  1. I’ll have to disagree, Lucas, based on the samples in that interview. In my opinion, that strip helps prove that great art doesn’t help weak writing. Every joke was the same. A big bear’s a coward. We get it.

  2. Hi Jason,

    I appreciate your thoughts on my strip. I agree that the samples that accompany my interview may be one note. You’ve made a valid point. I hope that you’ll give it a second try and read some of the archives over at Sherpa. Hopefully you’ll find the characters more 3 dimensional.

    By the way, I checked out your site.” Buddy and Hopkins” is well done. Good job! I want to read more!

  3. I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed the retro-sweetness and strong thematic characters in this strip. It’s a throw-back, but in a good way! I want to read more!


  4. Hi Bob – thanks for the invite. While I stick to my impression of your strip, I apologize for the way I presented my critique. Rereading my post, I realize it comes across a bit rude. I will definitely check in on your strip from time to time to see the directions you take it. Best of luck.

  5. I love Molly and the Bear! I was so happy to find this interview. I love the art and the writing is hysterical!
