The end!  Of the scribbles, anyway.  This is the back cover, which I have decided to make into a sort of mini poster, with a psuedo scientific “illustration” of a brontosaurus, and the story of the comic in old fashioned … Continue reading

minicomics ??, post 22: a drawing of josef and anpu

minicomics ??, post 19: a special double sized scribble
