I am super exited to announce that the GONOGO launch date has finally arrived! Launching this webcomic thing has been an obsession of mine during the entire pandemic, and it is, frankly, a relief to see it up “in lights”. A webcomic about getting to know these two guys (a Troll and a Monkey) who live under the Roosevelt Bridge (which runs over the Potomac between Virginia and DC) has been idea that I have been kicking around for almost a decade, it simply took a global pandemic to make it happen. It’s going to be the Diet Pepsi of political cartoons…not the high fructose politics of Doonsbury, but more fattening than Garfield (did I mention that strained metaphor is “on brand” for GONOGO?).
The plan for this first season is to post a new comic every other Thursday for the next year. Alternating Thursdays will feature a blog post about the previous week’s comic. Bottom line, check back Thursdays for new stuff. I will be the first to admit that I am not tech savvy, but the web gurus (Jason! Brian!) tell me that you can subscribe to GONOGO via the RSS feed button above, or by following us on Facebook and Instagram.
I want to close this intro by calling out my wife, Kate and my Father, Clark for supporting this project, getting us to today where we get to break the champagne bottle across the GONOGO hull! (insert catchphrase from episode 12 here) — Jared
