Here are a few newspaper strips I drew back in fourth grade, all from a series called "Dork and Jake" that I continued (in the form of longer stories) until about 9th grade. In fact, the character from my experimental comic "Final" (and the one I'm working on now, "I Can't Help You") is directly based off the Dork character. Looks-wise, anyhow.
I actually submitted an even older version of this comic strip to Universal Press Syndicate back then, seriously expecting they'd hire me. I got a form rejection letter in return, if I remember correctly. I sent the originals.
