Jeff ‘n’ Jared

Now, we all know that real bad guys don’t repeatedly say each other’s names in conversation:  “What do you think, JEFF?”  I don’t know, JARED.” Especially in PUBLIC.  But then these are two new characters, unshaven, one with a PONY TAIL, for crying out loud!! Large Schooners of Beer, overflowing with suds, scheming of the first order… Do we need any more visual clues that these guys are BAD??

Sorry, but Jared’s hand is all catawampus in the middle frame.  It’s like it’s just floating out there in space, emerging from the talk-balloon…  And in Panel three, we see that his right hand is all mangled, like he got it caught in the license plate stamping machine or something…

No doubt Bad-Guy Jeff has the story that was written about the Indian artifact collection going up for sale…  And apparently it’s front page news in whatever backwater we find ourselves trolling for opportunity…
