'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': The trippy (and true) story behind today's 'IMOGEN QUEST'

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 just how tall is this little tale?

"Any and all events described in 'Memories"'are 100 percent true," Walch tells Comic Riffs. "This other time, we had to write 500 words on the contextualization of our semiotic environment while eating orange slices in the shade. These are the things you remember years later."

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

The 'embiggen' option doesn't work - you just see the top left corner with no scroll (at least on a mac in safari and on a PC with firefox).

Great entry, though - in tiny-vision.

Yeah - I agree with bupdaddy's embiggen comment. I've been trying all month thinking it would get fixed, but bupkis. I just increase the size of this page till it's easier to read.

This strip made me laugh out loud, literally. So glad Olivia Walch won the contest!

Very sorry though, Olivia - anything that appeals to my sense of humor is bound to fail. Better luck next time. Maybe your next strip can be about a round headed kid and a lasagna eating cat.

I read it I yawned. If this was the winner how many people entered, one. Hope she discovers a sense of humor.
