Making a long story short — AGAIN — I created a comic strip for my SCA newsletter “The Equinox” back in 2002, and it was an unexpected hit. As a result, I got so many suggestions for strips that I had to print multiple strips in each issue to avoid having the jokes become antiques before they could be printed.
The strips are still being produced and published, and I like to think that I’ve made improvements over the years, managing to better capture the likenesses of the folk around me who serve as inspiration, and of the pop culture characters I’ve tried to portray just for fun. I hope you agree, since I’m going to continue sharing these images for a while — at least until I reach the present date!
The comics continue to be archived at http://www.covingtoncastle.com/solhaven/sscom.htm for anyone wanting to check them out, and I do allow them to be reprinted in other SCA newsletters if the local Chroniclers contact me for permission.
I’ve never fooled myself that I have the sort of artistic talent that will influence the art world for centuries to come, but I do enjoy creating the strips! Below, therefore, are some selections from the Seventh Year (2008), and I hope you enjoy them.
