Comics: The King (And Queen) Of All Media

So I’m reading Wired magazine – yours truly has always been a forward-thinking guy – and there’s a shoutout to Bitstrips, a site that allows anyone to create very basic online comics. And I mean anyone, because even I figured it out. Later, I show Rosemarie my handiwork.

Me: So what do you think of the cartoon versions of ourselves?

Rosemarie: I have to admit, they do kind of look like us. What do we do with them?

Me: We could make a comic strip starring a pair of married film geeks.

Rosemarie: (long beat) I’m on it.

And so, without further ado, the premiere installment of Two, Please. Written by both of us, titled and designed by the missus.

Like it? Here’s another one.

In case the reader doesn’t work, here are links to strip one and strip two.

The idea is to do at least one a week. Although we said that about the Shamefaced podcasts, and we all remember how that turned out. But hey, we’re busy people.
