PostSubject: Whatever Happened to Mr. Red Box?   Fri Feb 13, 2015 7:11 pm

It appears that Tom K wasn't alone when he was younger, before his solitary confinement in the biscuit tin for more than 40 years! The other day on Chatbox, the guys started talking about and sharing photos of the Red Box Deep Sea Diver and I suddenly started to get flashbacks to 1970, playing with that thing in the bath and feeling pissed that the diver's suit started to split and fall apart and leak water everywhere. But, what happened to Mr. Red Box and his disastrous diver's suit?

Those of you that know Tom K from Chatbox, know that he can be a little petulant and difficult to impress, and that many a fine figure of a VAM has been fired from his team, for not being quite as perfect as he is. But! We are discovering now that Tom K is more of a Jekyll and Hyde character than we first imagined, so what did happen to Mr. Red Box back in those innocent and care free days of the Summer of 1970?

I seem to remember someone perhaps did away with him?

Tom K's Light Side


Tom K's Dark Side

affraid I can hear the skeleton in Tom K's cupboard rattling!!

Summer 1970...While everyone was protesting about the war in Vietnam, mourning the drug related deaths of Jimmy Hendrix and Janice Joplin, and listening too Mungo Jerry, Edison Lighthouse and Mary Hopkin( Shocked )..

Sinister events were taking place in a garden shed in suburban South London.

Well it's now the subject of a cold case investigation....

Mr Redbox God he looks really scary with them red eyes. I'm really liked the dark comic strip you did Dal, well done my friend. BUT IS this the END for Tom K, well we'll just have to look out for future comic stores.
