Trying to get newspaper syndication these days is harder than winning in Vegas. For the last year King Features was interested in Sunshine State and had me send them my new strip every week. The comics editor loved it, the sales manager thought it was sellable. Seemed like a done deal.

The gang decided to take a vote to see what direction to go. Here is their answer.
