Poptropica!

By Paul | June 11, 2014

Hey, guess what?  I’m writing a second comic strip!  It’s a comic based on the webgame “Poptropica” written by me and delightfully drawn by the aptly named Kory Merritt.  Here’s the write-up:

About Poptropica

The Poptropica comic strip follows the hilarious adventures of two mismatched boys, Oliver and Jorge, who unexpectedly find themselves in a strange world of endless islands, each inhabited by it’s own unique residents. Frankensteins, dinosaurs, balloon animals, penguin pirates, the boys come across anything and everything as they pop from island to island looking for a way to get back home.


CAST:

Oliver is one of the popular kids, although that’s not as easy as you might think.  He feels the need to keep the fact that he’s smart hidden so as not to lose “cred”.  Also, females keep falling in love with him because of his “perfect hair”.  He’s good natured and always up for an adventure.

Jorge is sort of the opposite.  But even though he’s out of shape, easily rattled, and allergic to everything under the sun, he’s the self-proclaimed expert at whatever task they come across.  He also exclusively eats junk food, which is sort of a problem when you’re on tropical islands.

And here’s the first strip:

Cheers! — Paul

    Wow, how great is that! I imagine it is a little different collaborating with someone. Is there a lot of brainstorming going on between the two of you as to the story plotline and how the drawings will interact with it? It seems it would be complicated at times.
    Good luck and all the best to you and Cory on this new adventure.

    Thanks Bob! It’s fun to stretch different comic-writing muscles.
