Jar Jar Binks Fan Comic - with Jim Campbell!

I just happened upon this while browsing earlier. It's one of the funniest strip I've read! Jar Jar sure makes for a good laugh, just look at his skit on Robot Chicken....

But the thing I found of big interest about the comic, was that it was coloured by our very own Jim (or at least I hope it was our Jim!)

Great job!  :D

Nope. That's the other Jim Campbell.

Who, oddly, is not the same Jim Campbell that had a couple of Future Shocks published in the Prog back in the 500s and is also not me.

Cheers!

Oops, my bad!  :-[

Thanks for clarifying it though, Jim!

Is that really another Jim Campbell, Jim, or are you being modest? I thought it was you and indeed got quite excited seeing your future shocks in the ickle mini book of them that I found the other week. If it isn't I may have to reread with my more cynical head on. And I dont want to, commit, they were fun!

Really, really not me. I was at university and drinking quite heavily at the time, but I'm pretty sure I would have remembered getting into the prog!

Common, you mean  ;)
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

The story and art is by a bloke called Tony Millionaire, you'll find more info on the page. But it's so damn funny! Jar Jar is such a tit his old man probably rues the day he was born!  :lol:

Love the artwork, and the lettering. I want more dammit!

'Our' Jim did co-create the Inspectre though for the Megazine, hence his 'creator' label.

We discussed that briefly in my interview with Jim about Lettering.
