The translation of the next Mawil book is well underway and we are putting the finish to getting 30 or so of the strips ready to run, three a week, on the Forbidden Planet blog probably starting in 3 weeks time. The more I’ve read the book, now in English rather than my dodgy German, the more I have been enjoying it. It just seems so full of a kind of non-cynical, enthusiasm that you would have to be a scrooge not to enjoy. Of course to top it off Mawil is a brilliant natural cartoonist and the energy of his line really adds to the gags. I really hope that people will adore this strip and tell all their pals when it goes online, it deserves to introduce him to a wide and mixed market. Just as a little teaser here is the back cover, which acts as an introduction to Sparky and his lineage – when your new electrician comes with ancestry like that – you know it is going to be a bumpy ride. Enjoy, more strips on the FPI blog VERY soon. Then go out and buy the book to see over 50 more strips when it’s out in September – you won’t regret it.
