My first "sale."
You'll notice the style of this strip differs significantly from that of those bookending it. That's because I redrew it specifically for inclusion in the "Man from UNCle" book I published in 1998. I had hung onto all the originals through the years, but this one had been requested by a tutor shortly after it appeared in the DTH. They offered to pay for it, but I demurred, suggesting they trade me a six-pack of beer. In those days, beer was more valuable than money--and harder for a freshman to obtain.
