Augustine and Inertia
Augustine's paper life began in 1984 but since she is my alter ego, she's been with me forever. From 1984 to 1988 I drew, published and distributed a series of ten booklets titled: "Small Packages: The Augustine Adventures". The originals were black line only but I've since coloured them.

You like Haggis? Ugh! I find it horrible! Maybe that's because I'm not really English or Scottish but a mixture of French and Russian and a few other countries. Anyway, I enjoyed your Orkney comic even if I don't understand the words.
I'm not very knowledgeable about comics in general so I don't know the ones you mention. My own comics are only a sideline to my other artwork and among the comics I prefer are the 'alternative' ones like Marjane Satrapi, Art Spiegelman, James Thurber and a few others of this kind.
All best wishes to you

Yes, it was an excellent Day! Inspired by the good start I had a british breakfast and used a tin of Haggis, that I had saved for a special occasion for over one year, because it's impossible to get it in germany! I have a british phase since a while and read the first comics on "Judge Dredd" and Frank Bellamy's "King Arthur and his Knights" at the moment. British comics are not very well known in germany. I love "The Steel Claw"! I even think of going to London with my girlfriend, to visit the ABC show of british comicbooks at Royal National Hotel in june, to get more of that stuff. But maybe it's less fun without enough money... And it is allways a problem taking a dog to your island.
Do you know the krazybov comicbooks that are given away for free to the people of London? There was one comic published in there, that is at mycomics.de, too. It is Sebstatian Kempke's "Children of Rungholt" that also won a competition here on mycomics in may 2010.
Many years ago, I made a lot of business in Britain selling tattoo-designs and had some wonderful friends in scottland on the Islands called Eday and Skye. And I was in britain as a teenager, with a sort of "children exchange". I could write for hours about the many adventures and really love your country :D
there is a comic of me here on mycomics, that takes place on the island Eday, one of the Orkneys.

I'm very glad that you enjoyed INERTIA and even my funny singing too! I hope your day was excellent. See you later.

Your comic is very nice, i like your style and enjoyed your singing with Brain Ferry very much. It's early in the morning and you gave me a smooth start in the day, thank you ;)

Thanks, let me know if it works for you - if you have the INERTIA PROBLEM too!

many thanks for your welcome. It's good to hear that you had already met Augustine.
Now I know what to call the monster when it doesn't respond to English: Tragheit!

Welcome to myComics! I really enjoyed your Augustine comics on your website. Great to see one of them here. And I finally looked up "Inertia" - it's "Trägheit" in German.

Greetings to all,
I was invited to join this comics community by Dorothee Lang and am glad to be here. Unfortunately I don't speak German but I would be happy to have some responses to my comics so, if you can manage even a few words in English, French, Italian or Spanish, I'd appreciate it very much. I live in London U.K. and anything you want to know about me can be found on my website:
and on my blog, Blaugustine (link shown above)
