Shire! Shire! for January

January 17, 2020 by phicks2012

Those of you whom follow this BLOG have seen the backstory dozens of times: 1) Filler material needed for monthly SCA newsletter (The Equinox). 2)Friend supplied single comic but wouldn’t repeat the next month. 3)I got desperate and drew a comic of my own. 4)People unexpectedly loved it even though they were portrayed. 5)The rest is 17-year long history. (Short Version).

Strangely, because I still enjoy it, somehow I am still doing the comics, and because I continue to be presented with humorous inspiration this is probably going to continue. I’ve also now (much to my own amazement) started doing two other comic strips over the past few years — one called “Antelope Tracks” for my SCA Household and another called “Heraldic Proceedings” to entertain fellow SCA Heralds. There is a bit of overlap in that a few comics get used in more than one strip, but since I am the “artist” I’m pretty sure I can give myself permission to do that, right??

Antelope Tracks is published to my household Facebook “Ty Gafrewig Wen” group twice a month on the 1st and 15th of every month, and quarterly in our Household Newsletter “The White Antelope” (a heraldic antelope being the primary charge on my SCA device or “coat of arms”). “Heraldic Proceedings” is published monthly to the Heraldrydiculous group (also on Facebook). In any case, I can only hope that all three will continue to earn the approval of readers and followers, because they’re stuck with seeing them. 😉

What follows are the Shire! Shire! strips included in the January Issue of The Equinox, and I hope some may enjoy them.
