About the strip

Back Bay is a comic strip developed for syndication for daily newspapers in 2003. I worked on it with Universal Press Syndicate for a little bit, but they ended up passing.

The characters

  • There’s a rabbit who’s innocent named Roonie.
  • And then there’s also a squirrel who’s pessimistic named Flynn.
  • Oh, and there’s ants.

They tend to get philosophical from time to time. But, you know, it’s not preachy or anything.

The cartoonist (me)

My name is Porter Mason, and I wrote and drew and inked and scanned and web designed all this myself. No one helps me do anything because they are all jerks, and anyway I have a Charles Schulz Complex. You can learn more about me if you like.
