Sid Ramos from Slip & Fail

I have to give a shout out of thanks to my buddy Steve Romo. The main character (Sid Ramos) in Slip & Fail is VERY LOOSELY based on Steve. Not physically, just in the sense that he has ridiculous problems to deal with at the store. You see, I used to work at a supermarket with Romo and he was constantly having to deal with scam artists and thieves and shady human beings. We used to have quite a laugh about it. Steve would say he felt like a baby seal being clubbed. He called the bad situations "getting the club". Let it be said that neither Romo, or myself, miss the grocery industry. That was a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Jim, this cartoon is excellent! Man, just like the good old days...NOT! Those were the days from hell. Best part about it is that it really motivates you to get out! You captured it perfectly. Your cartoons are always a blast to watch. Keep it up and see you at the next Cartoonista event.
