When I first started drawing a cartoon every day in 1976, they weren't fanfiction. Originally they were what we now call in webcomics a "journal comic", portraying the artist and his pals dealing with conflicts ranging from everyday frustrations to dark lords with spacefleets. This continued off and on through the mid 90s till I started getting my weekly creative-and-attention-grabbing fix with posting to Usenet fanfiction newsgroups. Then in the 2003-2004 tv/Dailies season I revived the "original" Dailies on the fanfiction site, alternating with fanfiction Dailies and the King Arthur Dailies of the time. Then in May 2004 I started AKOTAS and converted the fanfiction site Dailies to fanfiction only. Anyway, here's the first original Daily GARP, set about 1990.
