Props to my friend Jared for suggesting that the Spade and Archer detective agency could have been very different with a different Archer. This was pretty much all his idea. He’s a funny guy and I asked him to throw a gag my way. When he sent it, it made me laugh loud enough to worry what the neighbors thought.

I intended all along to draw Archer as close to ‘on model’ as I could. But I couldn’t decide whether to make Sam Spade a stick man or not. In the end, I figured if I was gonna fart around so long on it already, I might as well go all out.

Sorry there was no comic last week. I’m working on a super secret project and I spent the whole of last weekend working on it.
