UNCLE SPUNK NUGGET

























For those who don't know Bob Byrne (you lucky few) he's a one-man comics machine. Creator of the fantastic Mr. Amperduke, and Bob Byrne's Twisted Tales for 2000AD, he also was the man responsible for The Shiznit, a free pocket-sized comic that was distributed all around Dublin and other parts of Ireland (i remember handing it into some shops in Limerick once upon a time).

There were many short strips in The Shiznit, one of my favourites being his Rants, as Bob is funniest when he's angriest. But when it comes to characters, nothing he's created has made me bust a gut laughing like his Uncle Spunk Nugget strip. There were only two, but man, i loved them. I'm sure i begged him to do more at some point. Good news then; a brand new Uncle Spunk Nugget strip has started on Bob's new webcomic; SPAZZMOID. I urge you all to read it. You can see it here along with the two old strips from The Shiznit.
