For more than a year now, my comic strip POLE found a new home at http://penguinsforfree.com. Right now, I publish there a new strip every Thursday in full color - feel free to come by.
Anyway, the strip came way earlier than the graphic novel THE END IS HERE, which is based on POLE. Actually, the opening scene of the novel is an extended version of the first POLE Sunday strip I ever did. I guess I was a bit bored from being family friendly all the time and needed something else, let's say something like a book about the end of the world. Um.
But the novel influenced the strip and the strip the novel and since I finished THE END IS HERE I never got tired of my all ages comic strip POLE again.
Enjoy these 12 strips here at ACT-I-VATE (some of them are not available at http://penguinsforfree.com). Read them with or without my comments. And than head over to http://penguinsforfree.com for more. (You can find a working link at my creators profile right here at ACT-I-VATE.)

POLE was created in 2005. The strip above is from that same year. You really see the difference when you look at the penguin in this strip and one I drew in the last few years. If this is called development or evolution - I can't tell.
