The very first GOING BATTTY comic featuring Merlin the bat and Doc the Mad Scientist. Ironically I created this comic on Halloween in 1995.... it was a Tuesday I believe. I was trying to design a bat puppet for a mad scientist costume ( for the next year not that day ) that could sit on a fake arm with your real arm sticking thru the lab coat to work the bat puppet. After drawing it on some cardboard I realized this would be a cool comic strip character. Later that day I came up with the rest of the cast.... except for Buttercup the lab assistant ... he came later.
This is the last GOING BATTY comic strip to ever appear.... it won't be the last ever, just the last one at the moment. 24 years in between the two. I've given it a more of a Steampunk look also.
