Locke met James Two at the 1997 Midwest Comic Con. They argued over the price of a 1991 near mint condition (2nd edition) of Superman. Locke said that Bruce Wayne's true identity couldn't have held up over all these years while James merely said that Lois was pretty fly.
They've been friends ever since.
Fast forward to the early 2000s, where James and Locke shared stages all over the West Coast, playing for drink tickets and laughter in empty rooms. They knew no boundaries, except two mountain passes and two hundred miles: James calling the metropolis of Missoula, Montana home and Locke proud to represent the sprawling Spokane, Washington.
James lived with Locke in the summer of 2005, and they shared nary a laugh while James recorded the epic Shovel album, and drank many a PBR with Anjye. Locke got married and James moved out. However they would not be seperated for long.
Fast forward to late 2006. Locke somehow convinces James to move to Seattle using bribes of Pho and jobs supporting his already inflating alchoholism. The trilogy is now complete, and the Rookie of the Year should soon be named.
If the Jiggywatts were a comic book, Locke would be running off to phone booths to hopefully not be shot at by Jack Bauer and James would be macking Lois Lane.
