after a long break, i've started working on *bodkin and the bear* again, my strip from the DFC.
whilst various DFC strips are reportedly being made into books, plays, tv shows, hollywood movies (i may have made up that last one), *b&b* seems to be the unwanted runt of the pack.
i suppose it didn't really have a very long run before the comic folded, perhaps not enough to really get a good foothold.
however, having re-read what i've done so far, my enthusiasm for the project has been reinvigorated, and i'm determined not to leave it unfinished, dangling for eternity. so i have resumed work, on the script, to begin with -- i've decided to write the whole of the rest of the story before i do any more drawing, rather than continuing to make it up as i go along (which the DFC schedule rather demanded)
when finished, it will see print -- if random house (who at this point in time still share the copyright with me) do not wish to add it to their forthcoming *DFC library*, then after a given time the full copyright will revert to me and i will self-publish and/or seek another publisher for it.
our heroes can't be left dangling forever! (a detail from one of the last pages i drew before the demise of the DFC)
