causticlad: Matter-Eater Lad doing his cracky thing (Default)

A fistful of Fantagraphics' Critters came out of the latest Box from the Closet thus reminding me of J.P. Morgan, who made me laugh quite a lot at the time with his Fission Chicken. I'd guess I wasn't the only one, as the character ended up getting his own series for a few issues before falling afoul (ha!) of one of Fantagraphics' periodic money crises some time around 1993.

Lo! and behold Google tells me that the Chicken of Wrath is still a going concern, running as a web comic after a hiatus that lasted until 2006. But let me introduce Morgan's creation to y'all via the very first comic to feature him (though published second, in Critters #22, February 1988). This is sort of Fission Archeopteryx, as he had a redesigned head starting from his second story (and first appearance), but on the other hand the script is more representative of the current run's humour -- the other Critters stories are, in retrospect, slowed down by some pretty heavy-handed satire.
