Weekly Strip #35 - The Amazing Spider-Monkey in 'With More Great Power'

I'm cheating a bit this week by using an old strip, written and drawn in 2004, but it's a strip that is not currently - and never has been - on any of my own websites or blogs and has never been printed in a comic before, so most people won't have seen it.  The main reason I have never bothered putting this strip on any of my websites before now is because this is a strip that I hated by the time I finished drawing it.  Looking at it today, though, for the first time in years, I didn't think it was that bad.  I have changed the lettering font I originally used, self-censored some of the swearing, and have missed out an unnecessary caption on the last panel - which only made the ending worse - and those small changes have made quite a difference to the way I feel about this story.  Not much I can do about the hurried artwork now, though.

Weekly Strip #29 - The (Premium Rate) Number of the Beast

This strip may have worked better if Janet Devlin hadn't been voted off of the X-Factor last night!
