Bumping up an older blog post from June:
Hi! So, this is a sample from the “Almost There” comic strip collection that I submitted to newspaper syndicates back when I was 19 years old. I’m thinking of setting up a separate site to display these as a limited-run thing. I probably will sooner or later.
The concept of Almost There was a family living next door to a crazy inventor. As you may be able to tell from Edmund Finney’s Quest to Find the Meaning of Life, I don’t like being limited by reality in my comic worlds.
The concept was rejected outright.
This particular strip was probably the inspiration for the first Edmund Finney strip.
More rejections to be posted…
