ORIGINAL NICKEL ARCADE ARTWORK
All artwork by Brent Smith.
Early experiments with the Nickel Arcade concept, in which the basic formula is established.
Attempts at two-panel comics. Notice that the characters have now developed what some devoted readers call "observational humor".
The characters express their own distaste at their lack of mobility.
The characters are replaced by cardboard cutouts as a cost-cutting measure. Most readers don't even notice.
