Special Episode 5/2 - What I've Been Up To Since My Band Broke Up - Mull
I've referred to rugby league before (Special Episode 1/1); it's my favourite sport. Australia's rugby league organisation, the NRL, is NOT my favourite. It has (rightly) been criticised for its attitude towards women, and excusing players of both debaucherous and violent behaviour. But that's beside the point. It is the game that I am a fan of, and so this is my tribute. At first, I had drawn all the other players, from both teams, as humans. But then I realised that in he world of the Howler Monkeys, the 'Gargoyles' team could be made up of actual gargoyles; likewise the Clowns. Incidentally, Toowoomba (my home town) is known as 'The Garden City'. Clifton is a nearby town. A famous former rugby league international, who I almost got into a fight with one night, comes from Clifton... I also decided to include Big Fella again. I like him, and I like the idea of a recurring absent/flashback character...
