Kicking it with Ian McShane

Friday, May 30th, 2008

There is a guest strip by us on Scary Go Round today. Drawn by the keeper of the Flying Monkey Comics legacy, Andrew Livesey, and written by me, it features Antiques based rogue Lovejoy, sorry Lovelace getting into some time travel shenanigans.

“Guest strip” implies that we were specifically headhunted by SGR creator John Allison, his people spoke to our people, deals were brokered, and we completed the strip for an obscene amount of cash. And chicks. Nothing could be further from the truth, of course. As big fans of Scary Go Round, we entered the Feats of Strength competition, and were lucky enough to get picked for glory, adulation, and a freak spike in our page hits.

It wasn’t plain sailing though. This collaboration lark is a nightmare. These bloody artists can’t stick to the script to save their lives. The story was originally about the plight of impoverished French farmers in the nineteen twenties!

Anyway, be sure to check out Scary Go Round a week from now because that strip is so awesome it will make you shit out your spleen through your eyeballs.
