John Reppion and I did a fun one page comic, me working from his 280 character tweet style script based on the topic of this weeks Folklore thursday on twitter...



I think we'd like to do more. We'll see...

I like that.

Speaking from a reader's perspective, those are perfect examples of how to do text boxes. These days, I'm much less tolerant of wading through mini-panels of text.

I like the narwhals, too.

Regards,

I really enjoyed that! The comic was excellent and the write up of how you put it together was great.

I hope you do more!

I assume there was a time, long ago, when PJ was just another perfecty solid 2000AD artdroid. The question now is, when exactly did he get so incredibly good. This is a downright beautiful page, in a sequence of same: very recent examples including Justine in the T&J Special, that magic piece about his Mum and that Stationary Shop page with @spleenal: top of his game right now
 Honestly can't wait to read that latest war epic.

That was lovely.
