    Here is a color version of the Okrapolis strip I posted a few weeks ago.

    I will resume Charmy’s Army later this week.

    Thanks. My mother-in-law passed away and I was tending to my family’s needs during her illness and passing. Family first.

    My time on Sherpa is up in a few weeks… but I think I will splurge for 6 more months before leaving. I was only going to stay if there was a cahnce GoComics might pick me up… but a few sources there told me that there is no chance. They just don’t like ol’ Charmy. That’s okay. I know there is a huge market out there for my humor. I’ll syndicate myself if I have to.

    Ok, that sucketh, yea, verily! I think you have a great comic! I am sorry for your loss, too. Go Comics loss if they don’t like you…

    Thanks! I would be fibbing if I stated that I only do this strip for fun. I need to be syndicated within five years or else I am going to admit defeat. Five years sounds like a long time until you consider that I have wanted this for about 40 years… Then again, I have only been actively trying for the last seven years. Beginning to think I am just not good enough… and if that’s the case, I know that I at least gave my dream a shot and I can live with that… and be happy happy happy in knowing that fact. It is better than always asking myself “what if”? lolol….

    Condolences.

    I can’t think of why GC wouldn’t want to pick it up, but I’ll be here as long as Charmy is. Good luck and as I said on the original of this toon, the karma bank is always open for withdrawals as needed.

    Thanks.

    I can see why they wouldn’t want Charmy. It just isn’t the type of strip they market. Sometimes I wonder if trying to be different and original is a good thing. I’d hate to have half my jokes revolve around lasagna or kicking a football…. lol……

    I want to do a strip about adventures. This is what I am being told is wrong with my strip. It is not one that can be easily followed or understood. I focus on too many characters. It is all AWESOME advice… but I really love the complexity of this strip. They took great time and detail in explaining it all, and maybe one day I will simplify things. But for now, I am going to stick with the plan at hand.

    @David Jones

    I must be a freakin’ genius. I have no problem following OR understanding your toon. Some of the arcs may be longer than a few toons but really?

    They’re nuts. They just don’t like big noses.

    @Plods with Beer ( did I mention beer? )

    Lol… They actually have a point… much like Charmy’s nose. My strip is hard for someone to jump in and read once a week… or twice a week without feeling lost. That said, Bloom County wrote this way and so did Peanuts early on. I think the way I am taking this strip is the correct way and I am going to stick with it… for now. They were extremely kind in their words to me and let me know I have great potential. I just don’t have the “hook” they are looking for right now.
