Have A Laugh!

As literally everyone should know by now, back in 2002 when I had space to fill, I created a comic strip for my SCA newsletter “The Equinox”. I expected that single panel to be my last, but to my everlasting amazement it proved to be very popular. I got so many ideas given to me for other strips that I finally had to print multiple comics in each issue of the newsletter just to keep the jokes from losing their punch, especially those relying upon fun being poked at recent foibles.

The strips are still being created and published, and I choose to believe that I’ve made improvements over the past 10+ 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 amusement. I hope you agree.

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 been silly enough to think that I possess the kind of artistic talent that will be remembered, but I do enjoy the challenges and the fun of creating the strips! Below, therefore, are some selections from the Eleventh Year (2012), and I hope you enjoy them.

Having almost reached the present, once I print a selection from the first half of 2013 in my next Comics BLOG I’ll after that be blogging about the comics only once a month, and posting the current batch! Some may see that as a loss, while others may heave a huge sigh of relief, but that is my plan!
