    Kilts in comics

    The topic of kilts came up in a paintball-related comic strip yesterday:

    Clans: Armstrong and Guthrie on Father's side.
    Other heritage: Mostly German and some Polish on Mother's side.
    Kilts: One five-yard semi-traditional in Armstrong Ancient 13oz from Lochcarron

    I liked that.

    Can't say as I have ever come across a kilt comic, but I do know they have made it into paintball. Many years ago my wife and I were the scholarship committee for our local St. Andrew's society, we gave a scholarship to a young piper with a compelling story. A few years later and my playing on a paintball team, I read in a magazine of a paintball battle reenactment with a piper and it was the young man we had given the scholarship to. I never got to meet him, but I did meet his brother who was a drummer and also got a later scholarship from our society. That was by chance at a fundraiser for a band he was playing in.

    So sorry for the thread hijacking but kilt's & paintball have been mixing since at least the 1990's.

    I remember a kilted Batman and Robin in an American comic book.
    That was decades before paintball.

    There were stories of kilted regiments in battles in the comics I used to buy - Hotspur, Victor and Valliant - I used to walk down to the town rather than catching the school bus and buy a comic at the news stand with the money. Lots of tales about pipers winning medals and kilted infantry frightening the Hun.

    I blame being put into kilts when very young, myself. Brought on a tendency to climb trees, to run around shouting and to respond to being picked on with both fists.

    I've examples of many kilted characters in comics...just not sure which were actually drawn that way and which have been adapted.

    Just seems like a beek with nice bees. Italian Hybrids are known for being super gentle, for example.

    I've done my weekly maintenance in an Pakastani-made acrylic kilt and a Utilikilt, no shirt, no socks, no veil, no smoke. I've had only one sting, but that was because the bee got caught in my belly flap and I bent over at the same time.
