Love his work. His Muppets comic for Boom! was awesome.

He does wonderful experimental stuff with the comics form, which you don't see much nowadays.

Everybody's favourite "naughty auntie" Knuckles the Malevolent Nun returns to challenge the status quo, molest farm animals and show you her rosary.

 

Wonderfully demented artist.

Not that I was aware of*, but I do see that Dylan Horricks was his collaborator on some projects, and I know that he is a kiwi, so maybe you got them mixed up?. The warped sense of humour in the Nun stories could very well suit being "Kiwi" humour, old school fart jokes and body issues, but then we probably got that from you guys anyway, right?. ( Not YOU you guys, but coarse common jokes from British sailors were legendary, and I imagine it really is old school, like, older than New Zealand school. )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*And we do actually tend to be overly aware, in cringing, self lauding, small island person fashion, when one of our own makes good. It has always been an annoying Kiwi trait that puts my teeth on edge, how absolutely no attention at all is paid to the thousands of us achiving small measures of credit around the globe, but just let some one attract praise from a foreign "worthy" , and sick-inducing waves of tribute lavish on them from every part of our society

It was a rhetorical question, since I know he is a Kiwi.

Wisely chose to live in West London many years ago.

Oh, I am surprised at that, he really has picked up a "Pommie" accent then, from that clip.

 

I thought I remembered Knuckles the nun from sometime when I lived in Australia, but now that I look, it was work he did here in the 80s last century* originally. I can't really remember reading it as a young fella, maybe I only saw the cover or something.

 

*When will that seem sensible to add, "Last century", rather than the tongue in cheek using it seems now?. After 2050 maybe?.
