What Is Watson?


WATSON is a weekly web-comic that updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It features a cast of elementary-school children and the ever-watchful dog, Watson, who is the quiet center of their spiritual universe.

castWatson is unique in that it is conceived and drawn as a One-Panel Narrative: a comic strip of only one frame that uses reoccurring characters and themes to create a familiar world of engaging, singular moments. As a comic strip, Watson deals with the subtleties of experience; the moments of doubt, realization, oddity, forgiveness, and love that people experience on a daily basis. While paying homage to traditional “print strips” in newspapers, Watson is something very new: It’s an online strip that celebrates the History of Comics with a renewed spirit of hope, joy, and whimsy. Watson is big and bright, colorful, and fun. – It’s “old school” in its best “new school” format.

For Comic Strip Lovers!

WATSON is ABSOLUTELY a comic strip for comic strip lovers! While some of Watson’s strips are sentimental and sweet, others are goofy and bizarre, and having artists from other comic strips drop in to do “cameo days” is definitely the norm. More than just a comic strip of ideas, Watson is a visual celebration of the past and future of comic strips.
