Mystery Incorporated UK chronicles the adventures of four (British) young adults who solve mysteries for profit and pleasure. To those who are new, please read from the bottom (clicking 'Older Posts' ) in order to start at the beginning.

Be warned: MI_UK contains frequent strong language and occasional violence and sexual references. And sarcasm. Lots of sarcasm. It may not be suitable for those under the age of fourteen. Updated Fridays (on t'other site).

And Lo

So here's that other project I promised while the buffer regenerates. It's something I wrote and Robyn drew for a Vintage (as in the publishers) graphic short story competition, causing us to run out of MI_UKs.
Anyway, we didn't win or run up so here it is. Be warned, it's nothing like MI_UK and probably depressing and stuff.
Pages 3 and 4 will be up next Friday. After that back to MI_UK.

We're Back!

Well, for a week anyway. Next time, bar a small miracle, I'll be posting the first half of the other project that caused the buffer to run out, in order that we can get another buffer going again. Anyway, here is our underwhelming return:

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Robyn's been having photoshop (or whatever she uses) issues but I think they're sorted now. By next week I should either be able to reveal the new project or have a new MI_UK to put up.

I'm also out of filler, so I'll leave you a Sam & Max quote (since being comedy mystery solvers themselves they were a big inspiration for this strip.

Max: "Hey Sam, if it's always getting later and later, then how come it's early sometimes?"
Sam: "That's one of the great mysteries, little buddy."

More filler than Katie Price...

Sorry, Robyn's had a hell of a week so nothing new once again this time. I'm knackered from Freshers' too, and have already been set a load of work.
Here is some of that work by way of filler. A recounting (not even an anecdote - the point was the event written about was inconsequential) of me fetching some Cider, converted to the style of a fairy tale:

Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Warwicke, there lived a Scholar who sought the Elixir of Inebriation. To acquire this Elixir the Scholar had to travel far, to the Cave of the ‘Great’ Tesco; a giant, faceless entity that valued gold above all other things. Though his path was long, the Clerk was unburdened and with company so his journey was fair.
            But alas! This Tescos’ Cave (for he had many) did not contain the Elixir of the Woodpecker, which the Scholar most desired, so he must fain settle for the Elixir of the Bow. But Yea! The Elixir of the Bow was three-quarter-score phials for ten gold pieces, so the Scholar was happy.
            But fie! This happiness did not last! For the phials were heavy and this self-same Clerk resided in the village of Cry-Fielde, which lies in the corner of Warwicke furthest from The Cave of Tesco. And he was now alone, his fellowship having sought other and fewer things in the Cave, and he having consented to separate from them. And thus, the Scholar’s journey home was arduous, and caused him great pain in his arms.
            That Scholar did purchase other things that Tesco’s cave, but none were other forms of the Elixir of Inebriation.

Yeah, that's the kind of thing they've gotten us doing for now.

Unfortunatley there's no new MI_UK this week since Robyn and I have been working on another project, which I'll reveal in a couple of weeks.
Anyway, she's been drawing this other thing for all of September and the Mystery Incorporated UK buffer has finally run out.
So instead, here's a drawing I did in a bar once. It's done on the back of a pub quiz sheet. Enjoy.
