As a professional writer and cartoonist for more than 20 years, I have created published works and other stuff that never went beyond the initial inspiration and excitement. As I look back on certain sketches, doodles and notes, I often see missed opportunities for gags. Jokes that were “of their time” that would feel dated today. Think Tonya Harding, Joey Buttafuoco and Rodney Allen Rippy.
Ok, that’s TOO far back.
Carbon-Dated Reference is a one-panel comic strip that will serve as a “WABAC machine” to those halcyon days of pop culture history, published on a site custom-made for it: The Retroist.
So, sit back and relax with a can of New Coke or Pepsi Blue, and enjoy some yucks about Reggie Bars, AfterMASH and AOL dial-up internet.
