“Between 1973 and 1981 I produced much of what appears in this book. They were very silly times. The Captain was my response to that era and my own enthusiastic embrace of its worst excesses. A year ago, I re-read the strips for the first time in 30 years. At that distance it seemed like someone else’s work. The early strips had a certain naive charm and looked to me like the work of a teenager (I was 30 at the time), but just like Goodvibes himself they became more refined as the years went by. I’ve never been convicted of the crime of consistency – a fact borne out by this collection – and if The Captain had an unpredictable and erratic nature, so did (and does) his creator. At the time I was quite adamant there was no resemblance between him and me, but looking back from the Everest of age and wisdom, the similarities are now frightening. I grew to realise the abominable creature living inside me, escaping occasionally through the end of my pen, was in many ways me.” – Tony Edwards
