You guessed it!
Yes, as most of you realised, yesterday's post about the new edible comic Om-Nom-Nom was an April Fool! The comic that was to star Eddie Bull and Noisy Rooster was, as indicated, nothing but a cock and bull story and the cover was something I threw together in Photoshop using some excellent fonts I purchased from those kings of calligraphy at Comicraft. Sorry about the deception, but I hope you had a smile over it. My thanks to those of you who joined in with the fun.
I wasn't the only one indulging in pixilated pranks. Over on George Shier's blog Wacky Comics he and Harry Rickard put together a tale about long-lost 1960s comic Fighter, complete with fake covers. Don't ya wish that comic had existed?
Harry Rickard also posted an April Fool on his Wizzo Comic website to announce the closure of his small press comic. There were a number of other comic sites having a jape too, as Bleeding Cool reports and Terry Hooper's blog announced a new IPC comic Countdown to Action.
I previously posted an April Fool on my blog back in 2008 when I featured Apollo comic. I'll probably give it a miss from now on otherwise I'll start coming across like some office prankster that people want throw through a window.Normal service is now resumed.
