Just who is this guy Rod Rosse theOne Man Posse? Well, Rod is a complicated fellow and a bounty hunter who will use any means necessary to catch his targets (and we mean any). Mostly, he likes to "roofie" them, and cuff them when they are "lights out". He's what happens when you take one part Don Knotts and one part Steve Buscemi, and mixed it with a whole lot of sneaky little bastard. He and his mother run Rosse Bail Bonds in Long Beach, CA.
Bill Plympton's first take on Rod Rosse
As you can see above, this is Bill Plympton's very cool take on the character. Rod Rosse has a signature comb-over, which Bill has since added. The thing about Rod Rosse is he can take a licking and keeps on taking another licking. He's an expert at getting beaten up. Below, you can see Rod in action in the Jim Lujan short ROD ROSSE THE ONE MAN POSSE. Then stay tuned and see Rod star in REVENGEANCE, in production now!
This is Bill Plympton's line art for a character named Luis Escobar. He's a fugitive that we get to meet at the beginning of Revengeance. Rod Rosse has the distinct pleasure of trying to capture this sweaty, hairy, 300 lb behemoth of a man. Trivia fact: Luis Escobar was named after a very nice Luis Escobar, who is NOT a fugitive from the law nor is he 300 lbs hairy or sweaty. The real Luis Escobar works on the Simpson's TV show and is an amazing artist. Jim Lujan decided to name this character after his friend, Luis, because of the total contrast in personality.
