With the exception of the use of comic sans, two missing apostrophes and one spelling mistake, I love it x your editor

That`S really really good.
I`ll admit that I wasn`t at all interested when you`d unloaded your idea but I have to come clean now. It`s funny.
Is there an Aine Chicken?
I think there should be?
And where`S the ginger chicken?
I didn`t see any in the masses.

Gosh cheers...

Suraya - I knew there was someone I knew quite well who despised comic sans. Pease rest assured that I in fact downloaded and experimented with over 200 new fonts and at the end of the day comic sans was easiest to read at that size. However,it is only for the chickens as the tanks all have fonts and associated characterizations that will reflect/parody the nations that produce the different machines in real life. I hate spelling mistakes and will endeavour to screen all further text before it is included in the base plates for each image. Oh and would you like a new banner?

Aine - Ta so ducks. I could include an Aine chicken if you'd really like, but maybe you better wait a few episodes to see how the plot line develops before you confirm that.

Mike - Well, it started when my good lady friend bought all the small chickens from the 100 yen store in Kashima and left them at my house. I decided I would set them up in a comic book war with my impulse purhcase army of miniature tanks I bought last year. Excepting the first frame, which is entirely fake, the rest is composite miniature photography which I carried out by building myself a small but prefectly functioning blue screen set about 1m x 1m x 1m. After the blue is taken out I lay in background photo's from my own photography over the past year and a half and then spruce the images up to get them to the standard you see here. I'm sorry I just can't also resist pointing out that this is all done on a PC.

We are only maybe an hours worth of work away from completing episode 2 sometime this evening after a long period of working up the tanks to their maximum coolness. Just as it took some time to get the look of the chickens done, it's also taking some time to get the tanks just right.

Makes it even better that you managed to do it on a PC! Groovy too that you made your own blue screen and found a use for your impulse buys.

Spot,
