Announcing:

Posted Image

After the close of the smackdown between me and Sinner, I decided to preview my new comic, The Many Adventures of the Whacker and the Walrus, in addition to Sinner and me you may find some other firendly Eurobricks faces. I have asked for permission from everyone I used. For those who I asked who don't see themselves in the comic, never fear, your characters shall pop in eventually.

When I return from vacation I shall clean the comic up a bit. I don't like the introduction page. The design was thrown together at the last minute as I'm running out of time before we have to leave. I also hope to finish up the first issue in time to debut it on my site with episode 13 of Fabuland Housewives. The comic should be easier to follow as it's shorter and has a more simple plot. For those of you keeping score, I am pushing The Book of the Ancients back yet again.

Anyway read and enjoy a Eurobricks exclusive preview of The Many Adventures of the Whacker and the Walrus...

I just love the comic Hinckley  *wub*
It looks 100% professional. Good story, nice clear pictures.
But most of all, I love the world you've created for this story.
An excellent way for me to start the day.
I'm looking forward in anticipation for part II.

POTENTIAL SPOILER ZONE! GO READ THE COMIC FIRST, YOU'LL THANK ME!

I'm only just starting it, but the first shot forces me to comment immediately.

It's like a classic movie. Abbott and Costello!  *y*  *y*  *y*

That first shot is pure setup. You automatically know what's coming. There they are, each holding an implement of whackitude, surrounded by even more of them. What will happen? Ha! You know what will happen. Read their lines. Conflict! Conflict and blunt weapons! Pure win.

In this scenario, I'm picturing Hinkley playing the part of Bud Abbott. Bud was always the smart guy, the fast talker, the man with the plan, the one who knew just how to push Costello's buttons to get the right reaction. Ironically, in this comedy team Bud was the straight man  8-° (come on, admit it, it's a good joke).

And Sinner? Obviously Lou Costello.  What can you say about Lou? Loveable, looney, more than a little lost without Bud, the perfect patsy. Sure to get himself in troubling and difficult, even dangerous situations.

Together, they comprised a team of sheer brilliance. Until the IRS (tax man to the rest of you) got them. Well, you guys should have a few good years before you get busted.

Oh man, I just finished the page while collecting my further thoughts and now I'm even more convinced. A potential love interest for Lou Sinner! One that immediately spurns his affections. Classic comedy setup!

The ending? Perfect! In that trash bin, you know that Abbott Hinkley is plotting! Oh yes, he'll be back and he'll show that Sinner who's in charge? But who is in charge when it's all said and done?

Just wait and see!

Hilarity On!

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Really nice X-D  I have a few observations...

1. I want that hammer *wub*
2. I want that rake *wub*
3. In the scene where you first whack Sinner, the light makes his eyes look scrunched.  Was that intentional?  It took me a few minutes to realize it was the light, and that you didn't paint the eyes or edit them in photoshop  8-|

Fantastic! *sweet* I can't wait to see next part! It's just hilarious.. Everything is perfect. :'-)  *y*

In the scene where Copmike speaks Swedish, I think you've done a mistake; He says "Tjaba, läget?", isn't it supposed to be "Tjäna, läget"? I know I'm not Swedish, but I've been alot in Sweden and never heard anyone greet me with "tjaba".. *wacko*

This was hilarious, Hinckley. :-D  I laughed out loud while I read the first page. (the second page was funny too, but I'd recollected myself.)

I love the character you've given to the... uh, characters. Especially that you're quick to fight, but as soon as they start fighting back, you complain. :-P

Very well done. I look forward to more! X-D

I will keep my eye out for rakes and hammers and if you're a good Timmy-faced-knight, maybe Santa will bring them to you. ;-)

Thanks SW4J and are you referring to this pic?

Yeah, I'm just like that in real life too :-D  :-D  :-D Hopefully you're uncollected for pages 3 & 4!

Thanks again everybody for the nice compliments and I hope you enjoy the conclusion of issue 1. I am leaving for vacation in 4 hours so I shall take a nap. I will check in so you guys probably won't even realize I was gone! :-P I will try to get an issue out every two weeks. This is an easier story to write than my other ones. And much more fun! :-P

The drama, the emotion, the raw power of conflict, subtle humour, in your face humour, slapstick comedy, innuendo, puns and wordplay, appropriate scenery that adds to the atmosphere but doesn't distract from the story line. Add a dream sequence and some mystery and it's got everything I look for in a show (I can't help but think of it as a show for some reason).

Oh, and fascinating parts I haven't seen before (I've already put the rake on my Brickshelf wanted list, but that hammer isn't available anywhere).

I must confess to a deep dark secret. A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away I read the first issue of Fabuland Housewives and loved it. Always wished they were available in a PDF with the captions built in for offline viewing.

Point is though, after reading it, I had a disturbing urge to buy a Fabuland shovel, which I did in my next parts order. Later I picked up a pile of yellow brooms. I was thrilled to find one of the axes used in Jabba's Palace and bought more for other guards. I can't even imagine why they don't reissue that hammer as a Castle weapon, it would be perfect with the current line.

Hi, my name is Imperial Shadows and I am a Fabuland Accessory Junkie. *wub*

Stop staring at me people.  :-$

Great cliffhanger Hinkley, can't wait for the next exciting episode!

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

"Tjaba" is a Swedish slang word for "hej", in english "hi". What´s the matter UB - don´t you trust copmike, the swedish translator >:-)?
