I just had an interview with a writer from my college alumni magazine (Wahington U, St Louis). While chatting with her, I mentioned an old, irreverent college strip that I tried to get syndicated after graduation, called â€œZero.â€ Since it was a college-based strip, editors werenâ€™t too keen on publishing it (although many wrote nice things in their rejection letters).
I’ve always had an affinity for this cartoon. I even showed it to the King Features editor, Jay Kennedy, during the PD launch just as a fun diversion. I also whipped out his glowing rejection letter.
Thought I’d post some of those early strips, drawn back in ’92-ish. Figured they might inspire some younger cartoonists who are hoping to get syndicated, or provide them with an excuse to say, â€œMan, I can do sooo much better than this s**t!â€
