Fleep made its debut in the weekly newspaper, "Asian Week" in Feburary of 2001. It's about a boy who wakes up in a telephone booth which has been mysteriously selaed in an envelope of concrete. Using only the contents of his pockets (two pens, a paperback novel, three coins and 20 ft of unwaxed dental floss) our hero must fashion and execute an escape plan before he runs out of oxygen. Believe it or not, I try to end each strip on a cliffhanger which is very challanging considering most of the 42 strips take place inside this one phone booth.
While it was running, Fleep was everything I wished that a comic strip could be. It was ambitous, mysterious and utterly masturbatory. About a quarter of the strips feature the main character working through various math problems. They are some of the most dramatic math problems you'll ever see in a comic strip. Unfortunately, the arts editor at Asian week didn't see it that way and canceled "Fleep" two thirds into its run because it wasn't asian enough.
