Wow, I had no idea what kind of response this comic would get! Thank you all so much for reading and commenting. I will continue to post these strips daily here on deviant art, at twitter, my monster-comic facebook page and my website.
Haha, I had the bug oven thing, and the Die cast REAL METAL molder that melted these little aluminum pellets into stuff like wizards and dragons and a motorcycle. And at 8, REAL METAL was the best selling point ever.
