rejects* pt.2

*Only "Wuz Entmee" was actually rejected. "Kiki and Neesy" is still under consideration over at Nick, but I thought I'd throw it in here anyways. The last one, with the wolfmen, was such a failure that I didn't submit it. Self-rejection I suppose. It may have the most complicated, least comprehensible, least funny "punchline" of all comics ever.

I have to say that I've really liked both the wolf pieces in the rejects posts the most out of the sets.

The wolf one in this post may be too heady for Nickelodeon (I haven't seen much from their magazine so I don't know) but I wouldn't call it unfunny. Certainly not the least funny comic around. I could find many examples that would shame these pages in that category.

I don't know if you will ever go back to look at this comment, as this was a post from almost a year ago, but I just read this "Mystery Cave" comic last month, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. I came back to read it and was surprised by how simple the execution is. The concept is so big (and creepy) that the whole comic had grown into a sort of epic in my memory. You've got a real knack for comics.

Thanks a ton Chi-
No comment gets posted without me knowing about it!

I'm glad you got that "condensed epic" feeling- it's one of my favorites to get and to give.
