Kevin's been cleaning out the studio flat-file this week. He's uncovered a goldmine of old sketches, doodles, and pre-Interrobang comics. Back in the day, Kevin headed "Severed Limb Studios." They put out a number of paper-style comic books, and had a whole gallery of characters and features. Dark Intruder, Smart Girl, A Girl Named Bob, Punker Darren, and the Trigger Star crew all had their very first appearances in those old books. There were other features that have not continued here at Interrobang,including the long-lost "Martha Stewart & Vlad the Impaler Gardening Special."
He uncovered scripts from a cannibalism episode a host of others which have held up very well over the years. Perhaps we will share some--with permission of the original author, of course.
In other, more festive news, the studio staff decked our holiday shrubbery this evening. We have a teeny-tiny artificial Christmas tree from the early 1990's--the kind of thing that gives Charlie Brown's evergreen an ego-boost. Since there are four cats in the house, setting it up is a futile hope at best. Most of them could take the tree in a fair fight (or at least two out of three falls). To save on broken ornaments, puked pine needles, and a Sisyphussian cycle of righting the tree on a 2 minute interval, we lashed the base of our nineteen-inch, artificial tree upside-down to a beam in the loft. I imagine that people with children do similar things.
