As some of you may know, for the past two years I’ve written and drawn a comicstrip every month for the popular magazine National Geographic Kids. For the first 18 months or so I wrote jolly stories about individual people from history, such as Cleopatra, Nelson Mandela, Einstein, Scott of The Antarctic, that sort of thing (I have some on my webpage here).
Then in January we had a bit of a revamp and I came up with a little dude called Max the Mouse who would walk you through historical civilizations as a bit of a beleaguered tourist guide.
Here he is getting into a bit of gladitorial shenanigans…
Anyways, I was doing as bit of ego-surfing the other day and it turns out they’ve put a few of the Max strips online! Woohoo!
So here’s they are for your delectation (whatever that means):
They’re a bit chopped up from the original strips to fit the web format, but it’s great to see them on the website. Of course to see the strip proper, you’ll have to buy the mag every month! 🙂
