It was my birthday last Sunday. Daniel, perhaps prompted by Natalie, decided to make me a 2000AD birthday card. He doesn't read 2000AD (it not really being a comic for 11 year olds in this modern age), so I have no idea at all why he decided on Zombo, a very polite secret government experiment with a taste for human flesh.
We live in the future these days and I kinda-sorta-know-on-the-internet Zombo writer Al Ewing. I thought he would be tickled, so I popped the picture up on Twitter. I cheekily copied in Zombo artist Henry Flint too, but had no real expectation that either would even notice.
... but within minutes ...
@jezhiggins Only 11, wow... boys got talent. he's captured Zombo's 'mad' expression perfectly... Happy birthday.— Henry Flint (@henryflintZ) May 29, 2011
@jezhiggins Aww! That's cheered me up.— Al Ewing (@Al_Ewing) May 29, 2011
What good blokes.
The internet. It's top.
