HenryVille is a comic strip l developed over 12 months ago and haven't had a chance yet to see if anyone wants to publish it. The strip follows Henry and his 'unique' friend Monkey as they go about changing the world. The strips are designed to work both as single gags on their own, but also develop together as an extended tale and entice the reader to return to the comic like a soap opera. Something l thought was missing from the current disposable wasteland of commercial cartoons being published. (Generally comics these days l find to be just throw away one-liners, which is why l think they've been de-valued and their page sizes steadily decreased over the years.)

This sample is one of the first strips l wrote while l was still developing the characters and the greater plot line.
