Though I do take her feedback into consideration, I don't think I can ever totally let go of Commander Broccoli and start fresh. He has been in my life for the last 20 years and I have hundreds of comic strips of him. It's like he's a part of who I am.
All this wondering led me to the idea of adding a new character to my comics... a little girl named Trixie. You can see a sketch of her on my facebook group http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/241303862565906
