Snibbler

Snibbler is a snail without a home save his shell.

Snibbler was my first stab at a syndicated comic strip. It is based on a comic strip I did as a teen for a community newspaper. Its central character is a snail, who slides about a weirdly barren landscape, fearful of being caught by a French chef and made into escargo.

As Jay Kennedy, of King Features, said in his personalized rejection letter, "Why don't you make a comic about a cat or a dog?" Well, I would argue that there are plenty of those. But this concept didn't have (ahem) legs, so I can see why it was rejected.

Still, it still has a weird, dark, whimsical appeal, and Snibbler paved the way for a more mobile and relateable shelled character, Huxley the turtle.
