Twin Pekes



In this post, I noted the Gnostic themes embedded in the British Transformers comics during the early 1990s. Well, in the back of those same comics there was a pastiche character, “Combat Colin”: over the previously described story arc he featured in a send-up of the then-contemporary Twin Peaks—albeit without the rape and murder, given this was a children’s comic. The strip features David Lynch, owls, and in-jokes about Twin Peaks; as it happens, I am not a Twin Peaks fan: of all Lynch’s films, I only like Dune. Oh, one more thing: Combat Colin, as revealed in his last-ever appearance, lives in the small Midlands town where I reside—and where my family have lived for many years, another coincidence.
