#18 - Eleventeen

Stripes #18 (11-30-06)

To fully appreciate this joke you need to understand that Cubby is usually a moron. This strip might whiz over the heads of new readers but are great are Stripes veterans. Doesn't that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

#17 - Best Day Ever

Stripes #17 (11-28-06)

In the tradition of milking birthdays for all they're worth, this is the start of the first real Stripes series. The next two weeks will be continuing this story. Stay tuned.

This strip also marks the first time all four starring characters have been featured together.

#16 - You're a Loser, Charlie Brown

Stripes #16 (11-21-06)

Harvard lost for the first time in six years. I'm not bitter...

#14 - #@$% JetBlue...

Stripes #14 (11-16-06)

JetBlue ran a promotion last week at several college campuses across the country. Students wearing blue might be approached by a JetBlue rep who would ask them, "Go what?" If the student replied with "Go blue!" they won a free flight.
Since this was the week before the great Harvard-Yale game, a lot of Harvard students went into a frenzy thinking this was a Yale prank to get Harvard kids on tape yelling "Go blue!"

Turns out the promotion was legit, but I have no need for a one-way ticket to NYC or DC anyway. Besides, you could never get me to say "go" and "blue" in the same sentence. Except just now.

#13 - A Whole New Style!

Stripes #13 (11-14-06)

Shout out to my homies in the Teen Girl Squad. Who caught the reference?

Also, no one actually told me they thought Cubby wasn't sketchy enough. But as Stephan Pastis says, "What the strip needs, the strip gets."

#12 - Angry Animals

Stripes #12 (11-9-06)

Stephan Pastis once wrote how he could never really tell which of his strips would be popular and which ones wouldn't. I think the same thing applied here - I wrote this one rather quickly, but people seemed to like it when it was published.

#11 - Hell Hath No Fury...

Stripes #11 (11-7-06)

Poor Audrey. Actually, poor Twitchy - he's about to get sacked...

Realistically, guys and girls can't room together at Harvard. I think there's a committee actually discussing it, but really I just wanted to put Audrey in with the other characters. It's not like she'd associate with any of them by choice...or would she? Stay tuned.

#10 - Hi there, Audrey!

Stripes #10 (11-3-06)

For some reason I can draw people as long as it isn't me. This marks the first appearance of Audrey, our fourth character.

#9 - TV

Stripes #9 (11-2-06)

People kept thinking Cubby was a cat, not a tiger, so I wanted to clear that up. It was presented in The Crimson on its side because that was the only way I could make everything fit. But, lucky you, it's put vertically here.
