Great interview, Bob.
Anyone who isn’t reading “Molly and the Bear,” should be.

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.

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!

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!

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.
