The Suburban Slasher is referenced as a serial killer (5/3) but is that the same thing as a hitman who doesn’t mind targeting copy? (5/6)And why Suburban? Does Lucian only bump off small town cops? Who pays him for that? Is that an actual line of business for a contract killer?
Why does it take a professional hitman six shots at point-blank range, pulled alongside the victim? (5/4)
What was the point of making Officer Hart African-American? (5/4) The interracial marriage angle never seemed to be an issue re. motive. Or was this depending on what internet source colorist I read the day Office Hart was intro’ed…& immediately killed?
Why would a sole police officer on the midnight shift NOT notice a car pull alongside her vehicle? (5/4) Her paperwork was that absorbing?
More specifics that had no pay-off. A pair of California references that ultimately had no connection to each other, or the murder plot— 1) “Cut” Famon released from Federal prison in CA (5/1) & 2) a half-dozen PFF killed in southern CA police shoot-out (5/5)
“We ignored a few legal niceties…” (5/9) CONGRATULATIONS! YOU JUST PROVED WENDY WICHEL RIGHT ALL THESE YEARS! TRACY’S ABOVE THE LAW & NOT ACCOUNTABLE! (I haven’t ready anything earlier than Boris Arson story but if this was how Gould depicted Tracy in the 30’s strips…well, I’m glad he changed that angle. Yech.)
Lucian has “sixth sense” (or tipped-off by his employer) & yet he charges out front door to confront Tracy (5/8) & then immediately thereafter three? four? five? (Pat?) more cops who immediately open fire on him? (5/9) Wow. Spectacularly dumb tactics for a professional killer.
And lastly, you can reference James M. Cain & Occam’s Razor all your want but all Tracy’s loosey-goosey speculations today (5/12) are just that— speculations, not cold hard evidence.
