Catching a Strontium Dogfish...

'Catch of the Day' tells the story of Mukky Mud Flapper, the perfect character for a Redemption Story if there ever was one - problem is, Mukky's not interested in redemption.

Mukky's only interested in gunning down Strontium Dogs.

Years ago Mukky himself was a young up-and-coming Strontium Dog bounty hunter. But then he got old. Got mean. Got drunk. Got drunker. Killed a few innocent people and then killed a few more. Now he's got a whopper of a bounty on his head and every SD agent is after it - but for Mukky, that's like shooting dogfish in a barrel!

'Catch of the Day' will appear in a future issue of the super-cool Strontium Dog fanzine, Dogbreath. Artist Ryan S. Thomason designed the characters above (that's Mukky in the middle).


  1. Holy crap a Ren and Stimpy reference!
    Does he at least say "Ya lousy bum" in the story?

  2. Someone spotted it! It's gone through two editors and an artist and no one called me on it!

    Maybe he should say "Ya lousy bum"...I've still got that last rewrite.

  3. Who's the greatest mudskipper of them all?
    Who can skip through the mud with the greatest of ease? (What kind of wonderful guy?)
    Who can crawl like a dog without scraping his knees? (Who's got segmented eyes?)

    It's Muuuuddy! Mud-Skipper!
    It's Muuuddy! Mud-Skipper!
    It's the Mud-eeee! Muuuud! Skiiiii-per showwwwwww!

    If you cannot think of a way to seamlessly blend these lyrics into the script,Matt, I don't think you can call yourself a man.
