Early Drafts [1979]

So what does a child do when he desperately wants to experience a movie but can't, because he's underage? Why, he makes up his own version of course! Nah, actually, 20th Century Fox were so disappointed with O'Bannon & Shussett's version, they rang a 10 year old kid in Ireland for help. So, allow me to present: ALIEN - as it might have been!

"Oh no, It's ALIEN!"

Star Wars: age 9

All of this started here - in 1977. On the bedroom floor with office paper, biros, markers and the self-assuredlness of a 9 year old.

Yes, it's Mid-Life Crisis Pt.I.

A comic which may - or may not ever be published. Made 1 and a half times, between 1981(?) and 1983(?). Yes, as usual, I took more than one swipe at it.

I get very excited about this occasionally, but then I re-read it and feel embarrassed.
