My little twin homages to Bill Watterson and Ray Bradbury. This is the first strip I've actually wished was in color, but I still have a lot of learning to do before I try to get that fancy.

This looks to be a fun little strip to follow!

Thanks! That's the goal. If I can can manage it, I hope to capture a little of the feel of the old Alvin Fernald and Three Investigators books, with a heavy infusion of SF and horror and Chuck Jones-inspired humor.

Thanks very much! As I just told someone else, I'm very happy to know I'm not the only Olde Dude on here - I was a bit concerned that a comic set in '77 would alienate the vast majority of net kids today.

I knew you were an old dude when I saw the Bond and Frazetta references. Welcome.

Thanks, John! I must say, ComicFury has been a lot more welcoming than my previous comic host site was. I think I'm going to really enjoy this place. As for Frazetta, seriously, how could I resist doing a version of Twitch as the Death Dealer? Though I more wonder how many people, if any, will recognize the Elric cover parody.

I may not be an "old dude," but I appreciate the different time period. Gives a nice change of pace from everything else on the net.

@TheReview - Well, that is the hope. That it be interesting and enjoyable for all generations, that is, instead of exclusive, but it's hard to gauge because I don't know how many younger people are going to catch a "Sigmund the Sea Monster" reference. Mainly I'm just trying to write what I know, which is why a modern day gang was right out. Though I do have some vague intention of introducing a character known as "Futurekid" in the, well, future.

Not only can you draw, you can write. Very well, I might add. And the last panel---pure gold!!

Thanks! If I were to self-analyze, I'm probably a better writer than comic artist. It's hard sometimes trying to bend my output into presenting things visually rather than in walls of text, but I really want to keep KFP a *comic*, instead of a short story with occasional illustrations.

Very funny - well written. A classic build up to the hilarity.

Thanks very much! I'll probably do more of these "mini story"-style strips once I get the current "Twitch, Twitch" micro-saga wrapped up.
