My "Last Mechanical Monster" webcomic continues to be kind of a nice background hum in my life. It's still running three days per week on GoComics.com, the web presence of big-time comics syndicator Universal Press. In fact, we just began rerunning it when the first go-round finished after more than a year.
As I did when an earlier version of "Last Mechanical Monster" concluded on my own website, at the end of the GoComics run I offered loyal readers a chance to download a papercraft version of my giant robot protagonist. Loyal reader Curtis Hoffman did, and gave me permission to share photos of his result.
|Work in progress. Don't know if the mug is a permanent addition but, as Curtis wrote, "The world runs on Dunkin'."|
|Finished. A good, clean build, very nice!|
|Curtis titled it "Dreaming Mechanical Monster dreams in the land of Godzilla."|
If you'd like to build your own giant robot (warning: giant robot not actual size), you can download the plans here. All it takes is seven sheets of cardstock, scissors and glue, and infinite patience.
Incidentally, Curtis runs a website called "Basket Case" that reviews webcomics, so I'm answering some questions for him and will add a note when he posts them.
Thanks to Curtis for showing me what Mechanical Monsters dream of.
EDITED TO ADD: Here's that interview! Thanks again, Curtis.
