Well, well, well, well, well, see what my mind imagined!
Someone at work said women are weak. He arrived at this conclusion based on the fact that “women are scared of rats and roaches”. Brilliant, huh?
A colleague of mine said she was going to bring a lizard to prank him to see if he would scream. Haha! She said she was going to bring a fucking lizard to work!
As the enabler that I am, I was like, “Do it, girl!”
In that moment, I told her we could spin a comic strip out of this. She agreed to do the pencil work while I coloured.
Eventually, stuff happened and she couldn’t draw. Another colleague of mine, Tobi (he’s going to handle the sketches henceforth. Hopefully… ), penciled away.
Here goes Issue One of Mishaps of Les and Dee.
P.S. I imagined the Kunle character was going to get stabbed in the eyes by a fork. And this got him worked up to the point he fell off the balcony, only to fall into a chain saw belonging to the carpenter that worked at the ground floor. Yes, his body was meant to be cut into two with his entrails spilling out for the world to see. But Tobi thought it was too gory and he had to “tone it down” to this. I had titled it “Eye Saw”, but here we are with “Good Gored”.
P.P.S. This is going to be a serial something. Here’s a peek into the next issue: A hot detective pops into the picture and one of the women acts strange.
P.P.P.S. Tobi and I have agreed to make this bi-monthly. Like, there is so much work to do at work. MOLD is something we do at our leisure. But #AdventuresOfShade remains a weekly thing… or so. (Sighs) I should find time for this.
