As a comic fan it was only natural to use my favourite characters in humorous situations.
This was originally done as a couple of sketches and posted on an internet forum. I got positive feedback and ended up doing a whole series of them. I managed to link them together into a semi-coherent narrative although some of the sketches work well as stand alone.
I decided to publish these on the Amazon Kindle and got Werner to add some illustrations; and he did a great job.
The cover features 2 new characters, Mrs Galactus and Mrs Darkseid, and were part inspired by the fabulous British comedian, the late Les Dawson, in one of his most famous creations; Cissie and Ada.
Here's a selection of illustrations from the book:
