King of the B-Movies (part two)

I'm almost ashamed to think about the long list of artists and writers I swiped from in the course of a decade's worth of King of the B-Movies. (See if you can spot the self-portrait!)

In retrospect I'm amused to see that I managed to string some bits of continuity over a couple of years' worth of issues.

Somehow, after that the magic just wasn't there. The completely dismantled pages appeared more frequently. I'd broken it. It took a few years before the final Easter Egg Parade brought the curtain down on the whole thing. It was self-indulgent fun for a while but all things come to an end.

Did you draw all that? Was it ever published? It's quite Robert Crumb-esque.

dinahmow: some of the other pages put people off Shredded Wheat

Gadjo: I did; thank you; and I wish I were half as good as him
