Doc Rat made its first webcomic appearance on 26th June 2006, and in 2021 it will celebrate its fifteenth birthday. In that time, the good doctor has had to deal with swine flu, computerisation, Medicare, violence, tragedy, parenthood, bushfire and now COVID-19. And all he’s asked to do is to cure the sick and bring about world peace. Fifteen years and thirty-seven hundred strips. A big thanks to my readers and supporters over this epic journey.
What about the eBooks?
They are still on the way. This is all a technical learning curve for me, and it’s quite a challenge. Keep the faith, people, they will happen.
What other Doc Rat news is there?
For those of you in Australia, I’ll be at FurDU, on the Gold Coast, Queensland, from 7th to 9th May 2021.
And a shout out to the comic Gaia, written by the German author Oliver Knörzer (Novil) and drawn by the Indonesian artist Puri Andini (Powree). They also created the comic about a girl and a raccoon, Sandra and Wu. (Do I love that comic? Well, Daniella’s GP is Doctor S. Wu. I rest my case.) Check out their Gaia printed anthology Kickstarter campaign.
