Chronicle: A Funny New Webcomic About Newspaper Editor Charles Burke

Chronicle is a funny new webcomic about the ups and downs in the life of a newspaper editor named Charles Burke. In the four months since the strip began, Chuck has lost his prestigious position as Editor-In-Chief of The City Times and relocated to the tiny upstate town of Riverbed, where must work with a staff of four to keep a dying paper alive and - if possible - relevant.

The strip is new every weekday morning, with full online archives and subscription via email or RSS.

Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it.

I have been walking the line between telling my story and just having fun with the characters. I think it will get easier as the premise and characters become established.

Thanks for taking the time to read the archives!

I read the archives and not bad; mostly because it has an interesting premise - big shot journalist/editor pushed out of big city job to take over a small paper. That lines up a plot (will he be able to turn around the paper); and creates lots of fish out of water kind of situations.

Today's strip is literally the end of the set-up. From now on one hopes to be more in the thick of the plot.

For the future, I'd love to see the strip just be funnier - while I was interested enough to read it, I can't recall really laughing hard a heck of a lot. T
