Horatio and Dumbledore

Shortly after J. K. Rowling announced Albus Dumbledore was gay, I wrote and illustrated the following strips. It stars Horatio Algiers, a duck postal worker. These were originally posted several years ago on this blog, but I thought they deserved their own post in sequential order:

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.

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.
