Jenny Has Six Brothers, Strip 01

So it's been one week since the comic strips I did for the Halifax Chronicle Herald stopped running (it was a 12 week run, ending last Sunday), and I'm now allowed to post them online. So yay, you guys get to see them. There are twelve strips in total, and I've decided to post one a day for the next twelve days. The strips are in colour with the exception of the first one, as I just can't seem to find the colour version of it for some reason ... I've no idea where it went. Lost in the bowels of my computer, I suppose. Anyway, I would love comments and stuff, so if you want to comment, please do.

I didn't have a plan for the strip, only characters (one girl, six brothers, all under the age of 10. Don't ask me how that's possible), so started out with a bit of a Calvin & Hobbes rip off, and then veered off somewhere weird, then realized I had to wrap the whole thing up in one strip, due to poor planning. Hah. Anyway, it was a very interesting experience, doing a comic strip for a newspaper, and a nice thing to have on the resume. Originally I was asked to do the strip for a year, but I didn't have the time, so 12 weeks was the compromise.
Without further ado, here's the first strip of Jenny Has Six Brothers (it was called Jenny's Brothers in the paper, but I like the longer title). Click the cut for comics.



Strip 02 will be posted tomorrow for all you lucky people. Oh, and it'll be in colour too.
