CARTOON NETWORK DUMMY...
Back around 1996, EGMONT/FLEETWAY editor PETE
KEMPSHALL got in touch with me to see if I was up for lettering a
four-page strip for a try-out magazine for the foreign market. "Sure!"
I said, and he promptly sent me a FLINTSTONES strip, along with a
script in Danish, I think - can't quite remember. (Or Swedish, Finnish,
or Norwegian. Best to cover all the options.) I had lettered comics
translated from Spanish or Italian into English before, so this was
just the same thing in reverse.
Above is the cover of the 'finished' product. As it isn't priced I
assume it's a dummy, and I received it as a folded sheet which I then
trimmed and stapled into comic form. I don't think it ever progressed
to a regular periodical which was on sale anywhere, so this is quite a
rare product. So, here it is, you lucky peeps, just for your perusal.
(Incidentally, I wasn't responsible for the rather lacklustre and
badly-positioned 'GAME TIME' logo, so don't blame me.)
