Pim Comic Strip

How I came to write Pim
People often ask how I came to write Pim. It seems like a thousand years since I discovered Pim, or that Pim discovered me. Thankfully I kept detailed notes and saved photos from that time. While I can’t swear to the absolute accuracy of what you are about to read, I have done my best to capture the essence of how Pim entered my life.

While spending his last dollars on earth to drown his sorrows, the Well-Dressed Albatross was joined by Brad. Since we saw him last, Brad had re-edited and distributed their film himself, and it was now a huge success. As producer The Well-Dressed Albatross was owed $9.2 million.

The Well-Dressed Albatross who left the Casino 48 hours later was a Well-Dressed Albatross with nothing left to lose but his fine apparel.

Having spent most of the family fortune on a forgery, the Well-Dressed Albatross had the brainstorm of recovering it through gambling. (Your prediction of how this will go is likely similar to mine.)

However, just after the sale—from an apartment abandoned by the time police had traced the call—Christie’s received anonymous information that the painting was a forgery.

In fact, the Well-Dressed Albatross was NOT in a pub. He was at Christie’s, keen to bid on a charming equestrian scene by George Stubbs.

With Mrs. Love out of the way (or so he believed) Mr. Love began his search for the Well-Dressed Albatross by checking every drinking establishment on Earth. But the Well-Dressed Albatross was proving difficult to find.

You’ve guessed that Pim and Bim don’t require food or shelter and only get jobs because they enjoy them. Like this new one, processing cargo at an airport (a job so bland I haven’t bothered to imagine what they were thinking.)

Knowing that complex strategies against Mrs. Love were doomed to failure, Mr. Love and the Vivians contrived an explosion that would blow Mrs. Love’s headquarters to oblivion. It went off perfectly. However, two days prior Mrs. Love had relocated to a disused observation tower.

As usual, the Vivians were way ahead of Mr. Love.

Mr. Love knew he could not defeat Mrs. Love by himself. That he must needs enlist his ‘nieces,’ Meg and Peg. He set out for their headquarters, navigating an air of toxic emissions and hellish winged creatures.
