Charlotte cartoonist in final 3 on 'Strip Search'

In the end of April, The Charlotte Observer published an article about cartoonist Abby Howard, who grew up in Charlotte and is competing on "Strip Search," a reality game show for web cartoonists. At age 20, Howard is the youngest of a dozen cartoonist summoned to participate in the challenges.

Now, she is in the final trio of contestants. In the final challenge, Howard was required to create a brand new comic with six strips, three character bios and one t-shirt design. Tuesday night, the final episode of "Strip Search" airs, revealing the winner. You can tune in to www.penny-arcade.com/strip-search at 7:30 p.m. PST to see if Howard will win $15,000 and a year in the Penny Arcade studios.

You can also check out Howard's personal web comic here.

Thanks for the info on a local. Hopefully you previewed her website before you posted the link. FYI...not very appropriate for all your readers.

Horrible art, inane text. The only thing I could think that would be lamer would be a reality show featuring another low brow lack of talent artist.

The finale is 7:30pm PDT; so, it'll actually be 10:30pm EDT.

Sanitizer, I don't think you're the target audience. Abby is rubbing shoulders with the biggest names in the webcomic industry (if you can call it that) at the age of 20. I think she's funny as hell and she's accomplished more than most.
