# 12 – The Bulben

| November 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Bulben is Malk’s brother.  He is capable of emitting blinding light and searing heat.  The Bulben is also capable of processing electronic forms of communication.

<Creator comments:  Yes, the Bulben is a giant light bulb, while his brother is an eggplant.  Let’s just say that Bulben experienced a very serious accident in his laboratory one day.>

[In 1974, at the age of 12, I drew a series of “comic books” detailing the adventures of Merrill, a 15-year-old human boy, in the Other Land, an invisible dimension which co-exists with our own.  The characters I am submitting throughout the 30 Days are the inhabitants of the Other Land.]

About the Author ()

I am a middle school teacher. Back in 1974, I created a series of comic books based on the adventures of the members of the Difference Club. (Anybody remember Bic Banana markers?) The Difference Club consisted of humans, aliens, elementals, and other beings dedicated to one cause: protecting earth from ... the Creatures. I still have these books. Last year, I decided to write another story about them. It's not a terribly original idea, but I wondered what would happen if I discovered that, by writing them in 1974, they actually came into existence in another dimension? How would they feel about me leaving them alone for decades? I promise that you WILL be entertained, if only by laughing at my artwork.
