Sunday Funnies

For the past several weeks, I've been sharing Norm Feuti's Origami Man cartoons which he reposted on his site back in 2007-2008, after lasting for only about 24 strips.  Here's what he wrote on July 3, 2008:

I’m considering developing Origami Man as a web-only feature, and I’d like to hear from anyone who cares to voice an opinion on the matter.
Here’s what I have in mind.
It would start as a 3-day a week feature, because I doubt if I would be able to pull off more than that on top of my Retail workload. Mon/Wed/Fri seems to be the norm for a lot of web features.  If it generated enough interest/was profitable, I could increase that … but I wouldn’t make any promises.  I fully expect this to be free work for some time.
I’d be starting the feature over again from scratch in a larger format. If I’m going to do something on the web, I’m at least going to give myself more room to draw. The premise of the strip would remain the same, but I’d rewrite most of the strips … it wouldn’t just be new artwork for the ones I’ve already shown on this blog.
I’d be tackling this from the standpoint of an experimental venture. The content would be free, but ultimately the site would have to generate some revenue through merchandise and whatnot.  If it works out, great.  If it doesn’t … well I’d just stop doing it.  No harm, no foul.

Even though it's been a number of years since he wrote that blog entry, if you care to see a revival of this strip, leave him a comment.
