The Joseph Comics

by josephcomics
Launched in 2003, "The Joseph Comics" became the first minimal comic strip series by amateur cartoonist Joseph Scarbrough.

The comic centered around fifteen-year-old Joseph Armstrong - just you're typical, average, American teenager who just so happens to get himself in and out of random situations that give way to continuing adventures with serial cliffhangers much like the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show that inspired the comic (which itself adopted said format from old movie serials that were popular at the time).

In 2004, the comic experienced a minor revamp, and carried on until 2008 (the comic went through a print run from 2003 to 2006, then a secondary web run up till 2008), thus making Joseph and his friends find their place in the Old Cartoon Stars Retirement Home permanently.

Haha. So this is what office life is really like is it! Haha
Lovely art, I can see how enthusiastic you were by the King Features touch. haha
I was going to come back and read this one later but as you've only done a few pages I might as well finish what I started.
This one felt quite personal so I'm wondering if as you hint here, it was actually inspired by your own job. Interesting that you abandoned it so quickly though and from your editorial it sounds like you lost heart pretty quick.
Curiously enough, having read all three of your comics now I really felt your heart was mostly in your earliest MASH comic as the scripting and art show so much more enthusiasm and dedication.
I'd certainly love to see more of your work and maybe another TV spin-off would be the way to go as you really capture the faces so well.
While this wasn't the next strip chronilogically, I wanted to finish this strip in particular; in my opinion, I believe this illustrates a perfect example of how "edgier" the Mr. Huggy Wuggy spin-off was to be compared to other works of mine.

Not a total loss though... the dialogue came up in a really twisted internet roleplay I was once a part of, lol.
