From the Archive: Willie n' Twillie, 1988/2008

A distressing number of my comics begin as doodles. Here's a doodle I did in the early to mid 1980s which suggested the mannered, moralizing doggerel parody below.

Willie n' Twillie first saw print in Acme Comics #9 in 1988. Two decades later, I drew it over better and typeset the copy for True Fiction #7, 2008.
