Like this a lot. Nice use of the dry brush.

Hmmm... so the missing girl is with the Jewish mafia and now Sleepy is being followed by Nazis from his past...

Moody. A surprising development, in both story and art style. Sleepy's had quite the interesting life ain't he?

Cheers. Well, the setting is the late forties so I figured Sleepy saw some action like everybody else during ww2, only I wanted to stay true to his opening lines on page 1. And since so many airborne landed with just a boot knife because they'd lost their ammo and rifles in the drop it figured that sleepy did the same so he likely punched his way out of Europe.

So we have Sleepy's girl who's real name is French mixing with the Kosher Nostra and some Nazi in hiding pointing a gun at Sleepy's spine - the plot thickens.
