This was the strip for the Dec. issue of Flint Comix. The quality was a little off, so I am reprinting it here. This is also the very first Oddbox with any color in it. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
And now for a special treat, Surewould Forest in its entirety! (Of course, in “a couple of days” increments.) Sadly, this also was rejected by the syndicates. However, Flint Comix, the Genesee County Herald, and the Lakeview Enterprise liked it enough to publish it. Enjoy!
Randy Zimmerman, the editor of Flint Comix and Entertainment, came to me and said, “Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won’t you lead my sleigh tonight?”, and I replied, “My name is Bob.” At any rate, I told him that I had no experience whatsoever with sleighs or anything like that, but what I could do is the cover for the December issue of Flint Comix. He said that would be fine, but he still needed a good sleigh-person. I told him that I would ask around, but good luck trying to get anybody to work on Christmas Eve.
