Best Mann: "What IS this place?"

Best Mann For The Job #26: As the desperate fugitives reach the outskirts of Hope Falls, they come across one of the small town's more, er, "colorful" attractions, the gas station and museum of oddities. In the next strip, readers will begin to get a sense of how bizarre -- and, frankly, low-rent -- the place is.

The GAS -- FOOD -- MUSEUM OF ODDITIES comes from the original novel detailing Grace's former life as an unhappy lady pro wrestler. Of course, you haven't read the novel yet, but we hope to change that soon. (Don't worry, we'll keep you posted as details become available.)

Best Mann For The Job stars Grace Mann, a woman with a complicated past who returns home to become sheriff of Hope Falls, Tennessee. This serial drama aspires to the style of the classic continuity comic strips, with the crime-bustin' chops of a rural Dick Tracy, the small-town charm of Gasoline Alley, and the emotional touches of The Heart of Juliet Jones. (Or if you prefer, think of it as a cross between T.J. Hooker and Northern Exposure.)
