Shire! Shire! for February


February 20, 2018 by phicks2012

Those of you who follow my BLOG may (or may not) recall that I am the Eternal Chronicler for the SCA Shire of Sol Haven. I do the monthly newsletter, and have done so since 1989 — so “eternal” is not necessarily a total over-statement of fact. šŸ˜‰ In any case, back in 2002 when I found myself with an empty half-page, a friend supplied the answer by drawing a comic making fun of another actual Shire member.

I tried to get her to draw another one for the following issue, but nope. She shot me down, so in mild retalliation I created one making fun of HER. That was the beginning of Shire! Shire! People started coming to me and saying things like “You should draw one of me, and have me doing <whatever foolish thing came to mind>”. I was given so many similar ideas that within a few years I was up to drawing 4 strips per issue.

Well, it’s now 2018 and many MANY comic strips later, but they are still coming, and somehow people seem still to be enjoying them. So, with that in mind, the following are the comics published in the February issue of The Equinox, for the SCA Shire of Sol Haven — and fair warning to our various entertaining Shire Newcomers: “You are probably being DRAWN!”

    For those of you interested, the monsters started appearing because we had a Shire member who was literally nice to ANYBODY. The ghosts began appearing in tribute to Shire members (and friends) who have passed on, but not been forgotten.
