Childhood comics: Miscellaneous weird stuff

James / August 21st, 2011

This first comic here was from about age 15. I was obsessed with reading Michael Crichton novels. In “Eaters of the Dead” there was a passage about mead that caught my attention. It was the first time I ever heard of such a thing, a drink that makes the world spin. So I had to illustrate it.

This next one, I can’t explain. (Age 8-9)

Nor this one, but it clearly seems to be a bug with a beard. (Age unknown)

This was a Christmas comic printed for the school newspaper. (Age 11)

A very bloody comic. (age 14)

    I think that second one reminds me of the end of O Brother, Where Art Thou!

    I have to say that the last one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I literally laughed out loud after reading it.

    The “Green Hogs”… reminds me of our “Green Pigs” team that took on the “Big Guys” back in school!

    And if that mooing creature on the roof doesn’t cause instant insomnia for that person, perhaps the back-and-forth bickering between the “Dookie Gremlins” and the “Red Hogs” might!

    Maybe you heard the term “bugbear” but you somehow imagined it as “bugbeard” and drew a bug with a beard. And maybe you heard the term “wirry-cow” and drew that as an actual cow.

    The second one looks like a wolf mooing…but it says “Green Hogs” right at the bottom. So is it a cow, a wolf or a hog? If it was a hog, why would it be green? hahahah. I typed in “Green Hogs” on Google. The first result was a pork processing plant. These are really great James!

    Mead is such a wonderful drink. The world does indeed spin after a couple glasses!

    Laughed the most with the cow and the guy in bed. Really, how are you supposed to explain that? XD

    The second one seems very “The Far Side” influenced.
