“The construction zone”

When I published the first Watusi Promo Sampler, this was one of the “best of strips” I included to show what was possible with that jam comic format; it dates from Watusi #6 (Oct. 2003). About the contributors: Tom Cherry is a cartoonist, a writer, an actor, the host for an old time radio show and even once judged a chili cook off ; Jack Bertram was an active member of the Small Press Syndicate during my time there, and you can sample his work here.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I want to take a moment to wish a happy Thanksgiving to all my readers– I’m truly grateful for all of you who take the time to check in on Watusi’s adventures every week. Knowing that you’re waiting for a new episode keeps me motivated to do my best each week (even if that means curating the best reprint episodes I can pick)!

  1. me and my wife still have our watusi jam comic on our fridge from all those years ago….these were so fun!……billy


  2. I believe that was my second panel for a Watusi jam comic. I think the construction worker turned out fine, but my first depiction of Watusi leaves a lot to be desired! I think I can draw a fairly good Watusi nowadays and it just took years of practice to do it! Happy Thanksgiving, Dale!


    • I’ve always liked how you draw Watusi, Tom! Although you did make him look less ugly here than I think he looks, I must admit…

      Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
