Yea i know guys this is a rough version but just an initial version to get the sense if could be popular or not. Give me your thoughts.... thx dave

First the story of durango dave character, he is 60 years old and ex army and bitter about his divorce, he is a constant rebel, he feels he paid his debt to society and his life savings in alamony, all thats left is him and his bike and any odd jobs he can get.



here is the first version....

One should not criticize such a person unless from one is a safe distance away. I hope Toronto is far enough away.

I like the cartoon but the character profile could turn people off. A lot of people are under stress now due to the economy and it could be hard for them to empathize unless the humourous side of the character is shown.

I think a lot of people would enjoy seeing an underdog come out on top. Maybe if the ex wife had run off with the CEO of General Motors and the character had to repo the GM jet....

I like them, the first one could also read, "She told me size didn't matter...................

He has to be an underdog people can identify with.

I liked the first one best, it's not limited to the present time, and it's short. I think the best cartoons are the ones that make an ironic point with few words.

It's got a lot of potential. And it's good to scoff in the face of "Political Correctness" once in a while. There's way too much of that and not enough straight shootin'. Good luck with your effort.

I like him, maybe he could poke a little fun at some of us time and again.

I don't know about others, but I wouldn't mind:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:
