Lordy! Next year Spartacock will be THIRTY YEARS OLD!
Spartacock was created way back when I was a strapping lad of 22 and Benny - yes, THAT Benny - needed an illustration for an article about cockfighting. Is that correct, Benny, was it an article about cockfighting? I think it was an article about cockfighting.
If you've ever seen Spartacus, there's a scene at the end where Kirk Douglas as the gladiator Spartacus is hanging crucified after going up against the Man. His wife goes by with some other peasants who are fleeing the oppressive regime and she shows him his son, secretively, so the Man won't kill the kid for being the son of Spartacus. Something like that. Bissette can probably remember every single word of dialog, but my brain does not retain so much detail.
Hey, look at that sissy signature! Ha ha! What a fruity artisty signature! Thank God I finally just settled on the plain block printing.
Speaking of oppressive regimes, good ol' blogger is still frustrating people's attempts to post comments on jabberous. Sorry about that folks. I have no power to improve on that ridiculous situation. All I can do is welcome you to send comments directly to me. My address is lasagnalagna at yahoo dot com.
Here's one Sculptor Rick sent via yahoo:
I'd like to add my praise for Eeteed's comic. I enjoyed The Henbanes. It has a real charm. Thanks for sharing your comic.
Oh and about the google searching, watch out if you type in "cream pie". I found that out when I was doing some research for a Fairly Odd Parents piece. Of course the results are determined by the preference settings you set in Google.
