I used to run a comic called “Robbie” in my high school newspaper. It’s been a long time since I thought about him… it helps that everything I did in high school was complete and utter shit. Still, I get as nostalgic as the next person. Enough, in this case, to make a couple strips to answer the question no one ever asked (because why would they) of what Robbie would be like if I made it today.

For a reference point, here’s what an original-run* Robbie was like:

*This particular one never ran though.
