Behind their nom de plume of Charlie Trumper, Eddie Campbell and Phil  Elliott created over 100 comic strips between 1984 and 1985 for the UK weekly music paper, Sounds.

During their stint at Sounds, Phil and Eddie created 3 unique series  (Rodney - the Premonition (download free pdf below) and The Wonders of Science have already been published) and The Mammy  was their last, with Eddie writing and both Eddie and Phil drawing.

This is a story about a loving parent, attempting to provide a caring home for her children in the face of a blunt bureaucratic state and an authority who do not understand the trials and tribulations of raising four vulnerable youngsters.

The Mammy loves her boys and she will do anything to protect them!

We are seeking funding for a 44 page + covers, A4 landscape comic. The interior will be B/W with colour covers (and colour inside  front and  back covers). Everyone who pledges for the physical comic will also receive a digital pdf  version. UPDATE - Everyone who has pledged for a physical comic will also receive an A4 print of the front cover!

LATEST NEWS - Everyone who pledges for a physical comic will receive 4 colour postcards of the inside covers...

LATEST - Here is the back cover...


The Mammy features a myriad cast of 'orrible characters...Including...

Some of you may have missed Phil's comic from last year. ES*EF is a 60-page collection of  short S.F and futuristic stories written by Darryl Cunningham, Glenn  Dakin, Paul Duncan, Phil Elliott and David Thorpe, all illustrated by  Phil Elliott. You can now get a copy together with The Mammy by pledging on the right.

SOUNDS was a music paper published between 1970 and   1991 and initially covered progressive rock but by the mid-seventies  was  championing Punk Rock and New Wave.  Later, it was the first UK  paper  to interview Nirvana (Kurt Cobain was often seen wearing a Sounds t-shirt).

SOUNDS already had a good tradition of featuring   comic strips in its pages, with work by Alan Moore (under the name Curt   Vile), Bryan Talbot and Savage Pencil before Phil and Eddie made their   debut.

The Mammy was first published in Sounds tabloid-size,  This new collection will be A4 landscape which will present the strips as close to the original.

Risks and challenges

All the artwork and design for this comic has been completed and we expect no problems in fulfilling this project once our goal has been reached.
Phil has already run three successful Kickstarter campaigns - ES*EF, Rodney - The Premonition and The Wonders of Science (the last two also with Eddie Campbell).
