Marc Jackson’s ‘Man from Space’ lands online

Marc Jackson, one of the team at Macclesfield-based design agency Creative Hero, has just launched his Man from Space web comic – an all-ages, all-awesome (hopefully) outer-space adventures of a intergalactic hobo and his smart-mouthed sidekick Michael… the Goldfish.

“It’s a weekly strip romp into insanity, with a strong focus on wacky characters and snappy dialogue,” enthuses Marc. “Each week I’ll add more pages and after three/four weeks the current episode will finish and move onto a new one.

“There won’t be any long-running stories,” he reveals. “It’s more like a Saturday morning cartoon approach, hopefully introducing more craziness – with no strict story rules and complicated plots!”

The artwork is bright, energetic and eye-catching and the story sheer Saturday morning cartoon silliness. Give it a try.
