New Old Comics

by , under Comics, humor

For many years I drew underground comics. Some of them were published in various papers around Portland and beyond. This particular one features Boig & Bitty, and ambiguous couple largely based on myself and my then-wife Polly (an ambiguous couple if ever there was one).

I like this one because it takes a simple gag and stretches it out over a few panels. Some of the individual drawings still crack me up, too.

The best thing for me was that this was the first time I let the characters really become themselves. The dialog rang true to my ear.

(That means cursing. A lot of it. Because, well, that’s how we all talked. Real potty mouths.)

What do you think?
