Der Schrumpelplanet

(in German)


This is a re-telling/re-imagining of the very first comic I made, The Shrinking Planet. Considering that this was made at the peak of my abilities shows clearly why a career as comic creator was out of the question. Although the basic story idea is not much worse than a lot of other material I was exposed to in the early 1980s, the stuff that happens is pretty un-scientific.

Opposed to the mentioned original version of this the two main characters are a bit more developed. Especially Max Pilz, who was based on an action figure I had fished out of the trash somewhere. Fred Fretless, on the other hand, goes way back to my teen years and was probably inspired by the animated version of inspector Clouseau.
