What Is Skitter?…

“Skitter” is a humorous comic strip about the absurd misadventures of a group of mischievous bugs… and a girl.

Meet Jack the spider, Gypsy the moth, Chip the cricket, and Luna the girl!…

The original idea for Skitter came to me in – I think – 1990 when I was dreaming up an idea for a video game.  It was my answer to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The difference was that, instead of turtles, they were bugs: A spider, a cricket, a cockroach, and a grasshopper.  They weren’t ninjas, they were military, sporting army helmets and machine guns.  I suppose Desert Storm influenced me.

Although I drew up some sketches of the characters, I never proposed the idea to my employers at Williams/Bally/Midway.

25 years later, having decided to start a webcomic, I dug up that old bug idea, revamped the character designs a bit, and called it “Skitter”.

Skitter has become a passion for me. I love writing and drawing it, as well as creating all the other elements related to it, like videos and the Skitter iPhone app

I hope you enjoy reading Skitter as much as I enjoy creating it!
