'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': 'Imogen Quest' takes up arms against the Swiss

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 -- if not the meta-story -- behind today's comic?

"I hope nobody from the Swiss Guard is offended," Walch tells Comic Riffs. "I feel like they have to hear these [jokes] all the time.

"As an aside," she continues, "I really wanted to keep them 'Yes' in at the end, because I think that omniscient authorial voice can be used to great comic effect."

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