Stumble Bones with his CROWnies, Vinny & Itchy
Stumbling to life
"Stumble Bones in Da Funny Pages"
The holy trinity always confused me. How could all three fit into one body? Who decided what they would have for breakfast? Which one of the ten commandments did they each choose? It wasn't until I discovered 3 in 1 oil that I got it! Then it all made sense. Stumble Bones, me main man in the book, is like a can o' 3 in 1 oil: part "he", part "me", part "crow". The two sets of twins (the crows & the Stumbles) are some of the multiple personalities of the one Stumble Bones.
The book is tribute to some comic geniuses of the past: Buster Keaton, W.C. Fields, Marx Brothers, George Herrman and a few others. They are all part of me now and I tried to get a little bit of them, and me, on these pages.
