Well speaking of stealing material from myself…this strip is 5 years old. This is a reconstruction of one of two strips I did in 1998 in the format that eventually became PartiallyClips. Back then, it was called Cel Block, and appeared in Mike Pederson’s entertainment magazine Scene.
There are some differences between the style I was forging then, and the style I settled on later. I think the influence of Max Cannon’s Red Meat is more evident in this early strip than in later ones. The dialog is much less true-to-life than most of the later PartiallyClips strips. Still, for a gag I wrote 5 years ago, I think it holds up pretty well.
