There isn’t much crossover between readers of Arctic Circle and readers of Midge Bristol Investigates, my full page comic for the kids magazine Scientriffic. So when the editors of this magazine asked for a comic about taxidermy I was able to recycle one of my favourite AC gags for the top panel:
This is how the gag appeared in Arctic Circle a few years ago:
I can’t stand litter. No matter how much we educate kids, or make dropping litter seem uncool (I particularly like posters like the one below), there will always be a few idiots who drop it. But I figure that if there were enough people like us who not only didn’t drop litter, but also picked up the litter they found (modern Wombles, as it were), then everywhere would look a hell of a lot better and we wouldn’t have the problems associated with plastic getting into our waterways (and ultimately our food chain).
