This is probably the most self gratifying comic strip I’ve ever done.
Mainly because I got to include characters from my favorite comic creator Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2, Urusei Yatsura, Inu Yasha, Maison Ikkoku). Unfortunately due to insane time restraints I couldn’t include half the things I wanted to like a crying Soun Tendo, Mousse in Duck form, Akane, the Dojo Destroyer (none of this will mean anything to you if you don’t read Ranma 1/2)and obviously some of the great background sets.
Also huge credit to Asterix creator René Goscinny who along with illustrator (and later writer) Alberto Uderzo created one of the most famous and beautifully presented examples of european comics.
The important thing to remember is the Pig and Whistle is a great landmark venue in Liverpool and should be watched carefully in case it ends up a car-park like all the neighboring buildings did.
