Dromie's still got it!

(That is, the capacity for bare-knuckle violence.)

I wish I'd grown up reading something more along the lines of Asterix, with all of its incredible fight scenes (every kind of swinging motion is represented by these long smears that are clean enough to let off a CLIP sound as you read). I could've been drawing fight scenes like that for years if I'd been able to get my hands on them, and would probably be able to give you an authentic school hallway brawl. But you get Dromie punching aimlessly in the air before being kicked in the head, and it takes six panels. I'm sorry, that's how life is, yknow?

To be fair though, I collected The Beano near-obsessively for a good three-or-so years from when I was eight, and that had a fair bit of punching (if anyone wants/cares to know, Ratz was my baby). And, to be fair x2, I love that as an eight year-old, I was already being unknowingly corrupted by people who were (are?) in the UK underground comix movement. All hail!

Otherwise, keep up-to-date via my Instagram.

Fight, fight, fight! Get his ass, Dromie >:O (And for what its worth, I think your panels here read well! Perhaps some of your long time inspirations have left their mark more than you know hehe!)

Realtalk tho thats super cool that you got into all this stuff so young! Especially the underground comics- I'm just finding all this stuff pretty recently, its so cool that there's this big world of it all going on for so long! So exciting :D

OH MAN, there's so much amazing material out there! It was mad seeing all of these illustrators and cartoonists I loved as a kid that had/have careers doing underground and mature(?) work. Like, I just knew Dave McKean for his illustrations for Varjak Paw, and YIKES, that was only scratching the surface! Get 'em young :'D What are you reading yerself?

(Also thank you for the kind words, got excited by your mentioning underground comics!)
