Throwback Thursday: The Walter Boyd Band
For those of you reading along since 2003, you may remember that I was once involved in music. The earliest band I was in was called The Walter Boyd Band, which was a one-man-band (me) with another person’s name. (Kinda like Jethro Tull). I was the only one who understood my own joke, but “we” did put out one album.
Here’s the cover I made in 2008 for an attempt a 5 year anniversary reissue.

Throwback Thursday: The Ice Fighters
When I was a kid, my brother and I made up comics about guys in space with laser-like swords and we called them the Ice Fighters. (I am not sure where we got the idea to have our heroes use laser-like swords in 1986!)
