Today marks the one month anniversary of Flatt Bear.

This is the part where I write about what a wild ride it’s been.  How the syndicates are all fighting over who gets the publish the strip, or how I’m setting up a booth next to Marvel Comics at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con.  But won’t… well I can’t.  And that’s really OK.

Because what I can write about is more important.  I can write how truly thankful I am for those who chose to show up three times a week for the last month to read the strip. You’ve all been incredibly receptive, positive, and supportive of my efforts and give me encouragement to continue on.  I can also write how I absolutely enjoy creating this strip.  It has, for the most part, been effortless to write and draw.  I can write what a joy it has been to be able to do this project after dreaming about it for so many years.  As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to draw and publish a comic strip with the single goal: to entertain.  Thanks to all of you and the modern technology, it’s happening.

 

Where do I go from here?

Full steam ahead.  Over the next weeks and months I bring you more stories, jokes, puns, and introduce more of the cast.  We’ll get to know Duff and Carl and what exactly is Flatt Bear.

 

Let’s celebrate!

So as a gift to you and celebration for the one month anniversary, I will reveal a spoiler for you in the current story arc:  Duff and Carl eventually get out of the tree.  But where do they go from there?  The ground? A shrub? Another tree?  That You’ll have to keep showing up to find out.

 

Thanks again and let’s have some fun!!!
