Something about inept criminals in the wrong line of work is amusing to me. In the very first RUNNERS short story (originally published in the Small Press Expo 2000 Anthology and reprinted in the RUNNERS: Bad Goods graphic novel), I had the crew interacting with a group of nervous chihuahua-like aliens. In this scene, it’s the cockroach-like Preegans. I just like that they feel the need to apologize for their actions and also get their feelings hurt by Roka’s insult.
