During summer, in a Notting Hill bookshop, I found this Melbourne based comic I'd contributed to with my brother. It seems like the right time to post it now.

I'm pleased to have shaken the hand of the man who did this.... Well, part of it. Which part did you do Tony?

Great.

I'm glad you enjoyed the strip. I was primarily the artist, but Stuart (my brother) and I worked together on the writing and the art.

Thanks!

Couple of questions..
True Story?
Is there more?

Tony Thorne said...

Yes its a true story. My mother was left all the photos from her aunty's estate, which Stuart and I thought were amazing, we were in Tasmania when she died. At her funeral her life story poured out of my relatives. I'm not sure they were so happy we used many of the darker details in the strip.

Around this time I was producing strips for many publications, so yes there is loads more, although nothing as biographical as this one.

This has to be the best cover Fox ever had. Beautiful work Tone Loc.
