How Con Crud Begins!
Date: May 25, 2012
Characters: Joel Watson, Sporkman
I wasn't sure if I should actually post this or not, but I just can't stand to leave a comic strip buried. Unlike most Deleted Sporkman strips, this one only stayed deleted for a few months: I drew it in May immediately after returning from the Phoenix Comic-Con, then I stuck it in a drawer until August.
This strip is, as an aside, based on a true story (more or less) and guest stars Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue. At the convention, he really took a shine to the Sporkman puppet, as photo evidence will attest to. Were he a real boy, I imagined Sporkman himself would be less than pleased.
Also of note: just before I drew this particular comic, Sporkman also appeared in Lit Brick for some reason. So you should check that out at your convenience.
Remastered on August 11th, 2012.
