I just love how every once in a while the newspaper actually somewhat mentions the Down's current events. Moreover in addition furethermore, I also love not current events too as well.

You mean the one about Duckbill the Koopa suing Infamous Barrow Downs Newspaper Mogul? Yeah, I am also following that case with great interest...

Don't forget that if you've lost track of The Phantom and Alien, you can look back though...


Keeping up with the Phantom and Alien is sometimes hard.
Anyway, I've been thinking about going on a short hiatus soon, not sure when. But I feel I need to cool down and get a grip on this little project. I'm not enjoying it any more and I've felt it slipping away for a long time. It's useful in some ways as a writing exercise, practice and so on, but I feel like I've lost the drive I once had.
Maybe it's because it's summer time and everyone is busy, or maybe I'm just running out of ideas. Or maybe I ran out of ideas 350 issues ago...
Anyway, I've got sketches for the next two or three in my head and more P&A of course, but eventually I think I'm going to take a short break for a few weeks. Maybe go on holiday somewhere. Hope that's okay with everyone.

Or eating spoon with a pudding, for that matter.

Holiday is nice. Everyone needs it once in a while. Otherwise you'll end up like a dried fish, yess.

We'll be still here when you are back, so, no problem

Kidding aside, ditto Oddy and Legate. You deserve a break. As for what to eat and how to eat it, you know that you could be very fancy and make a meal of aluminum-stuffed crocodile in wood shavings...

There may or may not be a newspaper next week, not sure. Probably definitely a P&A, though.

Next week there will be no paper, nor the week after. Hopefully I'll be ready to get back into it come August. Until then, I hope you're all happy! Look at what you've driven me to! : Merisu:

I have some plans in the works for some sort of revival. May take some time to put together, though.

Dear Sir and/or Madam Editor:

It has been many months past since I've endeavored to issue complaints regarding anything. I dwelt on this strange, perturbing turn of events recently, and discovered that I had, in truth, absolutely nothing to complain about. Naturally, one can imagine my umbrage at having nothing which I might find grievance with or to hurl indignant protests against. It is, I assure you, an intolerable state of affairs!

Suddenly, it came to mind that it had been several months since I had read your disreputable rag The Downer, and that my current egregious state of lack of complaints was directly caused by the disruption of your atrocious paper!

Therefore, I demand that you continue publication of your dreadful, grammatically-impaired, pun-ridden pile of pusillanimous pulp posthaste so that I may continue complaining in a manner that befits my God-given right to express displeasure whenever, wherever and to whomever I so choose.

Thank you in advance for your prompt return to lunacy.

With regard,
Ms. Helena Handbasket
Cheshire-on-Crackers, Wiltsingtonthorpeshireset, Belchley

Re: Ms. Helena Handbasket:

I applaud the trouble you went through to write to this newspaper. As a loyal reader myself, it grieves me to see that I too have nothing to complain about. Where has that mad old editor gone off to? Fiddlesticks and chips, I demand a resurgence of this newspaper so I have something to rip up to put in my cat litter boxes.

Sincerely,
Nobelia Ackville Gabbns

I have been a reader of this paper since year two of its existence, and I am fully glad that it is back. Even if we don't get the Downer forever, I still celebrate its ability to make me laugh. Kudos, Hook. You have flashed me back to my teenage years in the most pleasant of ways with your groan-inducing humour.

I was interviewed by The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Network and I felt I had to mention this website and this newspaper. Take a look-see, people!

I had a dream either last night or the night before that Hookbill had posted a new P and A on his facebook and had linked to another newspaper he wrote on this thread. I miss the glory days of the Downer sometimes. We had fun.

Well, we have Hook's books now - can't expect to have our toast buttered on both sides, I suppose. Still, you're right, I sometimes miss all the glorious random silliness... Especially Fungoltch unt Shcmurkt! Funadalkn? Gimifril!

I have read The Sea-Stone Sword, but I haven't had the chance to buy his other books, but I've been an avid reader of his for years o'course! All the same, Fungotch unt Shcmurkt is probably my best memory of this thread's heyday.


Glorious random silliness is best served hot and buttered.

I've got ideas for doing something with the Phantom and Alien someday. Not sure what, exactly. A comic book of some sort, or maybe a children's book (heavily edited, obviously). Not sure. But one day...

Huh. That's so funny. I was talking about your books with my mom a few weeks ago and she suggested the same thing. She said that because it's comics, you may be able to make some money off of it.

Alternatively he will have to seduce a high ranking civilservant, so that he books may be found at every library across the land!

Thumbs up

Well, Phantom and Alien fans, there may be a future in store after all!

My publishers, Grimbold Books, asked me and my brother to make a comic strip for their Patreon page and so, naturally, I thought of The Phantom and Alien. Now, they wanted it to star their company mascots, two cats called Grim and Bold. But, to all intents and purposes, they will actually be The Phantom and Alien.



The episodes will go up for free for everyone beginning in September, but you can see them all first in August HERE if you're interest.

There's also been talk of a printed graphic novel style book of comics as soon as we've got enough!

I'll make sure to put in lots of Barrow Downs references, don't worry.

Cool! That'll give me something to procrastinate with once school starts!
