Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #144 – The Minstrel, Crimson Matroyshaka,
Luscious Trapp, Spiderous-Man & Mr. Mystic On… It Was Suppose To Be About 2016
When I started this comic I intended for each comic to feature 1 person. Then during the second week the “Deadpool” movie came out and I decided that my version of him “Death Poll” would pop in on each comic. I thought it was gonna be for that week only. Then during the big “Flash/Supergirl” TV crossover I did a special comic with their counterparts “Special-Girl and Quickie”. Almost immediately 3 characters were regularly featured. In the last few months 4 characters started showing up. I literally didn’t think anymore could fit into one comic… This week has 5 characters in every comic. Crazy how things change…
It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do this week. Was it gonna be yet another “2016 was the worst year ever thing”, or something saying it wasn’t the worst year ever, or something saying it was but it was our fault… On Christmas night I was gonna try to stay up and write these but I was tired to instead took a nap. I woke back up around 2 and pretty soon an idea struck me… We deserved an alternate ending…Strangely enough the that idea came from the song by Horseshoe Gang (they are this DOPE ass group of 4 dudes and I think 2 of them are Crooked I’s little brothers. Crooked I is the west coast dude in Slaughterhouse) called “Alternate Ending” where they took “Brenda’s” Got A Baby” and gave it happier ending. I just felt like that part in “The Dark Knight” “people deserve to have their faith rewarded”.
Tomorrow Lou, Spiderous-Man, & Mr. Mystic are joined by Freedom Female and Pussy Whip discuss who might’ve have started that rumor about The Minstrel. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
