'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': Et tu, IMOGEN? Here's the backstory that just 'kills'

By Michael Cavna


Here's today's "IMOGEN QUEST" comic from Olivia Walch, the 21-year-old winner of The Post's "America's Next Great Cartoonist Contest." So, what's the story behind the comic?

"Another classical civilization one!" Walch tells Comic Riffs. "I was watching a lot of BBC murder mysteries during August, and thought it would be hilarious if the time-of-death-from-broken-clock cliche was used with a sundial.

"No one agreed with me," she continues. "This overly wordy cartoon is the result."

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

Overly wordy INDEED, Ms. Walch.

You can only get better from here!
