Comicbook Submission---Brabbles & Boggitt Part I

By Karl @cartoonistdiary
Comicbook Submission---Brabbles & Boggitt Part IAnd so we start another blog post series of work being submitted.
This time I wont be sending off to the big five US syndicates, this time the art is going to a plethora of comic publishers, magazines and the French/Dutch/Belgian market.
Brabbles & Boggitt, for those of a long memory and who can remember the graphic novel I serialised on here a couple of years back, are two little travellers who roam through the land of Once Upon a Time, retelling and reliving the old fairy tales and folklore stories but with a modern day twist.
Brabbles is a ridiculously over confident yellow mouse who can only see his way. He has a million and one get rich quick schemes, all of which fail spectacularly and result in their removal from town while being covered in tar and feathers. Boggitt, the doom and gloom caterpillar is his traveling companion. It is his job to keep Brabbles on the straight and narrow and to curtail his get rich quick schemes to a minimum. Niether of which he manages with anything approaching aplomb. His next best bet is to go along with his schemes and try an minimalise the damage, which he manages, but not enough to avoid their outward journey covered in tar and feathers.
The tale I will be sending out is titled the Blue Elves and the Shoemakers; a tale about a break away splinter group of Elves who are trying to fund their hostile take over of the King of the Mountain Elves monopoly on the Porridge mines. To do this they get every new traveler to open up a cobblers' shop which they run from the back and take a large portion of the profits.
The Blue Elves and the Shoemakers is a tale of sweat-shops, pressure groups, hostile takeovers and big business at its grubby worst. All my tales are cautionary and aimed to highlight the stupidity of mans inhumanity to man; but done through the medium of an over confident yellow mouse and his doom and gloom traveling buddy.
Part one today; come back next Friday and every Friday after for eight whole weeks.
