It was Halloween 1995... it was a Tuesday... I actually remember this. It was my last day of work at my job before I started packing up to move back to my home town at the end of the week. I was drawing an idea for a Bat Puppet that I thought would be good for a Mad Scientist costume for a later Halloween. The more I looked at it the more I thought it would make a good comic. I left work early that day and went to the Hangout we had in Decatur, MS and fleshed out the rest of the cast for the GOING BATTY comic strip about Doc, a mad scientist and his pet Bat, Merlin.
