Comedy Tonight!!!

Okay, so, as I’ve told you before, I created a comic strip for my SCA newsletter “The Equinox” back in 2002, and to my personal amazement (given that I’d never tried to draw any such thing before) it proved to be a great success, even with the actual people humorously portrayed. I got so many ideas handed to me that I had to print multiple strips in each issue of the newsletter just to keep the jokes from ossifying before they could be published. Some jokes simply do not retain their humor after a while, though fortunately others do.

The strips are still being created and published, and I prefer to think that I’ve made improvements over the past decade, 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 amusement. 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 convinced myself that I have the kind of artistic talent that will cause my work to be passed down through the centuries, but I do enjoy the challenges and sheer fun of creating the strips! Below, therefore, are some selections from the Ninth Year (2010), and I hope you enjoy them.
