Three cheers for this - one of the new Providence Comics Consortium books! The people of Tiverton, Rhode Island invented these characters, which I got to draw for the centerfold. Luckily the top drawing printed beautifully on Walker’s Riso, but I also did the bottom drawing as a less dense back-up version that I still really like.

WHO ARE THEY?!

Zombie singer

George Washington apple

Refrigerator that can throw blobs

Pet monkey in a dress that is really a mushroom

Ogre whose weakness is chocolate

UFO made of carrots
