Ok, so I’m not going to lie, I just worked an 11 hour work day here and the creative juices are a little empty. But that wouldn’t stop Rust Cohle and it won’t stop me.
It’s no secret (as 3 of us chose it among our favorite television shows of 2014) that most of love True Detective. When I say “most of us” I mean all of us except Sophie. I was reading up on the new series and I decided that I needed to incorporate a True Detective run into the strip. It was time. While mulling about what sort thing might land us in jail this time I once again found myself incorporating Scott’s actual son. I don’t know why the concept of being terrible at babysitting is so funny to me. I think it’s also fair to point out that Scott is actually letting me babysit the little guy tomorrow. Like, I’ve written about how terrible I would be at taking care of his kid multiple times now and still, he is asking me to do.
I don’t know what else to do to make sure he gets the point. Maybe get the little guy entered into the Thunderdome or something?
But that’s Mad Max, and this is True Detective. Jon was the obvious choice for McConnaughey’s Rust Cohle, they both cling to terrible pony tails and have antisocial tendencies. I also love the recurring theme that are characters are so detached from reality that they literally play make-believe in even the most serious situations. Who even knows what’s real in this comic?
I’m really proud of the next 3 strips guys. 2015 is gonna be a great year for this strip. You’ll see. Or we’ll cancel it. One or the other.
