ADDANAC CITY Comics~ A Sucker Lost Every Minute

Well, as some of you can see, I’ve changed the look of the blog around a little bit. I know, I know….it took me forever to try to bring a bit of class to an otherwise uncouth collection of misguided ramblings, but sometimes I’m a slow learner. Especially when it comes to all things internet-related. I guess them’s the breaks for a Graphic Arts major who graduated in 1994 (right before that thingamajig they called a computer became all the rage). So, now, I have to learn all of the things that are currently mandatory in our higher institutions. I’ll get it. Trust me.

Now on to this ADDANAC CITY comic strip below.

I’ve always said that I love the dichotomy between Hank and Christie. When those two get together, the comedic possibilties are endless. This particular comic strip is about sharing. I suppose the moral would be:

“It’s better to give up a little than to lose everything.”

See? I got a little Confucius in me (get yer mind outta the gutter, please).

Well, I hope you enjoy the strip and I hope that Hank learned a little something about either
1) Sharing or
2) Suffering the wrath of a woman scorned.

ADDANAC CITY 9/03/08 Hank & His Report Card

Photobucket

This is one of my early strip favorites. When I started this revamp of ADDANAC CITY (the first incarnation came out in late 1994), Hank was never intended to be the epitome of a model student. He didn’t pay attention in class, he sassed his teachers, and he antagonized his principal. As a result, he received extremely pitiful grades. Christie, who is Hank’s arch-nemesis, always seems to be at the top of her class. She studies, she takes notes. Heck, she even goes for the extra-credit, thus blowing the curve.

So, needless to say, when Report Card Day arrives, Hank and Christie are at opposite ends of the educational spectrum. She loves to tease Hank about his poor marks and she especially vexes him by describing his parents’ outraged reaction. I like how this strip came out. It’s a fan-favorite, too. Most readers like the multiple ha-ha’s in this one.

I’ll be diggin’ in the crates and pulling out some of the other “platinum hits” and explaining their creations. If you have any personal faves from the official website, let me know, and I’ll post up a lil’ behind-the-scenes special on ’em. Until then, keep enjoying Hank and the rest of the gang in Addanac City.
