|A Really Heavy Greatcoat strip from 2005. The New Orleans branch of Jo's family take shelter in the Smiths' home after Hurricaine Katrina. Note: captions were always added at a later stage and we don't have copies of the script!|
|A strip from 2006, showing John and Jo in the future, mutated after years of exposure to illegal tipping.|
Too young to retire, but old enough to be put off starting a new enterprise from scratch, Jo faces an unnerving challenge: working out how to turn over a new leaf when you’re fiftysomething.
As a woman, I can relate! But I know for sure that she’ll be able to come up with the answer eventually. Perhaps this is the time when she’ll finally be able to realise some of her dreams!

To former socialite Blondie Boopadoop, married to the upper-crust-but-disinherited Dagwood Bumstead:
As with all the strips mentioned above, The Really Heavy Greatcoat was featured in newspapers and magazines. But now technology has changed the game. Prof. Naomi S Baron questioned whether computers, tablets and smartphones – the “new media” – are changing the way we read. We certainly had to take this into account when we launched the strip, which is why Skid Avenue is now available on the sharing platform Tapastic, and also has its own dedicated website and blog, in hopes of reaching a good number of readers.
