I can't be the only one who got halfway through Panel 3 and REALLY hoped that it would turn out to have been "The Scat Burglar" (The Fiend Who Does not Flush), can I?

I love the Knifeketeer! Where can I get one of those helmets? It looks like it's modeled after Magneto's... Ooh! Does Ric harbor a secret, darker side to his powers as Stabneto?

Judging by panel three, I think the sidekick's name "Stabby" is a bit incongruous. The tip of his, er, knife, is rather rounded. It looks like he's wielding an icing spatula, dull bread knife, or maybe a humorously large butter knife. A more apt name might be "Cutty" or "The Spreader."

I thought this was going a whole other direction - like the Knifeketeer was actually going to be the one arrested.
Regardless, another win. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Love the knowledge stick. I used to threaten to go around smacking people with a clue by four.

(That's a polished oak 2x4 with the word "Clue" engraved on it - it leaves a mark so when ever they look in the mirror, they get a clue...)

It's a well-chosen name for Knifeketeer's sidekick, but Stabby may simply not be ready for a deadly weapon. I'd like to think that his weapon is a finger (hopefully artificial) on a stick, to complement the Knifeketeer's boxing glove. Stabby would presumably poke people in the eye when necessary. His name, then, would be less of a mission statement, and more of a vision statement. A vision statement that pokes you in the eye.

I think the non-pointed thing in Stabby's hand is a knife sharpener.

Any chance that you'll get the "The Worlds Violentest Logo Tshirts" in stock in unisex XL?

Note from Scott: Sadly no. Those were a one-time run of screen printed shirts. Sorry.

For the other two people who still play SWTOR, am I the only one who refers to the Operative class as 'Knifeketeer?'

@khereva I only played Snipers...

Kherva, you are not now.

Curse you, Knifeketeer! You have gotten my name wrong yet again! You speak of me in the past tense, as if I were no longer relevant! I am Easily Identifiable STILL! I shall have my revenge as soon as the thumb heals! Mwahahahahahahahaha!

@Biscus0001 - I think it's a butter knife. :)

@ Brian: The Scatburglar is the guy who shows up after The Phantom Shitter, who is 'The Fiend Who Does Not Flush'... can imagine what the Scatburglar's modus operandi is.

I think it's pretty evident that Stabby is modeled somewhat on Speedy, Green Arrow's sidekick. GA's goofy boxing glove arrow is what The Knifeketeer's boxing glove knife is modeled after.
