Not to belabor a point, but back in 2006 when I had space to fill in my SCA Newsletter, The Equinox, I tried my hand at drawing a comic strip that poked good-natured fun at some actual people in their SCA personas. Somehow, no one was offended, they kept giving me ideas and providing comedic inspiration, and the strip is still going these many yeats later.
In fact, I’m proud to say that Shire! Shire! recently won a William Blackfox award for A.S. XLVIII’s “Best Regular Feature” in an SCA newsletter. For those not cognizant of Scadian temporal configurations, the SCA Calendar began on May 1st 1966 (the date of The First Tournament), causing the Scadian New Year to fall on May 1st of every year, As a result A.S. XLVIII ran from May 1st 2013 to April 30th, 2014.
The Comics below were published in the November (A.S. XLIX (2014) Issue of The Equinox, and I hope you enjoy them!
