Conundrum - An Early Comic Strip

This is a comic strip I created while I was living in New York, called Conundrum. It was never published; I created it mostly to enhance my skills and practice my story telling. It had four main characters: Cuthbert, the sad-sack character for whom nothing ever goes right (especially with girls), Dirk Deadmeat, Ace Private Eye, who is an insufferable chauvinist who sees himself as a ladies man, Streeter, the intellectual, and Lily, the sensible female voice of the strip. Despite my attempt to keep it G-rated, it does get a tad edgy at times, probably too edgy for a commercial newspaper, which is just as well. It wouldn't stand a chance against stale relics like Blonde, Hi and Lois and Beetle Bailey.
