The Cliché Dick #1

Today a dream becomes a reality.  I am posting my first ever comic strip.  

The concept is simple. There is a Detective and he can see through any overused story device or plot hole.  

The idea for “The Cliché Dick” originated while listening to the “TV Crimes Podcast.” Hosts Mikey Nuemann and Wil Wheaton review old TV shows and then charge them with crimes against entertainment for their use of hacky, uninspired and at times disingenuous story telling. The Cliché Dick #1 was inspired by EPISODE 4 BAYWATCH NIGHTS.  

In the spirit of that episode, I used as little talent, cost and time as possible.  I drew two images, each on the back of an index card.  I took pictures of the images on my phone, transferred them onto my laptop and then used PowerPoint to add the dialogue and cut, crop, copy and paste my way to the final product.  

So, if you dare, click on the image below and enjoy the first ever installment of “The Cliché Dick.” 


About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
