Shire! Shire! for May

I created this strip to fill empty space in The Equinox, the monthly newsletter for the SCA Shire of Sol Haven, back in January of 2002. WOW! Somehow, it’s still going all these years later. Who’d have believed it!!? I wouldn’t! In fact, I sometimes misjudge how long I’ve been doing the strip, unless I look back at the archives and realize that it was in fact 2002! Sixteen Years!

For clarification, most of the characters in the strip are real people, but in their SCA personas and with their quirks and personalities exaggerated. Characters shown with auras are mostly (except for Alicia who is supposedly visiting astrally from the Kingdom of the Outlands) former members of our Shire who have passed on, but continue to live in our memories. The “movie monsters” like Bjorn Borg, Bridghe de Frankenstein, Frederick von Krueger, Jason de Voorheese, Lucifer the Fallen, Vlad da Kool, Screame, and Wulf de Lobo were first incorporated as a joke years ago because we had a Lady in our Shire who was literally nice to ANYbody, and have persisted simply to supply variety.

So here I offer more in the on-going comic cycle, published in the May 2018 issue of The Equinox, included here for your hopeful entertainment.
