, but he's got some problems with impulse control. And thanks!! :3 The generic white layout that came with the site didn't fit the comic all that well.
@Oly-RRR: Yup, you hit the nail on the head. Dempsey was raised by a single mother in a loving environment, but they didn't have much money. She also kind of spoiled him, which is why he acts like a little kid sometimes. His habit of scraping together cash and cheaping out on things will probably follow him around for the rest of his life. Rhodes can find his behavior confusing because his family never had money problems when he was a kid.

And thank you! :3 I wanted to do something I could put together quickly while I'm working on more detailed updates.
When you marry someone, you also marry their weird hangups. Dempsey's odd habit is being pathologically unable to buy anything other than the cheapest, most generic stuff possible to "save money."

Here be the bonus comics!! I haven't done anything in monochrome India ink for a long time, so this is a fun exercise.
@Icnos: Thank you so much!! It can be pretty discouraging to continue when my audience is kinda puny, but I'd keep making this story even if nobody read it at all. Thanks for your encouragement!
