When new won't do, try shopping for a used comic strip.
This idea is for those who have longed to develop a comic strip, but found that the time and expense to develop a quality effort prohibitive. Consider adapting one that has already been done.
         About 10,000 are submitted to newspaper syndicates each year. Of that number, less than a dozen ever make the funny pages. Even more interesting is the fact that an average submission includes six weeks worth of finished work. That's 42 finished comic strips or six 4-color Sundays and 36 black and white dailies.
         In case you haven't noticed, this sample strip is an adaption of an existing work that deals with an entirely different subject. To create Marketing Animals, I simply picked up the existing line drawings from another strip called Meetings. By using the computer to recompose elements and rewrite copy, a new message to an entirely different audience was accomplished in a reasonable amount of time.
         Of course, to find the right artist, an Internet search for related key words such as "comic strips" is the right starting place. With just a few well directed e-mail proposals, you should soon be reviewing promising prospective samples from some top talent.


Comic strips can make tough issues easier to face.
When the information that needs to be dispensed is sensitive, there are easier and softer ways to make it palatable. This comic strip wants to help make the world a better place by creating positive awareness of groups like Alcoholics Anonymous. For those addicts and alcoholics who feel hopeless about their options, it gleefuly shows that there is life after recovery. Approved by the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information, it serves as a most gentle introduction to 12 step programs.
