The Carrot Crusader made it into print! My strip, as well as the other excellent comic strips by my fellow illustrators Ted, Andrew, Will, Daisy, Rosy, Adele, Charlie, Heather and James are finally available for purchase in the form of a collective anthology known as ‘Defective Comics’ (the name was Heather’s idea I believe, nice one Heather) – details on how to buy will follow in an edit as soon as I know what the arrangements are.
**EDIT** Thanks to the tireless efforts of Mister Ted, the comic is available here: http://tenbandits.bigcartel.com/product/defective-comics – buy! Buy! BUYY!!
The comic didn’t do amazingly well at the Thought Bubble comic convention that it was initially intended for, but really, with the massive (and admittedly far superior) competition it would have had there, it’s pretty impressive that we managed to sell any at all, and I’d like to express my thanks to the brave souls who manned the Glyndwr University table, as due to an (extreme) lack of finances, I was unable to attend and help out – thanks guys 🙂 (EXTREME!!)
Below are some photo’s of the finished comic, printed en masse and relatively cheaply, at the Newspaper Club – why not have a gander, you’re here anyway…
As you can see by the final photo, we also had a series of more light-hearted gag-strips in the centre, as a break from the ‘Certainly Officer…’ recurring theme. We each had to draw a short strip featuring anything we liked – my particular favourites are Daisy’s, Rosy’s and James’ particularly brilliant ‘Chicken Comics’… where the hell DID that chicken go?
Anyway, here’s mine:
