I wasn’t originally planning on posting this one today. I wasn’t even planning on drawing it. But last weekend I was doodling, and imagining what Winslow would look like if he were sick, and everything got a little out of control. How out of control? Well, originally it was just going to be Little Winslow in that last panel. But then I drew a tiny clown, because I needed someone to hold the jar with the kidney in it. And then I thought, “Wouldn’t it be awesome to draw a robot surgeon with ill-fitting rubber gloves over his clamp claws?” So I added Robot Ben as well.

This is what happens when absolutely no planning goes into a comic.

Also? That first panel features as many medical cliches as I could cram in there. So Winslow is in bed, with an ice pack, a thermometer, an IV, and an EKG.


Andrew Kaye (known in some circles as AK) is the creator of Ben & Winslow and other questionable comics, many of which can be found in his deviantART gallery. He’s also the editor-in-chief of this magazine. Duh?
