The City Strip #100 – Dream Within A Dream

100strip

“Welcome to The City Strip.  Here you will find a selection of illustrated laughing squares that spotlight ignorance, irony, sarcasm and…movies, sure what the hell.”  – April 5, 2010

On April 5, 2010 CityofFilms.com changed forever.  We posted our first comic by Kevin Fraser and now two years later, we celebrate one hundred comics.  It seems like just yesterday I was asking him to make a comic with us telling him “stick with me Kevin, I’ll have you farting through silk”.  I thank Kevin each week when he sends me the latest comic, but I get the feeling he is much too humble to give it much thought.  He’s a great friend and colleague and it is with great pride we get to work with him, he’s doing great things here and we can’t wait to see what his future brings.

With #100, we sought out to express our love for movies with the gang and what better way than to layer it with references from our favorite films.  Thanks to you the readers for visiting regularly, commenting, sending us links and for just letting us have fun.  And again, thank you Kevin, let’s do it all again alright?

He is a man of few words when it comes to his work on our site but I was lucky enough to get some from him to commemorate this moment:

Well here we are everyone.  The City Strip #100.  We’re ready for syndication!  It seems like just yesterday that Graham and Ryan contacted me about putting together a comic.  They said “Kevin ya wanker, get off yer arse and draw us sum pictures!”  Thus The City Strip was born. 

In all seriousness, it’s been an incredible ride and I have both Graham and Ryan to thank for giving me the opportunity (and excuse) to draw every week.  Also, a huge thank you to each and every one of you who’ve taken the time to read these silly comics over the past one hundred strips.  Just knowing that any one of them have made someone laugh…well, that’s one of the best feelings in the world.  So thank you again and here’s to the next hundred!  Now get outta my office!
