UJ Guest Comics

Over the years I’ve done exactly 4 guest comics for friend-of-the-comic cartoonist David Wilborn’s Urban Jungle.

David and I started our webcomics at roughly the same time, and I’ve been super pleased to help him out with a guest comic the few-plus-one times I’ve done it. Especially since he’s a real cartoonist with a real comic, and I am/have neither of those things.

I was comicking — I swear — but then I didn’t like how the comic was turning out, so I ditched it. But by then I had no time to start over on a new one. So no comic. I’ve been stripped of my title of Comic King after all my fruitless comicking.

Turns out there’s no comic today, sorry about that. However, since we’re all still looking at my stale 80s Juicy Fruit reference, I sought out a video of the commercial in question. Here’s a pretty good presentation of it:

Dewey Defeats Tarzan is one year old!
Yesterday, had its first anniversary. Let’s celebrate with a graph that shows comic distribution by type and takes you to a random comic when you click it. Whoo!
awesome graph
As you can see, the first year was 60% strips and 40% single-panels, and just over 10% were in color. There was exactly one comic that was in color and also a strip.
