When I was at seminary in the early 90's I was part of a touring drama team called the Company. As you might imagine when you travel, rehearse and perform with up to 22 people at a time you can get a bit punchy. I'm sure many of our weirdest in-jokes came from too many late night van rides or rehearsals. This particular joke started with My Pretty Marky and grew from there. Mark's hair was magnificent and all the Company girls were jealous of it. Hence, My Pretty Marky became one of his nicknames. After that, someone wondered what it would be like to have Company action figures and, well, my weird artistic imagination did the rest. This was published in the Company newletter. All in all, I probably did 4 or 5 cartoons while I was in the group but this one turned out especially nice. You can click on the image for a larger view.
