I like version 2 best, its less predictable. I agree with Greg about it being too wordy, panel 3 especially.

Starting. There are too many things in my life that make me happy but also encourages my procrastination in sitting down at my typewriter.

From HOME FRIES POV you should be happy about there being more people strips than funny animals strips. Children have replaced talking animals for social comments. PEANUTS started the trend. Aaron McGruder has said Huey as a child can say or do things Huey could not if he was an adult. I wonder what...

I enjoy the strange humor of INVADER ZIM, Jack Cole and Steven Wright. I enjoy the word play of SHEEP IN THE BIG CITY, Jay Ward and George Carlin. I enjoy the humor of Mark Tonra (JAMES, TOP OF THE WORLD). I enjoy subtle satire of KING AROO. A good example of my personal style of humor is the writer...

I agree with Greg that your gag is fine. Andy could be alone in the house and the food could be an after school snack his Mom left him. It is easy to overthink gags. Now is the time to just do it and see how we react. As for the current storyline I didn't understand why the mechanic seemed so angry ...

I can read your new version <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">! While WebTV can handle some flash some newer versions are too much for it to handle. WebTV tends to be a few years behind technology. But I like the way it allows me to watch TV while surfing the web.

BTW I had the same problem with RUDY PARK until they fixed it. Maybe they can help you deal with the e-moron Web TV.

The LA Times used to alternate all their panels as well as WIZARD OF ID and BC. Since most papers own the rights to more comics than they print it is possible to do this. Since so many panels are similar and feature random gags few readers notice that CLOSE TO HOME is in Thursday paper instead LOOSE...

Scott, today's strip is you at your best. It was wonderfully sweet and left this reader smiling. Meanwhile I loved today VOICE IN MY HAND because it was wickedly funny. Mean has its place but so does nice gentle strips such as HOME FRIES.

I started to think about what comics would I call edgy. PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, OVER THE HEDGE, BC, BOONDOCKS, NON SEQUITUR, LIBERTY MEADOWS, 9 CHICKWEED LANE, and VOICES IN MY HAND. Many web comics test the boundaries of acceptable behavior of a comic. Not only with moral behavior but with the form it...

To me "edge" refers to the current boundaries. TV shows such as LAUGH IN and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, comedians such as Richard Pryor and George Carlin, comics such as KRAZY KAT, POGO, DOONESBURY, and BOONDOCKS all have pushed the limits of their format. SOMETHING ABOUT MARY was not an edgy movie becaus...
