Welcome to the Big Book of Bean!
Finally, the completed Beanboy pages collected in one book! Yes, the story just stops short for no apparent reason and unfortunately, I never got around to finishing it. Life happened.
I was just warming up to big and grand
extended narratives with these characters when I started developing my
newspaper comic strip ideas instead. Beanboy was to have explored
underwater realms and subterranean vistas and begun communicating
somewhat unwillingly with the (un)dead thanks to the Doctor’s experiments. He may well do so one day, if I ever have the time.
A 2 minute animated pilot was even done with the talented Mr Greg Holfeld and with the assistance of the South Australian Film Commission for a planned series of interstitial cartoons. Alas, there have been no takers and the Bean was canned.
The primal tropical forest world eventually became the basis for my
newspaper comic strip idea Uncle Silas. In fact, if you look closely in the graphic novel, you may just see Beanboy and the Doctor make an appearance somewhere...
