I'm laid up with a cold so no comics today. Please, no swine flu gags. I've had them all weekend.
Tomorrow, I'll post the first part of a new strip (new to Bear Alley, anyway) which will run until the end of the week in 3 and 4 episode chunks. It's an adaptation of Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo, popularly known as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". What makes this a special treat is that it's drawn by Arthur Ranson.
Ten years before he began drawing "Anderson Psi Division" for 2000AD, during the fifteen years he worked almost exclusively for Look-In, Arthur drew a black & white adaptation of Hugo's famous novel for Look and Learn. The strip hasn't been seen since and I doubt if many fans of Arthur's work are even aware of it.
Drop by tomorrow for the first four episodes. Meanwhile, here's a taste of what's in store...
