2011-2012 school year: editorial v. reviews

Hey! That’s not a typo in the third panel! Or… well, I guess it is. I noticed it after I inked but before I scanned, and I sort of decided I liked it.

New comics after two weeks! Hooray! If you don’t forget (and who’d blame ya?), my classes have just finished up their project on investigative journalism. You can hop back and read from this comic onward to get up to speed!

2011-2012 school year: impressions

This comic somewhat mirrors an early strip I did in this run. I thought doing a bunch of these “talking heads” strips might be an interesting idea… until I remembered that this is not an original idea. Cartoonist Alex Robinson used to do these during his run on Box Office Poison. I always liked the talking heads bits, as they directly revealed things about the characters in the story that might have otherwise gone uncovered.

The Bloggie does the job, but I’m afraid it’s no substitute for the easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain Flip. Unfortunately, I don’t think they’re making Flip cameras anymore.

Sometimes I think my entire life has been spent looking for people to talk with about the movie Jaws. I could teach a class on the subject!

2011-2012 school year: albums

I discovered the newspaper albums on a snooping expedition into one of the back rooms of our media center.

…it’s a shame we don’t have these anymore. Our school can’t even really afford a print version of our student newspaper- I’ve been trying to create an online resource to little joy.

2011-2012 school year: here’s what you do…

I know the last panel seems a little cynical.

I realized, part of genesis for doing this project was inspired by this comic back in 2010. See how it all blends together seamlessly?
