John Purcell Paper A5(ish) sketchbook number 4, begun Septemberish 2002

Ah, yes ... the first signs there of work on a strip called Jellybeanboom that I drew for Listen, the proposed follow up to Sentence from Test Tube Comics. Jellybeanboom was very poor indeed, if memory serves, so the fact that Listen was never published was something of a mercy from my point of view (though a shame in regard to other strips drawn for it by the likes of Mark Stafford, Tom Gauld, Gary Northfield and Nick Abadzis).

I say it was never published, but I should perhaps say that it hasn't been published yet. Last time I checked it was still listed on Amazon as being forthcoming. But don't hold your breath.
