Judge Parker Process
A shot of last week's dailies in progress on the strip. Godiva may be gone off to film, but she's not out of the drama. This is a doozy of a storyline having lasted a year in my life but only a few days in JP time. The trolls on the message boards are having a fit, but they always do, and don't count as real fans or readers--if they are unhappy, that means we are doing things right--never make a troll happy! Got some very nice fans mail the last few weeks about my work on the strip from some long time JP fans, which is great. Some have been reading it since the 60's---that's a real life long fan!
