F16 - Quiet Riot by jbwarner86 F16 - Quiet Riot by jbwarner86
Kendra's thuggish older brother Vince hasn't shown up much in the Forever 16 strips I've written so far, but this June 7, 1992 strip showcases both him and his girlfriend Chantelle. And considering how short Vince's fuse gets whenever someone else hits on his girlfriend, Aaron should consider himself lucky that this example of shaky race relations didn't spawn a three-day riot too.

Who says"Word" anymore other than White kids from The Disney Channel and Drake? Kind of old slang...

That's the point. This is supposed to look like it's from 1992.

Then I think the Black girl's hair would have been natural and the black boy would probably have a box cut.

Could be worse - Aaron could have tried "street talk" with Vince. Oy, that would have been nasty :P

I remember the quote as "Can't we all just get along?" because that was how everybody at school repeated it. Shouldn't there be a "just" in there?

It's one of those quotes that seems to have mutated through constant reuse. Like how Captain Kirk actually said "Mr. Spock, three to beam up" instead of "Beam me up, Scotty". :)

A huge three-day riot erupted in Los Angeles in April 1992, in response to the "not guilty" verdict of the infamous Rodney King trial (wherein several white Los Angeles cops were accused of beating civilian Rodney King just because he was black). In response to the violence, King famously stated "Can't we all get along?".

It's one of those Forever 16s where the humor is very topical but I don't go out of my way to give context for it, because the incident is still pretty widely remembered.

Well this one of the more weaker stips for me, I don't like 2 dimensional jerkish characters that are just jerks. I think Riley from the Boondocks had a better way dealingwith the archtypical thuggish wannabe character

Oh, Vince isn't always this angry. But if someone tried to hit on your girlfriend, you'd be pretty pissed off too. :)

I've got some stories in the hopper that'll flesh out Vince a little bit more. Much like Lindsay, Kevin, Abby, Derek, Shawn, Eric, or Jenny, he's one of those characters who I'd really like to work with more frequently, but since I'm introducing Forever 16 to a new audience at the moment, I need to focus more heavily on the six main characters for a couple of months before I can start devoting more time and effort to the supporting cast.

Well I hope the best for you, lately I been more analytical with stories, I mostly self taught story and character structure stuff.

I would like to give you more story and character based advice to you, even though I'm not an actually writer, at this point I'm just a critic

lol... that's a hilarious strip!

My mother would have said "Selbe Schuld" to that (It's your own stupid fault) if I came home with a black eye after something like that. :D

I have a long story arc in mind that deals with that. Once I get all these origin stories out of the way, I'll get to work on it. :)
