YSL makes the news [*UPDATE]


- By Lori McAllister

"Lee Post's Your Square Life celebrates all the underdogs, and those uncomfortable moments you'd like to pretend never happened."

This is a wonderful article on . . . well, me and the strip. My wife would argue it is a celebration of a Northern Irish woman who married a down-on-his-luck cartoonist and improved his life dramatically.

For the record however, I did win the senior class presidential bid. While the influence of the bedwetting vote is unknown, I believe it to be a strong force behind the final vote. They are a secretive bunch.

The cover for the issue features a bunch of the old favorites and for the sake of the new fans, let me run down the characters represented:
(from left to right)

  • Big, headed kid (featured in a couple strips
  • The superhero from this weeks strip
  • The yes man
  • the comic version of me
  • the biggest flea
  • The robot who loves you
  • the Genius helmet kid
  • (and in the front) the pet peeves and a pooping chick
[Update] -In the February 9-15, 2006, the Press published a correction: "In a feature article about comic artist Lee Post in the last week's Press (February 2), we incorrectly said his campaign for high school class president was unsuccessful. In fact, Post was elected Colony High's class president in 1993. We regret the error - and belatedly, extend our congratulations to him.
