In Panel One, if you look at the spinner rack of comics, you will see a comic book titled “ROB & CHELI”. ROB & CHELI is a comic strip I did from about 1998 to 2001 which is a strip about my wife, Cheli, and myself as little children. During that time, I made a little over 100 strips which ran in a weekly Arizona newspaper.
During that time, I would send exampes of ROB & CHELI to newspaper syndications, but was never accepted. Nowadays, it is so easy to bypass the traditional syndication publication and go the webcomic route. Maybe someday I will return to making ROB & CHELI or another comic strip and posting it online.
When I stopped making ROB & CHELI in 2001, I printed up a comic book of all of my strips and gave the comic to family and friends. Here is the comic cover and a sample of the strips:
