A Brickman Bonus

As I've previously mentioned, I'm currently putting together Brickman Returns!, a full colour comic which collects all the Brickman strips that were published in Image's Elephantmen in the USA in 2006 to 2009. 

Well, all but one strip that is. The page shown above was an old unpublished one I did in 1996 that was eventually used as a filler in Elephantmen No.14 when I was running a little late. While it was nice to see it in print at last it didn't really fit into the continuity of the rest of the series, and it repeated a punchline from another episode, so... I've made the decision to leave it out of Brickman Returns! but instead feature it here as a free bonus. Hope you like it! 

I've now practically completed Brickman Returns! and will be sending it to the printers this week. Stay tuned for more news soon!

Really looking forward to this. As a fan of your work it's criminal I haven't read a single Brickman strip yet!

Criminal eh? Don't let Brickman hear you say that! :)

Must remember to wear that helmet on my way to work in the morning then...

Yep, the humour of the sixties Batman TV show was a big influence on a lot of my work really, and Brickman is a Batman parody of course.
