> Richard was the hard-luck “blasphemous” DJ that the first Foolkiller tried to kill and the second (Rich’s ex-cellmate, Greg) followed around like a homicidal puppy. It always seemed to me that the best way to attract a Foolkiller’s attention is to be unfortunate enough to know Rich. Granted I have no idea if the current guy has any connection to Rich at all since I haven’t read the new stuff.
> Thanks for the explanation as to WHY Rich was in jail, though. My knowledge of the character comes entirely from having recently read Essential Man-Thing vol 1 and Omega the Unknown Classic so I seem to have missed quite a few appearances.

The reason Rory was in jail was because he sort of kidnapped a young girl at the end of the original Man-Thing series. Granted that the girl's mother was a lunatic book-burner who aided an abetted an even loonier murderer, Rory allowed the kid to talk him into taking her away from Citrusville to get away from her mom...which made him a de facto kidnapper of a minor.
