From what I've heard this comic is as bad as Jack with a slightly better art style. I'm getting hints of wallowing angstiness from the main characters. Or they feel that they're better than everyone else….when they friggin MURDER PEOPLE, come on! Urg.
And the victims give you their long boring tale of how their lives fell to such unredeeming lows that they request 2 random HIGH SCHOOL GOTH KIDS to snuff em out. Yes they run a suicide business. Must be apprentices of the Kervorkian.
The story/plot : 2 random guys start a business where they help people commit suicide. Yeah but not like Kevorkian or anything. Apparently these guys go about it the nasty way. So…I'm reading a bit right now and yeah just like Jack it gets hard to follow. But at least the art is better. Take note that after their very first suicide neither character is at all disturbed about how they inadvertently kill someone. But their maximum worry is getting caught by the police. So apparently both of these characters are sociopaths with superiority complexes . And what's worse, they decide to make a business of this. The stupid fennec looking one wants money for porn. The MouseZebrah one is more cautious and maybe a bit guilty but so freaking what? He STILL kills people! But worse are probably the morons who go to them for their special killing treatment.
And you know…I'm Pro-Life. And I saw this http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20050119.html
Just so…twisted. And blindingly out of character for these two who have up to now shown NO compassion for any living thing since the first damn page! This causes me to believe that this page is a temporary soap box platform for the creator's own personal beliefs. Ignoring the already bizarre characterization he had already given them. They just assault the poor pig girl with bubblez and bubblez of text as if they had a speech prepared for just such an occasion. Not for one second does it bother either of them that they are murderers themselves. After this they go back to killing stupid bastards willing to pay for it. Judging by the bits of political banter I read the writer is a conservative(or just loves to mock conservatism). Scary cuz so am I but I don't think like this. http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20090328.html
http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20050323.html So the Fennec one is pure evil apparently. Granted this is the first instance I've seen. I'm sure it is repeated throughout the comic. Basically, at the very BRINK , if the retard who signed up for this flashy suicide act chickens out, the goth kid will force it to happen there by committing an actual murder. And…not even bat an eye.
http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20050406.html Arg if this dude says 'pussy' one more time I'LL KILL HIM!
Arcturus Winrock, what an odd name, most definitely has a mental illness. Good. He'll need to tell the judge this if/when they get caught. http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20050508.html
Also arm wrestling is the perfect way to battle those pesky inner demons. http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20050525.html
At this point even the main characters are finding it weird that they haven't been caught. But Hunter Ravenwood whisks it off as an act of God. Seriously? I mean its atrocious how investigators have found NO evidence of foul play. These two freaks can't be that clever.
Heh. I hate to admit this but I used to read Jack. I don't know at what point I dropped off or why but I did. Guess I got bored with it. And as of now I am speeding through this comic with actual interest. Because I want to see something bad happen to both these characters. I'm hoping an eventual foil character will pop up. Some kind of opposition. An undercover cop? A love interest? Anything! But right now Ravenwood is totally inhuman and Winrock has polite friendly conversations with his demon self and arm wrestles with them. Oy.
As of now I'm skipping around. Because for a long time the story structure is just a cycle of "Duo get asked by moron for assisted suicide > moron tells their lengthy pathetic story of how their lives are ruined, usually by their own dumb hands and wish no longer to live > Duo then make elaborate plans to kill said moron > At the very cusp of following through with their suicide the person backs out or gets scared >The duo, mainly Ravenwood, finishes the job against their wishes thus committing murder." So yeah I'm trying to see if there is any story beyond this. And trying to figure out why the hell the police utterly fails at finding any evidence to convict these two loons.
http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20090420.html The further in I read the more evil Ravenwood gets and Winrock is still a push over if not more so. Note here that they actually gode this woman into killing her violently abusive boyfriend but when she looses her nerve the boyfriend retaliates and beats the shit out of her. The duo are aware of this but Ravenwood wants to do NOTHING to help her. After this happens and the squirrel woman has been beaten senseless. The only helpful thing he does is give her a shot gun to off herself with. How long is it going to be before this guy just shoots you as soon as you step into his office? And Winrock the pussy that he is never tries hard enough to stop any of this. He just whines in the corner about how the thought of killing person a,b,or c messes with his conscience but he never has the balls to STOP Ravenwood. Geeze. For now I'm just waiting for these characters to crack. Or get busted. Which ever comes first I welcome it. I'm tired of reading pages and pages and pages of back story for these poor "victims". Only for the end to be exactly the same every freaking time. Surprise me or something! Give me a survivor! Have one of the victims be a person either Winrock or Ravenwood genuinely care for! Winrock's complaints hold as much weight as a plastic bag blowing in the wind. Any conflict or friction is almost non exsistant with there being no threat of law and barely a hint of any emotional distress. Every death they simply shrug off as if human (or should I say furry) life means NOTHING to them.
I can say at least, that the art does improve and unlike Concession or whatever its called. You can tell these animal characters apart.
Also this actually made me laugh. I have NO clue as of why. http://suicideforhire.comicgenesis.com/d/20081104.html Possibly because the last election was my first time ever voting. It was nice.
