History Highlights of Florida

"History Highlights of Florida" ran in weekly newspapers around the state until 2010. It featured narratives about Floridian Indians, paleolithic times, wars, developers, celebrities, visionaries and even folklore.

I marketed the strips by offering 13 week packets as a package. The publishers had two options. They could re-sell the feature to local sponsors or businesses who would have their ad inserted in the final panel or, if that seemed too commercial, I would include an announcement of the following week's "coming attractions" in the panel.

After the gig ran its course, I compiled what I thought were the best strips into a coloring book. Out of print at the moment, maybe I'll republish it one of these days.

Too busy, now, though.

Anyway ... here are a few examples of the strip ... just for the fun of it.

Talk soon!
