Still waiting for those Mad Cows
There have been numerous comics over the years that reached the ideas stage and never progressed further for one reason or another. Odhams' sixth 'Power Comic' Spitfire, Marvel's original 1960s Starhawk, Oink spin-off It's Potty... and even my own Mad Cows from Mars!
Mad what from where? Back in 1997 I self-published the Combat Colin Summer Special 1967 (produced in '97, set 30 years earlier) and within its pages I announced that my next project would be Mad Cows from Mars, "Coming in '98 - or maybe 1999". (See the ad from that issue, reproduced above.)
Due to my professional strip work and various other commitments I never did get around to doing it, so all that exists was the published promotional artwork shown here. Maybe one day I'll find the time to develop it further. What do you think?
