Jim's Journal is back! The 90s college newspaper sensation makes its return to comics today, only on GoComics.com.
Created by Scott Dikkers (who also created The Onion), Jim's Journal debuted in The Daily Cardinal, a student paper at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in 1987. The strip, which Dikkers described as "anti-humor," featured no punch lines or gags - it simply offered the mundane daily observations of its understated titular protagonist, Jim. The oddball, Zen-like strip became a national sensation.
Jim's Journal was eventually carried in more than 200 college newspapers in the 90s and was published in six print collections that hit the bestseller list. Dikkers retired the strip in 1997.
The re-launched Jim's Journal will feature a mix of old and new material, beginning with a prequel that finds Jim ready to graduate high school.
