- It's Napoleon Blownapart!"
Created in delirious bad taste, this was the tale of a mad
bomber who scampered around town blowing up indiscriminate
targets with mischievious glee.
Could this be drawn now? - No way.
Should it even have been drawn back then? - Probably not.
But political correctness be darned, this was very funny
especially with all those fiddly details Mike Brown loved
Monsieur Blownapart appears just once in the 1978 Krazy
Annual, and has disappeared altogether come the 1980
edition. Given the Fleetway penchant for reprinting odd
strips, it may well be that Napoleon appeared elsewhere
- maybe even from as far back as thos Odhams days -
prior to his arrival here. If you know his origins, do
please let us know!
