a Smeary Soapbox Press webcomic by Dale Martin
An emerald, you say? What could it mean….

I like Hector’s uniform. By the way, how much research did you do on South America for this strip? (And no, that’s not sarcasm.)
I had fun designing the police uniforms! I was shooting for a bit of French Foreign Legion with the hats and jodhpurs. I didn’t do much in the way of research, just kind of winging it as I go along (tho BabelFish is helping me with my pidgin Spanish). Come to think of it, I should have scheduled a “research junket” to the Caribbean…
I can hear the theme music for “Police Squad” in my head as I read this one. 😉
Let’s hope Hector is a better cop then I currently imagine him to be.
Given the passive police officers I’ve shown so far in this strip, it’s about time I showed a competent one…
Your storytelling keeps getting better and better, Dale. Excellent!!
Thanks – I was thinking this would be a slow couple of strips while Emmett & Hector get up to speed with the reader. Glad to hear it was enjoyable!
You know I would think the idea of a dog wearing a tie would strike Hector a little odd, but apparently a dog with a bone is a little odder on La Isla! 😉
Very astute – you’re ahead of my game by about two strips, Tom! Stay tuned …
