The Hairless Elbonian

The Hairless Elbonian is an experimental comic by Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.

The experimental aspect is that I blatantly "borrowed" every successful cartooning technique I've ever seen (except for good artwork) and threw it into the mix. For example, comics about little boys with pets tend to be popular across all demographic groups, whereas comics about little girls have limited appeal to young males. Hence, The Hairless Elbonian is a boy. In other words, it 's an engineered comic strip devoid of any artistic integrity whatsoever. I was curious whether I could make that work. You be the judge.
