Benny & Sid presents Chapter 8 of the Serialized Graphic Novel The Truant Officer

The latest edition of Salem's only original, weekly online cartoon strip!

The Truant Officer #8
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - Some guys finesse their way through life. They make the right choices. We can call this luck, but it's more than luck. It's a matter of keeping your eyes and ears open.

It's also a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

Then there are guys who never know what to do next. They need someone to write out their next three steps ahead of time. They need someone to watch over them because left on their own they'd drop the ball.

I'd have to admit to belonging to the latter group. I don't deny I need a hand every once in a while even though I am a Truant Officer.
