Drew these at work a week or so ago. A little experiment with comic strip storythelling over comic book storytelling. A daily strip is very different from comic book format, the beats are completely different. If a reader were getting these daily, you need to end each strip on a beat. Then, when Friday rolls around that strip has to take the final beat up a notch. Not sure how successful this is, and I suppose until ai actually make them legible, I can't expect anyone to tell me.
The three strips that I found myself being influenced most consciously by were Blondie, Doonesbuy and Peanuts. Can anybody spot how?
