'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': You want the story behind today's 'Imogen Quest'? FINE!
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, be it passive or aggressive, behind this comic?
"I think this is one of the ones that never really came together the way I wanted it to, which is a bummer," Walch tells Comic Riffs. "To effectively communicate the working-out-passive-aggression-instead-of-aggression joke [in the way I imagined], there needed to be: 1) a stronger initial establishment of the setting and characters; and 2) many more uncomfortable silences. Llike, a page's worth of uncomfortably silent panels.
"Maybe," she continues, "I could have tied the elements together in a better way if I'd had more support and encouragement from my worthless friends. ... I'm just kidding."
If you have feedback about "Imogen Quest's" monthlong run in Style and on Comic Riffs, feel free to share your impressions.
