When I signed with United Media, I had three main characters: Spot, Karl, and Buddy. We decided to run with Spot and Karl for the first several weeks. Ground the strip with two characters. Buddy was constantly lurking over my shoulder, whispering punchlines -- or behind my ankle and yelling them -- waiting to appear. I was glad when February 3 arrived, along with Buddy. Tripods are sturdier than just two legs.
