What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger.
@Readers- Sometimes I do a run of jokes between Johnny and a specific character, almost as if they'd be running consecutively in a daily paper (each one building on the last, a bit). Considering that I only post 3 times a week, do you like a recurring theme, or do you prefer having the characters and situations mixed up (like usual)?By the way, in case anyone thinks I was being lazy and using the same art twice, note that the angel is in a subtly different position in the third panel. Here at Johnny Optimism, quality is Job One.
I enjoy having situations mixed up from one post to the next, but you just can't beat a building theme that ends with a terrific punchline! Keep up the great work with Johnny Optimism and with Hope'n Change!
Do both. Love the angel character.
@Old Fort Howard Guy- Glad you're enjoying the strips! Some Johnny set-ups seem to lend themselves well to "one offs" which are best when stirred into the general mix. But every now and then, I'll come across a scenario that is fun to let build day by day (for instance, there's a series I haven't shown yet in which Gabriel comes to Johnny and is prepared to blow his horn...so there's a little urgency involved).@Earl- If you're happy, I'm happy. And by the way, that's really what angels look like. Johnny told me so, and he never lies. Although he does take some powerful medications...
