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!

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.

I liked both of them, but this one was pretty funny. The added dialogue did add to the humor.

This one seemed different just because of the dialogue. Still pretty funny.
