'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': Walch's story behind today's 'IMOGEN QUEST' strip

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 what can we read into seeing this new character Jenny for the second straight day?

"Another Jenny-and-the-Wizard [is] included to blur the line between 'gag-a-day' comics and those with regular characters," Walch tells Comic Riffs.

And, she adds, "Just so everyone knows: I am now accepting submissions for Wizard catchphrases."

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

I have really enjoyed watching Olivia's debut. It is always great to see someone new break into this business. It is SO hard to do.

Count your blessings Olivia and work hard. Some of us would give an arm and a leg to be where you are... left arm of course. I cannot draw if I gave my right arm. Heck, some say I cannot draw at all but I am rambling now...

Great Job Olivia!

I hope I'm correct in my observation that 'the wizard' never really affects any change.
