Here's a few strips from my webcomic Huey Kablooey. I've been doing it for a couple of years, never really putting any time into getting it out there, so I've never had any real critique. If you take a few minutes to write one then I preemptively appreciate it.
And I know about the Calvin and Hobbes thing, but I swear on a stack of Thus Spoke Zarathustra (I'm an atheist) that I didn't know about it before I named the strip... and it is based on a guy named Huey.
I'm not sure, but I think you're doing something cooler than I am now.
