When murder is no big dill, you call in The Homicidal Gherkin.

In the beginning of 2017, as we all do when the year starts out, I made a resolution – to draw a new character a week.

The Homicidal Gherkin’s origin story is entombed in 420 comments and pickle puns

We will publish a finished comic every Saturday, and show updates and work in progress throughout the week on Instagram and Facebook.
