Dr. Watchstop

Dr Watchstop was a sweet little series that ran intermittedly in Epic Illustrated, and was always a welcome addition to any issue it appeared in.
The funny animal scientist constantly hoist by his own petard was created by Ken Macklin, who’d already perfected his animation style world in the pages of Mike Freidrich’s Quack! the better production values of Epic obviously enabling him to go colour asnd step up his game quantum style.
Each story is really just a set-up for a gag, but the dotty doctor is a likeable character, and the art really is like watching an especially good big budget cartoon, the only other artist I can think managing this being Vaughn Bode, which is no bad company to be in. The Doctor is in.
