'Mudwogs' by Arthur Suydamfrom Heavy Metal magazine, March 2006
In 2005 Kevin Eastman, creator of the comic strip 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and owner and publisher of Heavy Metal magazine, decided to reprint the classic 'Mudwogs' tales that Arthur Suydam had provided for HM in the early 80s.
Eastman also commissioned new Mudwogs strips from Suydam, with the first of these appearing in the March, 2006 issue.
For 'Old School' HM readers such as I, seeing the Mudwogs again was great, despite finding Suydam's distinctive artwork nestled within pages and pages of cheeseball T & A 'portfolios', advertisements for Japanese cartoon porn DVDs, and something called 'The Erotic Library of Priapism'.
Here is 'Mudwogs # 8'. Continuing installments will be posted here at the blog in the coming weeks.
