The Marchers. An everyday story...

While I've beeen struggling to get back into Policy Police, I've kept getting distracted by other ideas. So with a deep bow to Theocritus...
This one has been a long time coming. I originally had the idea for this strip back in the late 70s - and was reminded of it a couple of years ago while rummaging in the attic. I wondered if it had the legs to be resurrected in the here and now - I had a couple of half ideas for some 4 panel strips but I wasn't sure who these people were ... then I found the voices I wanted for a couple of characters  - Penny and Georgie - in Praxinoa and Gorgo in Theocritus' XVth Idyll.

I just needed a hook to pull them into the world of now. So lets see how it pans out. I've decided to run them here cuz you know what they say about the Policy Police. Just when you thought you were out...
