Walking Man Comics' April issue is "Musicomics" #20, first published in 3/97, with updated artwork to conform with copyright needs, for April 02.

This issue is entitled "The Fishes' Song" and illustrates an original song dedicated to explaining just what fish are (cold-blooded, egg-laying, scaly-skinned, gill-breathing, water-dwelling vertebrates), and to turnng fish names into mystic chants-- pickerel, mackeral, stickleback, eel--.

The song is recorded by Burchie Green, on her CD "Taking My Dog to Dinner", a collection of kids' songs, written by Burchie and Walking Man writer/artist Matt Levin, and features a children's chorus, as well as multi-instrumentalist Mitch Chakour and full studio production.

While most Walking Man comics feature rubberstamped artwork, the 12-page minicomic, "Musicomics: The Fishes' Song", is a blend of rubberstamped and clip art from "Animals" a fabulous Dover Clip Art book.

"Musicomics" #20 is available from Walking Man Comics, 123 Elm St., Hatfield, MA 01038, $1.00 ppd., or in trade.
