I’d been producing Arlo and Janis five years when this strip first appeared. My figure drawing had improved noticeably. The theme still being heavily exploited at the time, Janis’ insecurity, had been present since the beginning.
I think I’m going to institute a poll. I don’t mean an everyday kind of thing that asks questions like, “Who would you rather be snowed in with, Charlie Sheen or Emilio Estevez?” I mean a useful poll to be used sparingly, one that would explore questions such as, “Do you prefer continuing story lines in A&J or the stand-alone gag?” Now, I wonder how I could conduct such a poll.
