You think your job is rough...!

Drinking hardly solves a problem (except if your problem is being not drunk), you can only forget about it for while.

Well, considering the map... I can't help with that. We know that this is going on for at least 2 months and that the murderer has no problems sneaking into the city at day light. But without dates, one could not tell if the murderer is following a certain path...

I'm kind of a squeamish person, and I complained to a friend after I drew the first death about just how uncomfortable it made me. Yesterday, as I finished up my twelfth mutilation pic, I was wishing I'd written a story of about puppies and rainbows instead!

Yes, but just think. You'd have condemned your perp to live a boring life with no thrills, to die of starvation, the citizens of the city deprived of the possibility of being the next meal, the Police Lieutenant to be unemployed living on food stamps and welfare, and your readers absolutely bored out of their skulls. Look at all the good you've done

Wh-what? That sounds like you think there is no crime except it involves murder or other ways of killing. If you mean that, I strongly beg to differ!

Thank you!
There are a few comics I don't read because they're too bloody/brutal for me. And as a reader, I only see the finished page, I never thought about how much more intense it must be for an artist who must take care of every detail of the gory parts.

I loved the shading and intricate map details, as well as the sense of utter exhaustion on the detective’s face.

The shading was me realizing just how much of a noir story this is! I really nailed Perez's expression, I can't imagine just how rough a job like this would be. It is definitely taking its toll on her, as you can see.
