Ah, if there’s one thing worse than suddenly finding your old guitar, it’s realising that you don’t really remember how to play much on it.

Well, this cartoon ended up being a bit more political than I expected. Originally, it was going to be just another cynical comic about how old FPS games are better than new ones. But, then I remembered this Eurogamer article I read a while ago about how some modern games companies pay large licencing fees to arms companies in order to include their guns in their games (it’s like a strange form of inverted product placement).

To get a little bit more political, I believe that this kind of stuff is only really a problem for gamers over the pond in America. Given that, in many other parts of the world (including the UK, if not especially the UK) game companies can advertise real guns as much as they want but people thankfully can’t usually actually buy them.

Still, it’s yet another reason why FPS games should return to the good old days of including a vast array of interesting, cool-looking and most importantly very much imaginary weapons.

I also made some visual edits to this cartoon after I’d scanned it. In most of the series so far, I’ve had to edit the dialogue for quality/flow reasons, but this is one of the most major visual changes. Basically, I removed a large dramatic-looking mushroom cloud from the last panel, since it accidentally made the accompanying dialogue imply that nuclear war was “cool”. Which it isn’t.

Yes, I know, this is quite literally the oldest joke in the book. Still, it amused me enough to make me want to turn it into a comic.

Woo hoo! My old “Damania” webcomic returns with all new episodes for yet another mini series. You can catch up on the previous two mini series here and here.

This comic suddenly came into being when I realised that Roz’s favourite TV show is almost certainly a certain well-known long-running series that debunks myths (through a series of dangerous-looking, and sometimes fiery, experiments) on a regular basis. And, well, I just had to make a parody comic about this.

Have you ever wondered what happens to detectives once all of the criminals have been caught? Well, now you know.

If you want to see Harvey working an actual case – then he does this in both this comic and (sort of) in this one too.

And, yes, I felt like starting the new mini series with a cynical comic about censorship in American TV shows. Because, why not? Don’t get me wrong, I love US TV shows but some of them [the non-HBO shows anyway] are censored in hilariously inconsistent ways (eg: they can be as gruesome as they want to be, but god forbid that any character utters the word “bullshit” etc…).

And, yes, in case it isn’t noticeable, I digitally reduced the amount of blood in the third panel of this comic (compared to my original painting/comic). This was mainly because, with blood in artwork, less is often more. Not to mention that, over the past few years, I’ve had a bizarre reluctance to make my artwork too gruesome.

The Complete “The Charity Case: A Harvey Delford Mystery” – The New Film Noir Parody Comic By C. A. Brown

2016 Artwork The Complete Charity Case

Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d post the whole of “The Charity Case: A Harvey Delford Mystery” in one easy-to-read post.

Believe it or not, I made this entire comic in just two days (even though I posted it here over the space of a week or so). Anyway, this is a film noir parody comic starring Harvey Delford from my “Damania” comics series ( you can catch up on other recent comics in this series here, here, here and here).

This comic was a lot of fun to make, if somewhat exhausting during the final two pages. Still, for something I made in two days, I’m quite proud of how it turned out.
