What Was I Thinking?, continued...

I will admit if I could have just drawn (and scripted if not actually wrote) this strip without having being used as some kinda patsy for someone else's faith(?) I would have kept doing it, provided I got paid a fair rate and held half the copyright. Actually, now that I think about it, I DO own half of the copyright, I just got put-off by not being allowed the American right of freedom of religion. We should have the right to freedom FROM religion, shouldn't we? For the record, I drank 2 glasses of wine while posting this and do not feel any dumber than normal.

What was I Thinking? version 716B

Years ago I was approached by I guy who I thought was a harmless eccentric, and asked to develop a web-comic for his church. I needed the dough so I said yes. Little did I realize he was trying to convert / indoctrinate / whatever me into his fold. The strip was called "Messenger Man". I think I did a good job on the art, and I really wrote the whole thing under his "guidance"
