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.”
