Ramollo and The Ice Baby

Sunday, April 15th, 2012


Here’s the next Ramollo story, a seven-pager written and drawn in the Autumn of 1994. In February 1995 I drew a related image to use as a cover. The story was published in a reformatted layout in the UK magazine Scenes From The Inside.

The original artwork is A4 size. The inking was done by overlaying Permatrace over the pencil drawings. I’ve left some of the sellotape impressions in my scans.

In this story Ramollo is part dog and part human, mutating in his rage into a multi-eyed monster at the end of the tale. The last story ended on an upbeat note for him and the Illegal Batman, but by this time a shadow has fallen between them. Through digging in the snow, Ramollo finds and befriends a mysterious creature which, he is convinced, communicates to him wordlessly by means of flashing information into his brain. I have to say this is one of my favourite stories and one that I am proud of having created.

Ramollo reads his mail

Monday, April 2nd, 2012


Starting today I’m going to try and scan all the Ramollo stories I’ve drawn, starting with his first appearance in Desperate Failure comics. Ramollo’s story became a convenient way for me to draw more of Illegal Batman, as he became a significant other character in the Ramollo “cycle”. The cover of Desperate Failure can be seen here.

First five pages of ‘Ramollo’s Talents’ scanned today. Check back later for some more.
