Original comicscript 

A  throwback type of comic story that feels more like a Bruce Willis-style action romp.

Carl Dixon is on the verge of comedy superstardom and he got there the dirty way: by stealing jokes. He’s got a killer act, an ugly past, and more enemies than punch-lines. So when someone asks Syd Homes how much it would cost to have Dixon killed, Syd isn’t surprised in the slightest. He’s already got a figure in mind…

Other information:
· The series was originally envisioned as a four-panel comic strip for Hill’s newsletter, Escape Hatch.

As noted by Hill on May 28, 2019 in Escape Hatch:

“Funny story about this. I started writing a four panel strip for Escape Hatch about nine months ago. Only it all got away from me, and in fits and starts has become a new comic book. I’ve got about three and a half scripts now on a six issue initial run. I thiiiiiink it might be good? You’ll be hearing more about it soon.”
