Lucky Bishop in Agony Acres comics

Lucky Bishop

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


Agony Acres was a mid-1990s indie comic books (published by AA2). It was a police procedural in a near-future setting, if I remember correctly.

This writeup is very old, and was done either while the series was still running or shortly after its end.


Not much is known about Lucky’s life before he partnered with Jack Calhoun. It is know he has a love of Hot Dogs with mustard and onions and of gambling. In fact, while Jack was at the Virtua-Pit observing the match, Lucky was placing his bet when he noticed a familiar looking Linen uniform.

He followed the person to a rendezvous with Johnny Slam, whom he and Calhoun just busted the night before. If he has any thoughts to the investigation, he has thus far kept them to himself.


Lucky looks to be about 5’ 8”. He is blond haired, blue-eyed, and pudgy.


Lucky is by far the more easy-going of the two. He has a tendency to run off at the mouth, which prompts Calhoun to tell him to shut up.
