Here’s the original Melonpool first comic that ran on April 28, 1996. Back in those days, there weren’t many of us doing webcomics, so there was a very steep larding curve. Part of the reason I recently pulled down my archives was because I felt that this strip wasn’t exactly conducive to getting people to keep reading the 2,500 or so strips that were in the archive. It originally ran in color, but I’ve long-since lost the color files.
