It's actually a very well known idiom, Westcott. A lot of people are familiar with it.

By the way, I accidentally skipped Body in the Foyer #27 earlier, but it is now there, in between #28 and #26. Go look at it and enjoy the double update!

Westcott has only hugged two things: his father, on the day of his death, and a low-yield M69 fragmentation grenade, to protect a senator from an assassination attempt. Needless to say, Clint has just forced himself into a very exclusive clique, one which he must learn to respect.

Well, this week's update is an unorthodox one, as apparently I accidentally skipped the 27th installment of Body in the Foyer the last time I updated. Luckily, this lost episode has been found! Enjoy Clint vomiting, and enjoy the double update!

Looks like Billfred is looking for a 'down low' there in panel five, as celebration for so far excelling at being a murder suspect. Unfortunately, he'll have to learn the hard way that Westcott is more the fist bump type.

(I had a massive ink spill on this one that destroyed most of the page, so I had to do the drawings of panel 2 onward on the computer and then sharpen it to look similar. Did you catch it?)

As you might know if you read the French Club intermission, you lazy bum, I didn't have time to make comics this week, so here's a painting. Overall, it came out better than French Club, I think, but perhaps not as good as it could have been. Clint's hat and sleeves could be bluer, add a spice of color to a mostly vacant canvas, maybe. 7/10. Sometimes my genius astounds me, to be quite blunt. Join us next week for an actual page.

Always lie like a rug to the police if you think you can get away with it! It's their job to find out things, why make it easy for them? Plus, if you can snag a taser while you're with 'em, and then tase them unconscious and pose their bodies in hilarious positions while they're unconscious, they think that's hilarious. That'll score you some forgotten parking tickets, for sure.

Good Cop/Bad Cop always gets results, and is applicable in a wide variety of situations! Try it and see your life improve:

At Work:

You: Hey, boss, I was really wondering if I could have a raise.
Boss: Sorry, Henderson, it's these cutbacks. They're affecting all of us.
You: Hey, that's fine, chum. You want a stick of gum?
Boss: Sure!
You: SHUT UP, YOU DON'T GET ANY GUM!
Boss: Wha—
You: DON'T MAKE ME HAVE TO TELL YOUR FAMILY THAT YOU TRIPPED AND FELL INTO THIS CROWBAR AND THEN ROLLED YOURSELF IN A CARPET AND THREW YOURSELF OFF THE SAN FRANSISCO BRIDGE, SCUMBAG!
Boss: I like the cut of your jib, Henderson.


At Parties:

Stranger: Uh, you see The Help? I just saw The Help.
You: Sure I did, pal, sure I did.
Stranger: Cool—
You: I'M LYING, DIRTBAG, I'VE NEVER SEEN THE HELP! WHAT ARE YOU, AN IDIOT?
Stranger: AAAAH!
You: I forgive you. Let's hug it out, compadre.
Stranger: WH—
You: I'M LYING AGAIN, I DID SEE THE HELP! I ADORE EMMA STONE, I THINK SHE'S A GREATLY UNDERUTILIZED ACTRESS!
You: SHE WAS WONDERFUL IN EASY A, THAT WAS A STARMAKING ROLE!
You: SHE'S GOT A LOT OF POTENTIAL.
You: SCUMBAG.


At Home:

Roommate: Hey, you left your towel on the floor again.
You: Hey, buddy, don't worry about it.
Roommate: Uh—
You: TELL ME WHAT I WANT TO KNOW! (backhanded slap)

Always remember, it's not technically police brutality if you aren't technically a police officer! It's just regular brutality, although for some reason people still get their panties in a twist if you use the nerve gas.

The G stands for GoPackers. Yeah, his dad liked football. The christening was awkward, he brought a foam finger.

Panel layouts are getting more ambitious! Look out, Monet*. I'm patting myself on the back some more. Now it's just turned into a lingering hug. Man I smell good.


*What would Monet's rapper name be?

Answer: MON-AY

(as in money)

...get it?

The panel layouts in these pages are getting more elaborate, especially the one for next week. Hypothetically, I could do any kind of panel layout I wanted, from giant ellipses in a clockwise swirl to a single triangle panel, with more triangles inside it and smaller triangles inside those panels and you get it. I'm a bit too staid to try a Memento-esque unconventional narrative device. I'll stick to being mediocre at the things I do best before I start trying to be mediocre at other things, thank you very much.





Bitf17e280945
That's an apple in panel two, not a shapeless white blob. A merry Costa Rican Arbor Day to you all!

All of the other characters shown in the wide-angle shot two pages ago are still standing there, in an uncomfortable silence, waiting for the narrative spotlight to swing back to them. They're probably avoiding eye contact with each other, maybe checking their twitter. Ah, the eternal ennui of the ancillary character.

As the characters in this comic have demonstrated, I have a bit of a fancy for hats. If I had a million dollars, or if I had only some and the opposing choice was buying food and shelter of some sort, I would still buy a bunch of hats and wear a new one for each day of the week. And people would be like, 'Oh what's Jack wearing today his hats are the highlight of my pathetic, lifeless existence' and I'd come out with an enormous pair of deer antlers on, or a Carmen Miranda fruit pile, or a stuffed raccoon (or some other piece of taxidermy) repurposed into an intimidating balaclava.

