The Invisible Man


Here We Are: The Invisible Man by Horrible Markus©
The first ever cartoon with no drawings...
(World Première - ITA Eng Subs - Soon in 3D)


Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Hi. I'm Jack, the Invisible Man, and I star in Markus's new cartoon
- It is the first strip in cartoons history whose characters are invisible
- Obviouvsly, given that the medium affects the message, Markus's ineptitude as a drawer had its importance in carving his style 




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- One could argue: OK, the character is invisible, but the background? Where's the background?
- The answer is very simple: I, the invisible man, live in the invisible world.
- That Markus has all the luck!




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
(singing)
- Ouch! 
- Somebody threw an invisible pie in my face.





Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Hey, an invisible flower! I'm going to pick it.
- But...
It was an artificial flower, and it sprayed some invisible water on my face.







 
Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus 
- Well, I was minding my own business.





 Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Bark, bark!
- Rufus, be good!
- I was playing with Rufus, my invisible dog.
- It's not true... it was me that barked, just to kid you...
Ha, ha...





 Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Unfortunately, by being so small-sized, this strip makes the landscape of the invisible city much less dramatic 
 
 
 
 

Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Among the advantages of being invisible, you can stick your finger up your nose in public.




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Ralph! Ralph, my pal! How are you?
- Ralph?
- Um... it ain't Ralph... it's a mailbox...   
 




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- What a shame, I thought it was my friend Ralph, it was a mailbox, instead..
- Well, let's see the good part... 
- If I could only manage to find that letter I wrote yesterday...





Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- (singing)
- How you dare reading this strip while I'm having a shower?
- You debauched!





Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Dammit! I forget to buy some cooking salt!
- Now I have got to go back to the supermarket!

- Oh, listen, not that I can always say something fun.




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Oh, no!
- Rats!
- If there's one thing I hate, it's gettin' up on a foggy morning.



Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Markus wonders where I find my livelihood, because in no strip so far it looks that I perform any job
- Sssst!
- In this very moment, my boss thinks me to be sitting at my desk





Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- These silent movies, they are really boring




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- In the invisible world, it's very easy to mistake one person for another, Jack is right!
- What?
- Is Jack me?
- That's what I just said



Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- OK, I am Jack...
- I still have one doubt left from the above strip...
- Who the devil was he I am talking with?




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- I can't stand beaches, so crowded...



Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Oh, no...
- I hate when it happens...
- Where the devil did I put my glasses?



Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- D'ya think I'm a cowboy?
- Why is it funny, if said by Popeye?




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- We have to punctualize: this comic doesn't deal with matters like...
- Religion... sex... politics... serious diseases... carrots...
- Markus doesn't like carrots.




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Dammit! Because this comic doesn't deal with carrots...
- ...Bugs Bunny refused to be my stooge.
- He was on the verge of signing




.
Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Markus fears the name "Bugs Bunny" to be a copyright of Time Warner inc.
- Therefore, to avoid us a copyright infringement charge by a major company, please read again the above strip and in place of the words "Bugs Bunny" mentally substitute the words "a rabbit".
- Certainly  it's less fun this way.








Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Ugh! Why don't you like miming games?







Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Markus feared this comic strip to be boring, so he decided to introduce a new character
- An invisible parrot
- Polly wants a cracker
- I, for one, don't think Polly's going to give a big contribution to the strip






Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Suddenly I feel useless... empty...
- I don't know what I want in life...
- Polly wants a cracker
- Sorry, folks, our humour is low-level







Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
 - Everything goes wrong...
- Taxes... rising prices... trains late... and...
- Polly wants a cracker
- Unfortunately, due to Markus's fondness for comic routines, we are going on and on for a long time






 Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- In the invisible world someone is discriminated against on the basis of skin colour
- What are you saying? How can skin colour be distinguished if we are invisible?
- Oh, does THIS sound absurd to you?





Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Jack wants a cracker.
-Variation on a theme. An old trick.





 Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- In the invisible word, if someone is starving on the street, we can't see him...
- ...we don't notice him until he is lying on the sidewalk and he is hindering our way...
- ...then we use to trample him.
- Certainly in your world things are not the same.






Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- Polly wants a cracker
- Technically, this strip is a fill-in




Jack, The Invisible Man by Markus
- That's enough! It's time to protest!
- Displaying an invisible banner is an easy but a little hypocrite option, and it's a moron one, too.

Ciao,
sono un collaboratore di www.fabergiornale.it, sito online di ragazzi milanesi che si occupano (per gioco e ovviamente a gratis) di cose serie e meno serie.
Mi piacerebbe molto poter pubblicare la striscia di Jack sul nostro sito. Che ne dite? Markus?
In ogni caso complimenti, è davvero divertente e ben disegnata.

Ciao, scusa il ritardo.
Grazie per il giudizio positivo sulla parte grafica, che è il punto forte di questo fumetto.
Nessun problema da parte mia, prendile pure.
A scanso di equivoci vorrei però precisare che non esistono altre strisce (quelle che hai letto risalgono a parecchi anni fa) o quanto meno io non le ho più. Non so se il Principe Myskin ne conserva altre. Io sono un uomo di mezza età e faccio tutt'altro...
Saluti
