This week’s comic is from Watusi #22 (Aug. 2007), part of a two-part double-blind experiment where I finished a batch of jam comics for #22 & Tom Cherry did the same for #23, both unaware of how the other was finishing them. The paired strips turned out to showcase the contrast in our styles which, while compatible, are very different. I tended to have overly-wordy solutions, while Tom’s were direct and punchy (and IMO, funnier)! While I’ll show off Tom’s take on this strip next week, if you want to see more of our contrasting styles playing well together, I recommend getting a copy of our new comic from this year, Double Dip #2. It’s still my favorite single issue of all the comics I’ve published…
About the contributors: Dan Lauer is one of my APA-5 compatriots from back in the day; I love his mix of cartoony & action-packed artwork. Keith O’Brien makes wonderful postcard comics and blogs about life in Forbidden Falls, Maine.

HA HA HA HA!!!!
Glad you liked it! I was pretty happy with that one, too…
While still making postkards, I haven’t put anything on the blog in three years.
When I draw one of these panels I always try to put in some sort of twist or bit of weirdness. In this instance, since the judge’s feet were not shown in the first panel, I gave him fancy cowboy boots.
That’s the “Yes, and…” way to do it! Which is the best way, I think…
