Premier Post and Comic!

I have been wanting to do my own comic strip for several years!  The question always came back though: What would it be about?

It finally struck me.  I think it was a loose brick that fell off a building, but I lost my short term memory.  Trying to fit my sense of humor into a Garfield of Calvin and Hobbes format would be like having bricks fall on my head.  Unsustainable over the long term.  I'm much more of a Far Side/Argyle Sweater kind of humorist.  Though my ideas generally span two or more frames.  Gary Larsen and... the guy who writes Argyle Sweater... would kick me out of their club.  I'm guessing the guy who writes AS is also named Gary Larsen and, and he may even be the same guy.  I've never seen them together, so it's a fair bet.

My first strip came about as an entry to a Mentos contest on deviantArt.  It should have won!  Argh!  But since it didn't, I'm posting it here, and will be posting new comics every... um... well... whenever I get around to it.

Oh yeah.  There's, like, gonna be a sidebar up soon so you'll know who the hell I am and then you can decide if you think I'm worthy to write a comic.  Probably not.  I've been far too serious up to this point!  Nah.  You'll enjoy it.
