)-- “If you haven’t heard of Starchy the Dark Spud, hey, where have you been?!?” Asks Dave Sim. Dark Spud is basically Batman, as a potato, but not as intelligent or graceful. It began as a comic book, expanded to comic strips, and eventually animated episodes on YouTube. The animated series is also featured each week on Queen City’s Geek TV. Aired in the Buffalo New York area, on WBBZ TV. The complete series may be viewed on YouTube, by searching DarkSpud.
Terrible Lizard Comics, which publishes Starchy the Dark Spud, will soon be releasing a trade paperback. The TP will feature 4 issues of the DarkSpud, over 100 comic strips, as well as pin-ups and guest stars. In full color. This will include a 3 page Cerebus - DarkSpud crossover, based on the animated episode. It will also feature a crossover with Greg Hyland’s character, Lethargic Lad.
