Neroy Sphinx- What You See Ain't What You Get (b+w)

I drew this strip by writer Dan Whiston for the small press title FutureQuake a few years ago. When 2000Ad's Tharg (Matt Smith) announced he was going to feature amateur comics in The Judge Dredd Megazine our editor decided this would be a good one to submit. So we were all delighted when in appeared in Meg 263.

Here are the black and white unlettered pages
