After Il-Komik published 9 issues
in 1983-1984, Frankie Cachia of Masterprint, who were publishing and
printing the comic, asked me to work on a special project, using the
character I had created for Il-Komik, the science fiction based "Il-Kaċċatur".
Masterprint were well known for their exercise books for
schoolchildren, and Frankie wanted something different for the
covers of a special edition of "The Graduate" exercise books they
were printing. I came up with three full colour stories for "Il-Kaċċatur",
each one two pages long, starting on the front cover of the exercise
book and continuing on the back. This was a time before computers
and Photoshop, so all effects are created physically by air-brush,
and the colouring done "the hard way", using coloured inks and
acrylics. Fun. This is the first of the stories, collated into one
long strip and relettered.
