BEHIND THE STRIP: The real story of today's 'IMOGEN QUEST' comic

By Michael Cavna

Here's today's "Imogen Quest" comic from Olivia Walch, the winner of The Post's "America's Next Great Cartoonist Contest." So, we've got two simple questions: (1) Is Jenny going to become a central character; and (2) Would the spotlight as the new star of "Imogen Quest" be too hot for a cardigan?

"This is how I plan to end my soon-to-be-released children's book, 'Jenny and the Wizard.' " Walch tells Comic Riffs with her characteristic wit. "After the wizard disappears, Jenny --blinking tears from her eyes -- comes to realize that the power to succeed was inside her the whole time.

"Note: There is definitely a movie in this."

If you have feedback about "Imogen Quest's" monthlong run in Style and on Comic Riffs, feel free to share your impressions.

Olivia,

Fellow W&M grad here. 1985 and 1/2. (don't ask). As far as the wizard's catch phrase is concerned how about "By lucifer's beard!" or "Ye gods and little fishes!" or "I really wasn't expecting that."

Anyways good luck to you pookums.
