I’ve been wanting folks to get to know more about Jamal than just his stereotypical militant/protesting side for a bit. Yes, he’s super rich, but he doesn’t play it up . The only time I’ve hinted at it was when John tried sleeping in his pool house, he wore a Hugh Hefner style smoking jacket and his walls were really fancy.
George and Jamal are outside of Vlad’s here because it’s time for another monster poker game which we’ll see shortly. I changed up the sign from the last time I showed the outside of Vlad’s to get the traditional neon tubing look.
Also, I’m pretty pleased with the reverse 3/4s of George in panel 4. It’s not 100% right, but it’s close. Getting more angles to the characters that look dead on, correct is a goal of mine for the rest of the year.
