Folklore Thursday: Island
« on: 18 July, 2019, 11:21:03 pm »
Full blog here: http://www.pauljholden.com/2019/07/18/island/

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,

Robin

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.

See also: Aspidochelone, which gives us Fastitocalon.

Thanks for the kind words (which I somehow missed!)

It's Thursday and we did another one...!

Glorious shot of Satan's tender arse there, and I never heard that one!  I presume this is an explanation for that grey mould you get all over them at the end of the season*, but it's a fine line between grabbing the latest, sweetest blackberries that have escaped your predecessors and what I now know to be supping on the devil's piss.

There's a brilliant wee book in these, you know.

I'd buy it.

Actually, these would be perfect as a regular feature in something like a new Scream! or Misty.

Single page folklore mini-stories illustrated as beautifully as that could find a home in many publications, but if Rebellion do relaunch any of those titles (and they seem to be testing the waters with all these specials), they would be a perfect fit.

Or a book. I'd buy it.

or Fortean Times would be a perfect spot.
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

It's Thursday!

Today's topic, Trees / Forests...



(Also if an admin can change the title to "Folklore Thursday" and remove the ": Island" on the topic that'd be great! )
