Groupies, gore and guitars – it must be more Rock In Purgatory!
Yesterday’s Screws was loads of fun to create. Not only did I get to draw comics like usual, I got to splatter the pages with fake blood! Sadly, I didn’t get to take photos, but let’s just say that when my girlfriend came home to see the physical effects in our kitchen it made me realise this strip was going to be a hit.
Tackling the concept of groupies was a bit of a challenge. People make their own choices as to how they wish to behave, but I wanted to explore the idea of how over confident personalities can convince people to do things they may not normally do. The resulting comic addresses infidelity, regret and revenge, while also allowing for a classic slasher-style murder scene.
