Doesn't look like it so far to me, but for reference, the Brambletown site is here.

Can't wait to see how this one develops!

Hmm.. here's an idea. I (and most of us here I'm sure) find it very interesting to see how the pictures develop from a sketch to a full picture, but sadly the sketches get lost when the pics get updated.

So Scott: Would it be possible to somehow keep the sketches on a separate page, or maybe using rollovers or something like that?

Just a though.

I'm not sure how this will develope, but it already reminds me of the great cartoon "Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys". This should be a great strip.

My goodness. I though I was the only person to watch that show. OH, and to show how you can find anything on the net, www.spacemonkeys.net It appears to have no underlining furry tones, like so many animal cartoon show sites seem to have... (If you don't know what a furry is, ur better off)

I'm not sure whether it was intentional or not, but the characters Monkey Green and Monkey Gunboy seem to have similarities with the animation in Gorillaz "Clint Eastwood" video.

Well, seeing as how I'm listening to Gorillaz as I'm drawing it it would be hard to deny that there's some influence there.

[Pop Quiz: Mike Patton came up in Uninformed Bob; I now know a connection between Gorillaz and M.P. (thanks to the our friend Sally) Who can post that connection first?]

Hey, Scott!

Won't you draw me some ... Monkey Town?
Won't you draw me some ... Monkey Town?

My housemates are tired of hearing me sing every time I read your comic, so I'm infecting the folks here.

The awesome Mike Patton collaborated with Dan The Automator of the Gorillaz on the "Lovage" project...

Do I win a prize...?

Scott Mccloud listens to the Gorillaz? You are now officially my number 1 idol... for the time being...
I've loved the Gorillaz ever since I saw the Clint Eastwood video late one night last year. I have both of the US releases, and I love ever song on both of them.

The last post was me. Hi, I'm Howard, 16 year old kid out here in Los Angeles. I just desided to join(seeing as I read almost everyday here at school), so I'm just announcing myself. Bye!

Right! Give that man a cookie!

Alas, no real prize... I hang my intangible head in shame.

Hey, I've got a Blur CD (13) next to Gorillaz too. The connections boggle! (They share a member Damon Albarn).

Been catching up with a lot of music lately, including The Eels

That looks like a mandril all right, but I always thought a madrill was a baboon, not a monkey. At least that's what I remember reading at the Primate House at the Bronx Zoo, when I was a kid.

Now it would make sence for baboons to be at war with the monkeys of Monkey Town; but Monkey "A" declares the mandril a giant floating "MONKEY" head. I ams confused.

Mandrils are baboons. However, to me, most of the members of Monkeyteam look like chimpanezees, which are apes rather than monkeys. (Super Professor Monkey is a chimp or I'm a monkey's uncle.) Scott McCloud is just using the time honored tradition in which all advanced primates - old and new world monkeys, baboon and apes - are called monkeys. This is common in informal, careless speech and fits in well with the type of over-the-top superhero parody Scott is (apparently) doing in Monkeytown.

Similarly (and perhaps even more commonly) many people refer to all insects (or even all land-dwelling arthropods) as bugs, when properly bugs should be used to refer only to insects of the order Hemiptera.
