Map of the Sea

What I quietly like about this comic is the map Ollie is holding which obviously just shows a blue sea... nothing else.

Sunday Strip in full

It should have been Worm-man and Gullman but that double 'm' in Worm-man scuppered that.

With Editors like these...

My daughter and her friend are in New York, the home of King Features and my brilliant editor Brendan Burford. I received an email from Esme this morning saying they'd met up with Brendan and been jamming with him in Central Park. He blew them away with his banjo playing. Is there no end to the guy's talents? 

This is the kind of editor I have.

Daughter in the USA

My 19 year old daughter is in the US for 6 weeks. She's never been away that long before. If you see an eccentric, tall, funny, beautiful, red haired English girl carrying a Ukulele on her back that's my lovely Esme. She's with her best friend Flick (Felicity). They've started in Buffalo, and are then heading down to Manhattan and then south to Florida and across the southern states through Texas, Arizona and California, ending in Las Vegas in 6 weeks time.
If you see them please check my daughter's been eating some vegetables and if you can offer them somewhere to wash and lay their heads for the night I might sleep well that night.

One of the criticisms...

I try to address the criticisms I sometimes receive about my comic, in my comic. (Every now and again I mention how Ollie and Quentin look nothing like a seagull and a lugworm. Perhaps I should say this is a strip about a duck and a severed thumb). Anyway, this isn't an answer just a gag about my characters not having very expressive faces. Subtlety isn't everyone's cup of tea I have learned.

I think some will struggle to get today's comic. If you're old enough to remember the Bee Gees you'll know they had a #1 hit called 'Tragedy'. You should get the joke now. Click here if you'd like to hear the song.

This cartoon is crying out for a damn good Tom & Jerry-type "CLANG!"

A recent favorite

This is a particular favorite of mine. Not only do I like the daft joke but I enjoy drawing boxes (yeah, I know) and love coloring dark scenes like this. Also, who hasn't wanted to joust at least once in their life?

Sunday Strip in full

My lovely daughter works at one of those fish pedicure places where you dip your feet in tanks of Garra Rufa Fish and they eat all the dead skin etc off you. That 'familiar' title panel is taken from my favorite movie 'Jaws', not the first time I've used that image.
