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. To my own amazement, it’s still going all these years later. I would never have believed it. In fact, I sometimes fail to realize just how long I’ve been doing the strip, unless I look back at the archives and realize that it has in fact been 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 often wildly 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 on in our memories. The “moviemonsters” 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.
