Flashback Friday: "The Bat Brothers," Comic I Made When I Was Five Years-Old
This story involved holiday themes, but was still an enjoyable read anytime of the year. It had little allusions to other famous comics but featured original protagonists and villains. I called it, “The Bat Brothers,” and it is quite possibly my finest comic-work.
“The Bat Brothers,” sat in a drawer in one of my old desks for decades until I dug-it out on our most recent trip to Cortland to visit my parents and sister. Instead of leaving it in there for eternity I thought it might be fun to share this old story I made as it is kind kind of fun to peer-back at my random ideas when I was a youth. We all have creativity inside whether we are five or a lot older (I am so old now), and this little comic I made shows that. Now I wonder if I could get an artist to work with me and make a new version of this comic with some updated plotting and art, or possibly we could do a follow-up book about that darned penguin named Penguin—what is his deal?
