    Ruined a perfectly good pair of polyesters.

    When you gotta go, you gotta go. Even if you’re a rogue.

    I was going to suggest Rogain, cause Kyle has an advantage here. He can go back inside and change those polyesters for a good pair of waders.

    Especially surprising as there is no body of water within miles of Ballard Street.

    We are down to our last suspect in Episode 9 of Murder on the Midnight Express:

    How could a guy in bunny slippers be guilty of this foul crime?

    So many questions still to be answered. Is that really Vlad? Or Vlad’s servant/butler/bodyguard/ Man Friday?

    When he says “kill,” is that like murder but with a good reason? If so, what is a good reason?

    Did Vlad – or the big guy – kill Mr. GC? Did Grace? Is there a connection between Grace & Vlad? After all, Grace did tell Sam earlier that she was going to “impale” him with her stare.

    Where did the big guy get the slippers? Were they a gift from his mom? A gift from Vlad, who has a peculiar sense of humor? Or did he pick them out himself? Are they part of a uniform?

    Don’t go away! Nighthawks will be right back (well, in 2-3 days) with some answers! Unless there are only more questions. What a letdown THAT would be.

    And here we are again, fellow Cleovians…

    Once again riding on that mystery train, the Midnight Express….

    As it clickety-clacks its way through the

    November 20th, 2020 episode of “Cleo and Company” on Sherpa…


    An episode which soon… and severely….tests the intrepidity… um… intrepididity… er… intrepidness… of our favorite flap-eared shamus.

    I mean… it’s understandable, isn’t it?

    Even a chain-smoking basset hound hero’s studied nonchalance can only go so far…

    when he’s face to face with a huge tower of self-described “Impaler!”


    Just how tall IS this guy?

    And what the ¡@#¿¥! is the difference between mere “killing” and cold blooded MURDER?


    I guess we won’t find out THIS week….

    That’s how they get us to come back you know.

    That’s how they fill the seats, and sell the kibblecorn.


    Meanwhile… we still have a stiff in the floor of a Pullman compartment, and not much of an idea how he got that way.

    Seems like everybody wanted to see that creep six feet under… but they all say they didn’t put him there.

    A slight technicality: Vlad was kinda noncommittal …

    But … he’s… um… I mean… well…. are YOU gonna argue with him?


    When you look like THAT, ya know… you can get away with murder.


    Hey… wait just a minute….

    Maybe that moving truck passing by in a hurry has something to do with Todd’s current calamity.

    although I rarely leave comments, this is the best comic I read. Between the animation, the story, and art work, I really love it.Keep up the great work and go from success to greater success!

    Nice slippers indeed. I didn’t know Susan’s supplier sells Emperor-sized shoes, too.

    Episode IX: It’s so hard knowing whodunit and being sworn to secrecy.

    Love the bunny slippers, too. But, another typo – the Mi*g*night Express?

    I still love the train crossing the night sky. So calming. Little do we know there is a murderer on board. A murderer with Bunny Slippers? Gotta see the end of this soon.

    I love a serious murder mystery that has some humor. Stronger interrogation methods? Go for it, Sam!

    I’m still wondering if the real murderer is standing right beside Sam Basset.
