the new "nancy" strip from olivia jaimes has driven demand for youth focused strips in the funny pages. the syndication companies are rich with old comic ip but they need artists to modernize the concepts. that's why they've tapped byob. as a youth oriented online message board it's the perfect place to develop cutting edge humor concepts that will draw young eyes to the newspaper again and we will save the local news industry.

how it works: post itt to receive your assignment. i will choose a random comic strip and link you the wikipedia article. using what you learn in the article, modernize the strip concept. post an example strip itt. if you need to do a multi part story you can post multiple strips as long as you remember that nobody likes it when comic strips do that. if you post your strip on sunday it has to be in color.

example exchange:

me: i volunteer to save the local newspaper industry

me: your strip is frankie doodle

i don't have any say in who gets what strip. there's a computer system for that. all automated these days. however, you did get a well known one. rex morgan md by nicholas p dallis

are you signing up cda? syndication is starting to worry that byob doesn't have the work ethic they were lead to believe. they're starting to say we're spending more time reading the comics than producing them. and if my numbers don't come up, i don't get paid. if i don't get paid, there are no comics. because comics need ink. and ink ain't cheap.

We lied. We are not at war. There is no enemy. This is a rescue operation.

I am getting that eerie but sublime feeling that used to creep over me whenever I got to read the "funnies" and see what was happening in "gasoline alley." goodness, who had their finger on the pulse more accurately? for better or for worse? i'll cut you
