Weekly Strip #2 - Peter Pentel, the Amazing Spider Man


Bitten by a spider during a school science exhibit, young Peter Pentel became quite interested in the creatures and read a few books about them. Now a middle-aged, unemployed man with mental health problems, he volunteers at his local zoo to gain work experience and shares his spider knowledge with school children. These children – well, one or two of them – call him – or at least called him, on one occasion – the Amazing Spider Man...

Happy Last Christmas


This is an X-Factor-related Christmas card I did last year. I only sent it out to a handful of people and never put it on my website, so I thought I'd stick it on here (the Luke Cage drawing was on the back of the card and must have really confused my relatives).

Weekly Strip #1 - Twenty-Bore


Meet Special Agent Jack Bowser from the Central Terrorist Nabbing Unit (it was going to be the Central Unit for Nabbing Terrorists but I eventually decided that the acronym for that particular organisation was too unsubtle even for my childish sensibilities). Jack used to be one of CTNU’s best agents, until he became obsessed with the number 24…

Love Her Madly Page 1


This is the first page of my new project, Love Her Madly, which is a shortish graphic novel about living in a dull suburban town, irrational workplace crushes, and a strange girl called Celia Doom. So far, I have only drawn this page and about half of the following page, and I may never finish it, but I'm hoping that keeping track of my progress on this blog will motivate me to keep going.

Welcome to the Crisp Biscuit Blog...


Hello, I’m failed cartoonist Robert Wells. Welcome to my new blog, where I intend to publish sketches, random pages from my new project – don’t piss your pants with excitement just yet, I drew the first page a couple of weeks ago and still haven’t finished the second page – and a weekly one-page strip*. I may also use this space to moan about stuff and plug comics by other people, but maybe not. Most of my older comic strips are available to read on my website (crispbiscuit.co.uk) but I probably won’t start putting any new stuff on there for a while. I also write comic reviews, along with my internet friends Paul Rainey, Rol Hirst, and Steve Miller, for Comics On The Ration. My first weekly strip will appear on Monday, but I will probably stick something else up before then. By the way, the sketch above this post is not of me, that’s special agent Jack Bowser from the Central Unit for Nabbing Terrorists. You’ll be meeting him again soon (unless you don’t bother coming back, of course).

*Actual frequency of the weekly strip may not be weekly, please check with your internet service provider, terms and conditions apply, etc.
