A few years back, I helped out my buddy Derrick Wood with his strip Rogue Symmetry. Derrick had injured himself somehow… what was it… I believe it had something to do with drinking and trimming trees with a chainsaw. No wait, that was my uncle Buford. No, I think Derrick had sneezed violently while nail clipping his drawing hand… Nope, that was my cousin Jerry. I am sure it was Derrick’s hand though because he couldn’t draw for a month or so. Wait, I remember… Derrick was arm wrestling his six year old daughter and she cracked a bone in his hand. I;ll stick with that one. Gotta be it.
Derrick’s Rogue Symmetry is a immensely popular strip on Comics Sherpa. This guy has probably the biggest following out of all the Sherpa strips. So when he asked cartoonists for help, I saw a great opportunity to get some of his readers to check out Charmy’s Army. Well, that and I wanted to help him out of a jam… but mostly to steal away some readers. I wrote and illustrated the single panel comic strip featuring Batman, Flash and Superman… which was TOUGH because I don’t do single panel strips. The quick gag has never been my specialty. I write stories… not jokes.
