Popeye and olive oil

popeyeoliveoil001This is my Metro comic from April — you can click on this to make it bigger! I keep on seeing the man when I go to the Pt Chev shops and I wonder if I should tell him that I immortalised him in the comic. He would probably look confused because we didn’t really drink beer together, and nor did Madeline and her class mates turn up to slide in the spilt olive oil. I’m posting this because the latest Metro magazine is out if you care to buy it.

Thank you so much to the people who ordered my comics! Please let me know if there are any of you who want some as I’m getting more sent over from Australia. They are only $6 each! (plus postage). They would make great…er….gifts!

And in more random news, last night I read Luke Pearson’s Hilda and the Midnight Giant and it was so great. The colours and line work are exquisite, reminiscent of Tove Jansson, and the story is effortlessly magical, working within its own logic without any clunky explanation. I wish I could draw and colour like that!

    Love the Madeleine reference sneaking in to the last frame. Smiles on a cold Christchurch morning thanks.

    Yes! I love that Madeleine pops up at the end too! Fantastic!
