The Washington Post Writers Group has picked up It’s All About You by Tony Murphy and will be launching the feature on December 31st.
From the description on the syndicate’s site,
The YouTube generation meets Seinfeld in It’s All About You, a new daily and Sunday comic strip by Tony Murphy. “The strip’s title is sort of a joke in itself,” says Murphy. “It’s really all about me. But to the extent that you can relate to it, it’s all about you, too.”
Murphy’s persona in the strip is a caffeine-craving neurotic named Michael who is in a long-term, pre-marriage relationship with his well-balanced, herbal-tea-drinking girlfriend. “Michael epitomizes today’s mentality – I call it the push-me-pull-you mindset,” explains Washington Post Writers Group Comics Editor Amy Lago. “We’re obsessed with how we appear to the rest of the world, yet desperate to win acceptance strictly by being ourselves.”
It’s All About You ran for two years in Boston and New York’s free Metro newspapers before being picked up by The Washington Post Writers Group. Tony is currently a proofreader at DC Comics.
