"If you're lying, I'll skewer you and roast your liver!"
Patrick's Adventures is a never-released comic strip series that would feature the exploits of Patrick Hooligans and Lord Sinister's gang between the films Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo and Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile. The comic series first gave way to Tales of the Adventurers, then was rebooted as Journey to Siberia.
As this comic was never released, no information exists about the detailed story. The only confirmed information is that it would first take place between Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo and Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile, then branch out into new adventures. Both of these plot threads have been explored in Journey to Siberia and Tales of the Adventurers, respectively.
As Crazyhouse Comics was in its infancy in 2009, two potential comic ideas were pursued and pitched. The first would have been comics based on The Adventures of Legoman, and the other would have been comics about the character of Patrick. However, when The Adventures of Legoman failed to satisfy audiences, the Patrick comics idea was explored further.
The comics were announced on August 27, 2009, but as work lagged on for both Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile and A Very Patrick Christmas, the comics were placed on the back burner and, on September 21, 2009, were cancelled. The concept remained active, however, and it evolved into what eventually became Journey to Siberia.
"Stop it! Stop it! You're ruining everything!"
Patrick's Adventures contains examples of the following tropes.
- Ascended Extra: While Patrick himself didn't have as big of a role in Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo as his reputation would lead people to believe, these comics were going to outright star the character.
- And the Adventure Continues: When the comics were first announced, it was implied that this was how they were going to end in the weeks leading up to the release of Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile.
- Interquel: These comics were intended to take place after Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo but before Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile. In other words, the concept of these comics was the predecessor to the comics that were eventually released, Journey to Siberia.
- The comics were envisioned as a way to ride on the success of the character of Patrick Hooligans.
