Changes [comic strip]

This is it!

This is the 1982 Louie & Bruce strip showing the day when the boys lost the sawmill—their place of employment for over a year (in actual human years; time runs wibbly-wobbly-whacky in cartoon worlds).

Writing and drawing large, multi-panel strips were fun because of the room they allowed for storytelling, which was good practice for me to sharpen my writing skills—especially writing dialogue.

Unfortunately, newspapers only ran multi-panel strips on Sundays; the rest of the week was reserved for shorter strips. You could call them the “Flash Fiction” strips of the comic world. My story strips were a hard sell to local newspapers, and a harder sell to syndication outfits.

Meanwhile, back at my little studio, I drew another multi-panel strip after this one, which featured the boys at their community college. I’ll include that one in my next post.

Until then, peace and love!

    Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff? You sound like a Doctor Who fan.

    I guess Creators Syndicate wasn’t interested?

    1. ☺ I began watching Doctor Who on Canadian television in 1969. Been a fan ever since.
      As for my comic strips, I was only able to interest local newspapers.

      At least you got noticed.

      I didn’t get to see Doctor Who until it was imported to the states in the 1970s. I was a kid watching Tom Baker.

    3. Tom Baker was my favorite Doctor. I tried to get a cousin to knit me a long scarf like his. She thought I was daft, LOL.

      Baker was my favorite, too…until Eccleston. Tennant is #3.

    The guy with the beard looks like a cousin of mine. I can see him wearing a hat like that!
