“It’s actually about how I learnt to play,“ [Jonny] says. "Me and my
grandfather would play show tunes together, you see? He’d sit me on his
knee when I was three, and teach me how to play the banjo. And I
remember saying one day, ’Enough of My Fair Lady!’ And that’s how
rock'n’roll was born.”
Rock’n’roll was born in your house?!“
“Sort of. I was actually born at Sun Studios. I’ve got a letter from Cliff saying. ‘Thanks a lot’.”
But Cliff was British.”
“Ah, but Elvis copied Cliff, you see? That’s my theory. It’ll end with
Cliff. You’ll see,“ Jon continues his apocalyptic rant. "Armageddon
will happen. It’ll end with a yellow tracksuit."

Thug´s Life was our stretch goal, a comic, for our last Kickstarter for Tales of Alethrion. We will reveal a chapter everyday this week with a new chapter. It is about Mira who you saw in The Reward face Wilhelm in a deadly battle: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Cw7aAFS5oc ).
This is about her before she faced Wilhelm and how she turned into a thug. She started out wanting justice in the world and wanted to become a police guardian of Draloque. Enjoy! Return tomorrow and read chapter two!
