“Makimbah: The God of Piss” was a stop-motion animation model idea I concocted in the early-eighties combining elements of Ray Harryhausen’s Cyclops from The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (1958) & Marilyn Chambers’ pulsating phallus protruding from a prolapsed anal armpit cavity equipped with an infectious hypodermic spike from David Cronenberg’s Rabid (1977). Except since I was designing a superhero character, I just flat-out turned mine into urinating penises as a superpower. I never got to build it into a model but I serialized the character somewhat as a comic strip, making its first appearance in Montreal counter-culture magazine Sugar Diet #1 (1984). The pages seen here are from when I revived Makimbah in the mid-nineties for an exhibition. When Eric Braun asked if he could publish it in an issue of 106U in 1997, I removed the text & replaced it with hieroglyphics so it could appeal to a wider global audience. I didn’t miss the text; too much exposition. But if you want a transcript of the original script I can provide you with one upon purchase of the original art.
