The Brutal Best of Bruno the Bandit!

With the kind permission of creator Ian McDonald, I'm going to start posting the occasional Bruno strip from the archives, highlighting what I consider the "Brutal Best" of Bruno the Bandit. The strip has had some high points, comedically, historically and artistically, and I'd like to give a few of these a new moment in the sun. To kick things off, we have the very FIRST strip in the series, introducing us to our hero and his world. Ian's style was not nearly as polished here as it would be in later strips, but I think he did a fantastic job of setting up the tone and environment of the strip in just a few panels. You can also quite clearly see his sword and sorcery comic book roots, definitely a defining factor in the development of the strip. Enjoy!
