We all live in the future now

Weirdness Department: I was informed yesterday by Chris Reilly that Fred the Clown makes a cameo appearance in Futurama Issue #39. I haven't seen it myself, but I'm dying to.

Working on writing the third issue of the Muppet comic and pencilling the first issue and, er, that's about it. Nate Cosby at Marvel asked me to write eight pages for an upcoming Spider-Man comic, which I can just about work into my hour-and-a-half per day writing schedule if I move some stuff around. Now all I need is an idea. Eek.

For no reason at all, except for a glancing Marvel Comics connection, here's a strip I did for a convention booklet many moons ago. It's scanned from the printed page and doesn't look too pretty as a result, but I think the gags sort of stand up nonetheless. It's a page I should probably redraw one day.


  1. This is great.

    You know, the world really needs a "Many Loves of Granny Goodness" comic ...

  2. Congrats on the Futurama nod. I love when they do that. I’ll look out for it.

  3. No redrawing necessary. You nut. It's perfect!

  4. Well, the original isn't too shabby - wherever it is. The scan is pretty bad, though. It would be nice to have a version I could re-publish one day.

  5. what'd be cool is if you'd do a new version of the old "Kirby Alphabet" thing you did for the UKCAC a ways back. yeah, that'd be cool. . .

  6. I think I actually have a decent copy of that somewhere. But a new one, with all new characters... one day, that would be nice. It's not like Kirby didn't come up with enough of the buggers.

  7. Love the Kirby Planet strip. Baron Zemo's Adhesive X reminds me of the Power Records Captain America book & record I had as a kid! I'd love to see your Kirby Alphabet one day.


The spam filter is back on because it just goes berserk if I switch it off. Sorry - I'll get to your comments ASAP!