Then one day I'd come out wearing no hat at all, and people would say 'What? The heck? No hat? I don't understand! MY FEEBLE, RAT-LIKE MIND CANNOT PROCESS CHANGE!!! WHY IS THERE NO HAT?' And I'd turn to them and look them in the eyes as I'd say, as I made a sweeping gesture with one hand, 'The real hat...Was our HAIR all along' And they'd gasp and scamper away, agape with my wisdom.


Bitf14e280942

Ah, pipes. I like pipes. If I owned a pipe, I'd sit on my porch in a rocking chair and beckon neighborhood children to listen to my long, elaborate stories of my time in 'Nam. Then if one of the children pointed out that I had just recounted the plot summary of Saving Private Ryan in vague terms because I hadn't actually seen the movie, I'd throw glitter into their eyes and escape on my motorcycle. Because I'd be the neighborhood eccentric, and I like to keep kids on their toes.


Bitf13e280942

That hat really makes Hadley's head sweaty, but if he doesn't wear it the other cops tease him about his cowlick. Perhaps inappropriate conversation when you're on a grisly crime scene, but that's the kind of thing you get used to surprisingly quickly.


Bitf12e280943

The first page with the BitF credit line! Very nice. There are many things I like about this page: The tree in the background. Clint's expression, panel 5. Officer Bob's dot eyes instead of my usual small vertical line eyes. Hadley's head shape, which is actually more difficult to get just right than it looks, is consistent in those two panels. Also, you can't tell now, but that's a police car in the background, panel 2. Gad I'm incredible at this.



Bitf11e280943

Those are some nice background trees in panel three.

That is all.



Bitf10e280943


Okay, admittedly, I've been behind on updates after I said I wouldn't  be anymore. There, I admitted it. I assume that's good enough for you. By the way, that background looks different because the camera flipped and it's facing the other direction. Also, that tiny painting in the background in the last two panels? It's a painting of a field. It was painted by Wilhelm Schepman, 17th century artist and poet. It was bought by Whittleby for five hundred thousand dollars when he was visiting the Eastern Berlin Institute for Art. He got a very painful rash on his left thigh on that particular trip.

That's all completely canon. Aren't you glad you get inside information? That will all totally become important later, probably.



Bitf9e280942
We're a a day late on this one, because I didn't have time yesterday to scan this into my computer and upload it. It's worth the wait, though, as you can see! Look at that wall of text and talking heads! Seriously, that's quite a bit of text. Braxton's head appears to be morphing throughout every panel. I'm not sure what
this could mean. Perhaps that moustache is some sort of magic talisman which lets him change shape at will. Yeah, that sounds right.


Bitf8e280944

Ah-ha! He fell from the walkway! Mystery solved. Well, you can all go home.

...

No, seriously, that was it.



Bitf7e280943

That first panel is the best. The rest of it is a little bit meh. For those of you who don't know, I updated French Club as well as this today! You can see it if you just put your clicker over that little 'French Club' button at the top there. No pressure, but it's really good today. Like, REALLY GOOD. Still no pressure. If you DO want to see it, just kind of drag your finger/mouse up there and click that little ol' button. If you do. No pressure.



Bitf6e280943We're a day late on this one, cuz I forgot. I seem to do that a lot. But
who even cares, look at that! You can tell it's a flashback because the
panels are all wavy. I examined those blueprints in panel three, made sure they were correct. Well, kind of. They might work. You know, don't examine them too closely, they're probably fine. Also, Whittleby owns a large, intimidating painting of himself. I want one of those.




Bitf5e280943


This is the first of the new BitF pages I've drawn up, and it's the most magnificent. That's a crash course in one-point perspective, right there. Look at the details! Look at that chandelier! That's a darned fine chandelier. I'd be proud to own a chandelier of that caliber. Look at that corpse! That's a darned fine corpse. I'd be proud to own a corpse of that—well, actually I definitely wouldn't. (I keep mine frozen so that they don't start to stink.)

Ah! Getting an early start today, eh? You're welcome for brightening your day. This is the last of what I prepared before I started the website. Next Saturday you see one of the recent ones I've drawn up! Isn't that exciting? Isn't it, reader? If you said it isn't then you're lying, you feculent perjurer.



Bitf3e280943

This is the second part of that double update I mentioned. I've just noticed right now that those black trees and background objects give an interesting silhouette effect. I'll admit it right now: That was not intentional at all. Seriously, I was going for something else entirely. Looks good now, though.





Bitf2e280943

I just realized that I forgot to post a new one of these last Saturday. I have a terrible memory. So you, lucky reader, will be getting a double update. Enjoy.


Bitf1e280947

I've decided that since I didn't post French Club on time, you, beloved kindred spirit comic reader, deserve something to assuage your potent yearning for my cartoons. Therefore, here you have it, Body in the Foyer 1#, my murder mystery(parody) comic.

This comic is made with an ink and brush, and although it looks slightly...unkempt, I'm happy with the effect. This will update next saturday, so stay tuned. Don't touch that dial! Or else I will find you and kill you. No, I'm lying. Or am I? Spoiler: Yes, I am.
