16 - Comic number 14, the 'Epic' comic strip was created more as an excuse to use an Indian head test pattern than as a serious jab at the other cartoonist. This one however was definitely designed as a jab at "Hanging Around" which usually right directly to the right of "Coed Ninja".
As far as I can tell "Hanging Around" is a 'gimmick' comic strip, and the gimmick is that he traces photographs. Usually photographs of a domo-kun
and uses it for his artwork. This was my way of showing off that I could trace Domo-kun too. Notice the oh-so-subtle inclusion of the word "trace" in the caption.
I never submitted this strip to the connector. Perhaps I should have, the creator of "Hanging Around" might have gotten a kick out of it.
