Happy Belated National Lollipop Day!

Sorry for the delay. I had originally wanted to post this back in July in observance of National Lollipop Day, but I got busy with work, and Dental Appointments, and family stuff and just kept putting it off. So tonight as I'm cleaning off the desktop, I thought I'd get it up here for y'all to enjoy. Especially since I haven't posted any new art in a few months.

This was originally drawn as a parody of those little religious tract comics published by Jack Chick. You can read the real things on-line, and order your own copies here:

I decided to incorporate the old Tootsie Pop commercials into my parody. If you are a young'un, you might not remember the little boy asking Mr. Owl and Mr. Turtle "How many Licks does it take to get to the center of Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?" You can watch that old commercial at Tootsie Roll's website:

Tootsie Roll even has a place for you to submit your own official count of How many Licks it took you. I sent in my count, and a couple weeks later, a surprise! I got a neat Certificate in the mail authenticating my tally. (158 licks on a Cherry pop)

So anyway... Here is "TAKE YOUR LICKS" in its entirety for your enjoyment. If you really like it, click on the "Shop for My comics" link over there to the right, and order a copy from my paypal store. I also have the original art available (the seven pages you see here) for purchase. Inquire.
