As you can see here, I joked "Zip over to my eBay page, check out what's on offer and help pay my mortgage".
Now I see that someone online actually took that seriously and amongst other nonsense about me is claiming "he regularly has to sell pages of his old art so he can pay his mortgage".
It's hard to believe that an enthusiast of comics could be so humourless, but there you go. (And if anyone thinks I'm being harsh over a misunderstanding he also said I was a "smug, obnoxious prat" and "out of touch with reality", so I won't be feeling any guilt over calling him humourless.)
Anyway, all next week I'll be outside Tescos selling chalk drawings of Combat Colin so I can buy a private yacht. You might need a fork lift to carry the slabs home though.
UPDATE 14/7/2012: I'd hoped I'd be allowed a right of reply without any further repercussions. Sadly not. On the blog where the quotes came from the webmaster has chosen to portray himself as the victim, seemingly thinking he's justified in posting more insults about me. Such as this:
"Perhaps he should stick to drawing his second-rate strips for an ever dwindling audience. For someone whose career has depended on more skilled cartoonists being too busy to draw everything, he should perhaps be a little more humble and less uptight. Let's hope he discovers women soon - perhaps then he'll relax a bit."
Now he's gotten that off his chest let's hope this is the end of it.
