I'm pretty sure that I drew this comic strip at least fifteen years ago. I think I drew it just for the hell of it and then did nothing with it apart from post it on-line one time, maybe. I drew the original artwork onto A2 paper which is why it is reproduced quite small below. If you zoom in a little, you should be able to read it okay. Anyway, I hope you like it.

The new issue of Viz is out today and features the full-paged return of Peter The Slow written and drawn by me. Here's the cover to watch out for in your local newsagents, petrol stations and supermarkets.

If you've read my comics There's No Time Like The Present and The Doctor Kyle Show then you might mistakenly think that I am a bigger Doctor Who fan than I actually am. I watch the new episodes when they are on and then, usually, forget about them and get on with my life. So these Max And His Weevil strips I drew must make me seem like a certified Whovian to you.
Four years ago, a friend 'in the business' suggested that I pitch a strip to Torchwood Magazine. My problem was that I had only watched two or three episodes of the first television series and had decided that it was total rubbish. My friend suggested that I draw some strips featuring 'weevils', a creature that apparently appeared regularly in the programme, and so, after some internet research, the following is what I submitted.
Seemingly, the editor was baffled by what I had sent to him and, inevitably, rejected them. Perhaps to somebody who likes Torchwood my contempt for it shines through but I still think that the strips are quire funny.
