- The Best Cartoons from France (1955)
"Dropy learned to draw before he learned to write, a habit which caused him to fail consistently in school. His first group of cartoons were unanimously rejected by the editors who saw them. Perseverance, however, won out, and his fantastic drawings are now happily accepted everywhere. A man of violent feelings yet sentimental thoughts, he keeps two portfolios—one titled Monsters, which is self-explanatory, the other titled Bonshommes, in which his milder ideas are collected."

Fifteen Heart Attacks was a story I began, I'm guessing, in 2009 or 2010. But life caught up to me and the project died. But I can present this unfinished piece in stages. Maximum Traffic got in on the act later. You'll see.
Morty the Dog's declaration on the splash page is a direct quote from the amazing Vincent Price in his very best movie, Theatre of Blood. Supposedly I actually uttered these lines when I came out of surgery while under the influence of pain killers on April Fool's Day, 1995.
One time in the late 1970s/early 1980s I woke up after a wild party and found myself behind a couch in the morning. That fond memory inspired this page.
