Inky is a male dognose.
A scrawny, stuttering youth, Inky briefly served as the Phantom Blot's henchman. In 1997, he took part in Blot's scheme to discredit Detective Casey and thus cancel his promotion to Chief of Police. The inevitable failure of the scheme landed him in jail alongside his master.
Behind the scenesEdit
Inky appears in the 1997 story Chief Casey's Longest Night.
Translator Joe Torcivia had considered the name "Blotch" as an alternative American name for the character, but "Inky" was deemed more suitable in the end by editor David Gerstein. It is possible that Blotch is the true last name of Inky, as "Inky" is obviously just a nickname.
