It’s Sloth vacation time! While the Dolphin searches for him back home, DS is laying low but living it up! Apparently sloths are kickass swimmers, and DS is no exception. Plus, he never loses his hat! This is my first comic without dialogue, so I apologize if you’re looking for an explicit joke or humor. I just think sloths chillin’ out are funny enough, I guess. It’s also my personal farewell to summer, which unfortunately is coming to a swift close. In any case, next week DS is back on the job, so stay tuned!
CONTINUED FROM DS #16! Greetings from my mobile phone! I’m in Virginia for a couple of days, but the DS show must go on! Sloth has escaped the Dolphin for now, but the crime lord won’t stay quiet for long. Nevertheless, Sloth must escape the heat The Dolphin is surely calling down on him by taking a sweet vacation in DS #18! See you then!
CONTINUED FROM DS #15! That’s right DS fans! The city’s most mysterious crime boss is finally revealed… and he’s actually a dolphin! As the old saying goes, the simplest explanation is usually correct (and yes, that was Reznikov in DS #07). You can expect a lot more from this villainous aquatic mammal in the future. Next week we see how Sloth survives his 109-story fall! Until then, keep it slothy. CONTINUED IN DS #17!
CONTINUED FROM DS #14! Hello Sloth fans! Here sloth gets himself into a sticky situation, and the Dolphin is finally revealed to him! Yup. Cliffhanger. Sorry, dudes. Don’t worry though, I’m not going to pull a Lost on you, the Dolphin will be triumphantly revealed in the very first frame of DS #16! Until then, keep on slothin’. CONTINUED IN DS #16!
CONTINUED FROM DS #13! We have sloths jumping out of helicopters here. Yup. Sloth is infiltrating the office skyscraper of the villainous Reznikov, believed to be the Dolphin (yes, he uses his claws as a lock-pick up there). We’ll eventually see more of Ellis the helicopter pilot in future Sloth episodes… helicopters are awesome and I’m going to make sure they’re all over the place. As we’ve seen before, Sloth’s hat stays on no matter what’s happening. In any case, Sloth is bound to get to the bottom of this mystery, so don’t miss next week’s installment! CONTINUED IN DS #15!
CONTINUED FROM DETECTIVE SLOTH #12! Hello! Sloth has made up his mind, he’s going after Reznikov after last week’s shootout, believing him to be the mysterious criminal mastermind The Dolphin (as seen in DS #12 and DS #06). Sorry if the continuing story is a bit confusing for any new guys, but you just have to start a few pages back to get up to speed. Next week we have a skydiving sloth, and some sneaky business goes on, so stay tuned! CONTINUED IN DETECTIVE SLOTH #14!
CONTINUED FROM DETECTIVE SLOTH #11! Yup. Detective Sloth is in action taking down bad guys (presumably) set upon them by the Dolphin (after getting marked by Reznikov in last week’s comic)! Get ready for Sloth to go on a Dolphin seek-and-destroy mission! Yeah, this is probably as far as violence will ever go in this comic. Although Sloth is very cute and cuddly, his line of work is pretty dark, and he does come up against some evil dudes. Next time Sloth calls an old friend to help him on his mission, so stay tuned! Make sure you like DS on Facebook too! CONTINUED IN DETECTIVE SLOTH #13!
Detective Sloth is hot on the trail of the Dolphin, based on the murder investigation from DS #07 (yeah, I know I mistakenly credited it in the comic itself, sue me). Here’s where things start get interesting in the rivalry between Sloth and the city’s most mysterious crime lord. I just got back from vacation, and I saw Dark Knight Rises down in Virginia, and it was pretty damn awesome. Comic fans, you should probably go see it if you haven’t already. This story continues in Detective Sloth #12, when things start getting really crazy (and action-packed)! Until next time! CONTINUED IN DETECTIVE SLOTH #12!
Greetings from North Carolina! Detective Sloth doesn’t take vacations, but I do. Here’s one of the problems with being a sloth on the force: just being super slow (although I read somewhere that sloths can move as fast as cats if threatened, which is pretty frightening but also awesome). Luckily Sloth has an extreme remedy to the situation. Next week sees the start of the first legitimate continuing storyline (5+ comics!), all centered around the Dolphin! So stick around! I believe that will become a more regular format moving forward, with a few unrelated one-shot comics and then short storyline arcs, so hopefully I can keep that going. I’m going to get out to the beach now, so until next Sunday, I’m out. Enjoy!
Hey guys! Here’s Detective Sloth on a dinner date pulling an Abe Froman. I’m not sure how successful the joke is on this one, but… whatever. In any case, I have to give props to my bro Kyle on this joke, messing with waitstaff and being generally petty. We also get a reintroduction to Vivienne, who unfortunately doesn’t get to flex her dramatic muscles here but will soon return! Anyway, hope everybody had a good holiday! Next week we hit double digits with Sloth finally brandishing his signature revolver!
