Coupledom Contribution

So everyone must know who Andy Waugh is by now right? He's the one who did that small press comic called Melanchomic that was really funny, witty, poignant, slice-of-life and loved by all. So much so in fact that he's been able to consistently sell copies of it for what seems like decades without having to offer a follow up, while me and Gary Bainbridge have piles of Rusty Nail and Clean Living In Talsatia growing strange fungi in abandoned corners of our homes and spend most of our waking life tearing hair out wondering what the hell everybody wants from us.

Anyway, a couple of months ago I found out that Andy has indeed been cooking up a new comic entitled "Coupledom" which he'd better hope is as good as his usual standard of comic because psychos like me will have a thing or two to say about it after he's made us wait this long. Anyway, upon hearing this news at one of the Paper Jam meetings, I proceeded to tenuously link the theme of our 24-Minute Comic (Smooth + Monkey's Bottom) to a faux-advertisement for the then mysterious and unnamed project, which Andy took a liking to despite it being a bit offensive.

He then astonishingly asked if he could include it in the project, and I told him "No fucking way! It's shit!" but did offer to do a cleaner version later that he could use, if I didn't regret the whole idea after about 24 Hours. So after months of procrastination, I set pen to paper today because I heard he was coming upon the final stages of creation. And here's the page:

This is ace Jack - really looking forward to the comic (just to add a bit more pressure Andy!)
