Same Old Same Old


Fraser here for a change. Here's a link to the site I post the occasional "Same Old Same Old" strip. Its a strip about working in the same office with the same people day-in-day-out and the resentful closeness you inevitably develop with people you don't even really like.

The strip is based on an experiment I did a few years ago when I took a single Scott Adams Dilbert strip and re-wrote it 50 different ways. For a writer who can't draw but loves doing comic strips the idea of a static three or four panels you can re do in many different ways is very appealing. Thanks to Iain for doing the art on this.
