This was the beginning of an effort to make the strips fit into some sort of narrative. It was pretty much a failure… and I ended the run shortly afterwards to start working on Junkyard Angels.
Overall the whole thing was a pretty great learning experience, and we made it to 19 strips before the project imploded which isn’t too bad.
Okay, it’s not great either. But one thing I learned is that I really was better at telling stories, as opposed to writing gags. The “New Adventures” was laid out as a sit com with story-lines and character dynamics. And I hope to be able to revisit that story soon.
