An Unusual Suspect
The creative process is a funny thing. Believe it or not, the primary idea for this strip was not influenced by the terrific film The Usual Suspects. Instead, it was inspired by a tiny throw-away moment in the 1986 movie Running Scared. If you’ve never seen Running Scared I recommend finding and watching it. It’s not a deep movie, but it is funny and has some decent action. I think the film could probably hold its own in 2010, if you’re around my age, and heavily medicated.
