Welcome to a "World of Hurt"

World of Hurt is an online comic strip written
and drawn by Jay Potts. I'll let him describe the series for you:

"WORLD OF HURT is Super Fly meets The Equalizer.

WORLD OF HURT is the wayward step-child of Ernest Tidyman’s John Shaft and Alex Raymond’s Rip Kirby, desperately trying to live up to the greatness of his forebears."

Now, for the uninitiated, Potts has proven his street-geek cred by name-dropping Ernest Tidyman. If you are only familiar with Shaft via the movies, you really need to check out Tidyman's novels — the literary version is the definition of badass. Potts has also eaten a scorpion and has caught a rattlesnake with his bare hands. I met him last year at the HeroesCon in Charlotte, N.C., but luckily he didn't bring the snake with him.

Above are the first three strips from the World of Hurt series. You can catch up on the rest at worldofhurtonline.com. A collected edition is reportedly forthcoming.
