Pug's Adventures

So here are the "Pug's Adventures" strips I made from December 4 - 11, 2007. Don't forget, you can click on each strip to see the full-sized version!

I rearranged the order of the strips so the Stacey/Loreen ones are all together.

The idea for this strip came from this strip about a dancing robot. The joke about a robot dancing the Charleston, not "The Robot" is probably better than my joke about a man who sleep-dances, not sleep-walks.


Puns are nice and easy to make comics out of, but there's another type of comic, which I like to call "The Depressing Comic". I realized this when reading a Peanuts anthology. Instead of having your characters tell jokes, you can get away with having them say something super-cynical or depressing. People enjoy these, somehow.

It is also super-easy to make a strip based off a cynical idea like "Disney is only making High School Musical 3 because they're super-greedy", so I decided to try writing a few of them with Loreen and Stacey. They turned out okay, but I went back to puns because they're more interesting.
