CHUGA CHUGA CHUGA

Recently, while unpacking all the boxes that have been in storage for a while, I found this little gem…

This A5 copy of Circular Field holds a very special place in my heart, not only because it marks my first meeting with Philip Bond and Alan Martin, but because I just love the comic… to me, it’s one of the most perfect things that I have the pleasure of owning.

But the reason I’m posting it, is because as you can see on this page, there’s a washing machine… That washing machine wasn’t in the original comic… I requested Phil draw it for me… because his first Wired World strip in Deadline magazine featured, what I thought were, some very nicely drawn washing machines. Anyway, it feels like we’ve come full circle in some strange ‘Circular Field’ kind of way, because washing machines play a very important part in The Nao of Brown.

It’s a pretty well worn copy and as you can see they both scrawled some stuff on it as well as the nice drawing… but I imagine it’s a pretty rare thing. I googled it and couldn’t find any reference to it anywhere…

Anyway here it is in full… I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
