Welcome To The Life Of Lucky
This graphic novel is not porn. I know it looks like it might be that way, but trust me there is far too much plot and not enough money shots.
The original version of this page the drawing is a lot stiffer and the dialogue is a bit confusing. The additional frame and far more economical writing in the new version make the page a lot easier to understand. I also like the fact that Lucky looks more arrogant and the women look less like dolls without personality. Anything I can do to humanize my work is a good thing.
For Russian Readers Who May Assume That Moskovsky Is A Mistranslated Geographical Name
The Moskovsky Lucky is referring to, happens to be a rural territory centered around the Moskovsky Industrial Farm administrated by Mosagro, as opposed to Moscow proper. Nicotash, the fictional Romani settlement camp and later illegal village that Lucky resided in, was located just in the outskirts of the farmland itself. Since Gadje people would probably not be savvy to Nicotash, Lucky refers to the Moskovsky terrain instead. (Thanks to Alisa for pointing out the need for this clarification.)

Lucky To unseen characters
I'm Bahktale Strikes Vasquez Drina, third cousin of the five undisputed Rroma kings. That's not my legal name. You Gadje folks can call me "Lucky".
A younger Lucky, around his thirties, is sitting on a chair by the window. He is having sex with three Russian women. All of them have blond hair.
Short-haired blonde To Lucky
You are so exotic and insatiable.
