A comic creator is playing bingo with his syndicate submissions.
DailyCartoonist.com reported that Aaron Johnson sent his “What the Duck” strip last Thursday to Creators Syndicate, King Features Syndicate, Tribune Media Services, United Media, Universal Press Syndicate, and the Washington Post Writers Group.
Then Johnson created a bingo board — which can be seen here — listing the six syndicates and six possible responses: “Love it,” “Form letter,” “Try again,” “It’s no ‘Garfield,'” “Hate it,” and “Kill yourself.” (Obviously, Johnson took at least one humorous liberty.)
Cartoonists can wait anywhere from days to weeks to months to get a syndicate response, so the bingo board might not be filled for a while.
“What the Duck” is currently self-published online. The daily comic (http://www.WhatTheDuck.net) is about photographers and photography.
