Registered Weapon Case 6 p3

Registered Weapon has been running online for three years now. It’s an action comedy webcomic about a tough-guy cop and his partner, a walking, talking cash register. Think the sensibilities of the Dragnet remake (with Tom Hanks and Dan Ackroyd) combined with a robot pet, like if the dog in Turner and Hooch was made of metal.

It’s written by Gardner Linn and Chris Thorn and illustrated by Dave Lentz and Rob Simmons. Last week, they launched their sixth story, or “case”, as they call them. In this one, the cops have to deal with their lives becoming the basis for a TV show, allowing for lots of jabs at Hollwood. Of course, there’s a murder on the set that they have to investigate.

This story is available in two formats, so you can make your choice. Read it serialized online, as they publish new pages every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, or download a chapter as PDF, CBR, or CBZ each month. Yes, they’ve come back around to the monthly comic release (only the chapters are 8 to 10 pages). Chapter 1 is now available (but weirdly, not on their download page); Chapter 2 is due out December 10.
