Not the first comic strip I ever wrote, but the first I wrote for Monkeys with Machineguns.
I was raised on a healthy diet of British TV sitcoms and there are definite influences from The Good Life and To the Manor Born was I re-read this.
Back in these days, I did all of the lettering and was pretty poor at proofreading. There's no excuse really, with so few words on the page! I used GIMP to add the lettering and wasn't very good at adding tails to my speech bubbles either. I don't think any of these things break the story though, and I still love the twist that comes at the end of this.
At some point in the past, we got around to having this one coloured and re-lettered, the results of which you can see here in a side-by-side comparison (just keep scrolling through the slideshow). I'd really like to get the entire MWM back catalogue coloured and re-lettered like this someday.
