Stumble It!
Support Horatio!

This was a weekly comic strip that chronicled the adventures of Horatio Algiers, and friends, as they battled the insanity of the Amalgamated Regions Postal Service. It is now retired!

Horatio Special - The Thrift Store

Once in a while I'll draw strips that aren't necessarily canon. Here's the first one:

Snail Mail (Alt Version)

I wrote an alternative version to this weeks strip. It's the exact same gag, but with the added dynamic that actual dialogue provides.

Additional Comment: I didn't mention it previously, but the slowness of traditional mailing has been a subject of comic strip jokes for years. Inevitably the snail is used as a replacement for the USPS's proud eagle logo. Because it was tired, I had to make my own. Perhaps I did it for the same reason every comedian has their own version of the Aristocrats. However, unlike the Aristocrats, I think I came up with something familiar yet unique.

Snail Mail

Okay, admittedly this was an experimental narrative. It was inspired by Sergio Aragones, the creator of Groo and long time contributor to Mad Magazine.

The Problem With Pigeons

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but these characters are named Short Terrorist and T&T Ali. I thought you should know.

Horatio may be late!

Sorry folks. Horatio may be late this week. Check back by FRIDAY for sure! I've been ill off and on and have had a very sore back ache (which has interfered with my sleep). In the meantime, I hope this will tide you over. It won't, but I can hope. It's my, and Horatio's, different world selves mixed and matched.

Duck Playing Poker pt. 2

My first and, perhaps, last "Sunday" strip. It's a lot more work, but perhaps necessary if I want portray a lot of detail. Like it? Hate it? Sometimes? Always? Never?

Rage Against the Machine! pt. 4

Can anyone guess which movies are quoted in panel 2 and 3? First right answer wins my coveted "Big Deal, Everyone Should Know That" award.

Management pt. 4

I can't say I've ever done this for payback. My lawyer won't let me.

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Management Pt. 3

Just in case you didn't know that big black mat with the white circles is a keyboard. Hey, lay off! It's harder to draw than it looks.

Management Pt. 2

I was barely able to drag myself over to the computer to finish this. The flu is going on day five as of this Friday (It started Sunday night). My fever broke Thursday morning, but I'm still really sick. My work is going to hate that I'm out this long, but in the interest of my health (that is to say, my interest as they don't have any) they can like it or lump it! And knowing my managers, they're all summarily lumping my absence as we speak.

The Flu

Last night I fever dreamed that my flu symptoms were U-shaped. What does that even mean? I couldn't tell you. Somewhere in my overheated brain meats it made sense, and so for 12 straight hours of fitful sleep I traced these U's in my mind. I don't know why fever dreams are so monotonous. It's like being stuck on the same scene in a dvd, which is played over and over. And not just any scene. I'm talking Pod Racing ala Star Wars Episode 1, or highlights from Water World.

Anyway, I just had a coughing fit and almost passed out. Horatio Algiers is postponed until Friday. If I'm not able to get to it I'll be sure to update you! I profusely apologize. Feel free to read past strips over again. It's rerun time.

If you think about it, being stared at by management for long periods of time is probably sexual harassment. Who knows what's going on in their heads. They're probably undressing us with their eyes.

Charles Darwin Vs. Ron Jeremiah

I could have had a go at any politician aspiring for the presidency. Of course I'd have had to change the text substantially. I choose to think this one was a tad more difficult, and rewarding.

We Are In Your Postal Facility Reading Your Magazines

I'd like to think Mr. "Jeremiah" would be good natured enough not to balk at being represented in comic form. I know for a fact Charles Darwin is tickled pink. Well... maybe not pink. Probably more like bleached white and wormy. I hope many young, fragile-minded, young-men and women stumbled on this strip hoping to see naughty bits, only to discover the only thing naughty going on is my cheeky sense of humor.

Beating the Habit

Horatio Algiers, now in a new, more compact size. Better? Worse? Let me know!

Terrorism 3

What would Freud say about THIS strip? Long, erect strings attached to balding kites. I'll tell you what he'd say. He'd say, "sometimes a kite with a cheap toupee is just a kite with a cheap toupee."

Terrorism 2

Several people have commented that cocaine doesn't, in fact, give you hallucinations. My answer is, maybe you didn't get them but I sure as hell did. That is to say, I would have... If I had had some... Which I didn't... Okay, fine! It was in my nose, but I didn't inhale.
