About the strip

Johnny the Mediocre Human is a comic strip that appeared daily in the Duke University Chronicle from 1997 through 1999.

It also appeared in a larval form in school newsletters at Frank W. Cox High School in Virginia Beach, VA in 1993 and 1994.

What’s it about?

It’s about Duke in the late 90’s, so there’s plenty of Blue Devil-centric references, but it’s also just about general college things.

So if you didn’t go to Duke, don’t worry. You’ll still be able to get about 75% of the strips (theoretically).

Who’s the cartoonist?

My name is Porter Mason. I wrote and drew all the comics. I do other stuff, too. You can learn more about me if you like.

I like this. What should I do now?

I published a book compiling all the Johnny strips. And you can buy the book if you like. In fact, I encourage it.
