Are You Reading Ollie & Quentin?

Are you reading Ollie & Quentin? If you're not, you certainly should be!! It is a gem of a strip that never fails to make me chuckle.

Piers Baker, the creative force behind the Laurel and Hardy styled antics of Ollie (a seagull) and Quentin ( a lugworm) has put up a very important post here about the future of his strip. Go read it and then make some noise about it!!!

When MyCage was cancelled there was a lot of moaning and groaning and gnashing of teeth directed at King Features for canceling it. That strip had a lot of fans but newspaper editors were not picking it up. If you like a strip, you - the fan - have a big obligation these days to make your voice heard. And if you cannot get your local newspaper editor to listen, you can at least make - yes, I said MAKE, the time to subscribe to your favorite strips on dailyink.

If you are a fan who loves a strip like Ollie & Quentin - don't run around reading it on the internet for free. PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS, MAN UP, AND PAY THE #@$%ING $19.99 A YEAR TO SUBSCRIBE TO IT!!!!

I'll give you a little taste of O & Q and then you should toddle over to the dailyink site and get the strip sent to your email every day or else sign up for the iphone app.

(And subscribe to Edison, too while you're at it..........)


  1. So kind, both of you, thanks for the wonderful plug. If all else fails I know that the clever and funny creators of The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee liked my comic. That says a lot.

  2. We are pulling for you!!

    BTW - you might want to read the Village Voice article posted on the Daily Cartoonist. It is anything but uplifting but does explain a few things about the impecunious state of cartoonists.
