Here's the 1st Melba Snarch comic. I don't really have any plans or ideas for others, but I never planned on doing more than one of any of the other comics either, so who knows. It's nice to have a little arsenal of characters, just in case.

This was the original version, but I worried it insulted the reader by making things too obvious. It's difficult to say if there's a difference between clarity and obviousness.


  1. KW: Is that job still available ? One of my favorite songs to sing at work is: "I'm beautiful-I'm beautiful- I'm beautiful dammit !"

    Love the attention to detail with the Newspaper, re: "Don't have to go down stairs."

  2. It's the first of all your comics where I felt just a twinge (mind you, just "a" twinge) of sadness for the character.
    Melba... your beauty is in your personality! Love that last name too!

    I think the job is still available. For some reason nobody's snapped it up yet. Your song is very inspirational!

    Thanks for the kind words. Snarch has the power to induce pity! Woohoo!

  4. poor melba...she is good enough and gosh darnit people do like her....:)

    sorry..i couldn't resist since the mirror is there!

  5. Thanks Willy, I read that name in the obituary column, no lie!

  6. Good to know I'm not the only one who reads those things!
