Average American Adventures

I would like to see a comic strip serious about a average American man and his life of going to work and life in general. It wouldn't contain comedy but just the honest look into his daily life and everything he has to put up with. He would always been in a drab grey suit and tie. Have glasses and a comb-over. His watch would be on his right hand. The first series would begin with him sitting in his old car on his way o work being stuck in traffic.
  • The first scene it is just a box that shows his steering wheel and two hands on the top.
  • The second box is him slowly raising his head from being bent over.
  • The third box is him continuing to raise his head
  • The fourth box is him with his head fully raised and staring blankly out the window.
  • The fifth box is him with a bubble cloud above his head (none of the comics will ever show him speaking). In the box he says. "I wonder what a forest smells like"?
  • The sixth box is just him staring again matching box number 1. (there are always only 6 comic squares).
Each week there is a new one with 6 sqaures, and only one bubble cloud and his one thought. They will take place at home, and the office, in the car, and other places as well. Wethink that we will laugh, but the reality hits home hard for most of us how miserably accurate the comic strip is and because of this we find a connection only wanting to read the next weeks strip.

Falling Down? Will he then get out of his car and start a city wide rampage?
Nope it's the simplicity of the comic strip that allow you to use your own imagination. For example another one would be like:

  • The first scene it is just a box that shows his backside to a copier machine.
  • The second box is him standing in front of the copy machine and you can see the light from the copy machine hitting his face.
  • The third box is him continuing from the backside of the copy machine.
  • The fourth box is him looking at his own reflection in the copy machines maker's chrome emblem
  • The fifth box is him with a bubble cloud above his head (none of the comics will ever show him speaking). In the box he says. "I wonder what salt in the ocean taste like"?
  • The sixth box is just him standing from the back of the copy machine matching box number 1. (there are always only 6 comic squares).
