Adafruit’s comic reading list: Lackadaisy by Tracy J. Butler #adafruitcomics

Lackadaisy is a story of jazz-age St. Louis bootlegging, as performed by anthropomorphic cats.

That description doesn’t do it justice though.  Take a look at this clip from the cast page:

The art is stunning and the characters are just the right amount of cliche — the vamp, the dapper monster, the loose cannon, the quiet one who comes unhinged when he gets his hands on a gun, etc.

Club Lackadaisy, an elegant speakeasy, fell on hard times when its owner Atlas May was killed.  Now Mitzi May and the few employees who haven’t moved on to other gangs are trying to bring it back.  The first order of business is to get a supply of liquor past all the other competing gangs, most notably a brother and sister team from New Orleans who now have Atlas’s best killer on their payroll.

The story is mostly drama, but has a dark sense of humor:

Updates come slowly — as in “every few months” slowly — but are worth the wait.  In the meantime, there’s enough material for a good archive binge.
