The Comic Strip

Why a comic strip?

Plok comic strip

The Pickford Bros are constantly being bombarded with fan-mail requests to bring back Plok - to develop sequel or to re-release the SNES game on Wii Virtual Console, 3DS, iOS, etc.

After being out of action for 20 years John and Ste felt that a regular comic strip would be a great way to re-introduce Plok to the world.

Will Plok return in his own game? Anything is possible, but for now he's got a lot to catch up on, and the brothers can draw new comic strips a lot faster than they can make new games!
