There must always be a Litchfield
This next chunk of the story features a rare cameo appearance by a character from another strip -- the notorious Litchfield, from Brian Carroll's Instant Classic! What can I say? It's not the sort of thing I usually do, but this story had a particular role to be filled and Litchy was the absolute perfect candidate -- especially considering he and Rikk's past relationship is already well documented. I couldn't resist!
That said, I'm going to treat old Litchfield like I would any brand new, never-before-seen character... so even if you've never read Instant Classic, you'll have no trouble getting introduced and following the rest of the story. But man, if you haven't read it... go read it! It's a great comic.
PS: Thanks for the loner, Bri!
