First JODDAS VAPD strip: Try the New App App

Believe it or not Drew was the very first JODDAS VAPD character I made. When I was on the Calvin & Hobbes Stage my best friend at the time Drew saw I was drawing comic strips in class. He asked if I had other characters other than Calvin & Hobbes characters. I told him I didn’t and decided to create two characters (one of which never became a true character). Drew was based on stereotypes as where I lived my friend was the only African American to go by plus the both of us had just watched Undercover Brother trailer at the time:

In the Life Sucks stage Drew became a normal person basically and lost a lot of negative stereotypes. Drew still remained a ladies man though. Drew has always been a favorite for me and without him a lot of my other characters would not have been thought of.

Life Stinks played Drew as a bit of a hardcore player character. He went through women left and right and sadly the way he did it entertained readers. He wasn’t abusive or anything just very smooth.

However Drew eventually met up with someone in Life Stinks and became a real man, but time will only tell if the same happens in JODDAS VAPD. Even during the pre JODDAS VAPD stage he was portrayed as a ladies man character all over again. I like Drew and I like the two directions I can go with him.

Click image to enlarge Drew is one of the few male characters to receive any changes. He has always kept his signature afro and sunglasses. He mostly keeps variations of his vest. Most notable changes are whether he has a necklace, a shirt, or if he closes his vest.

Drew is a tough guy who only does what he wants. He hates stereotypes telling him what he can and can’t be. He will become an engineer no matter what. An open and honest guy he doesn’t fear telling a person off. He loves to fish for dates as he’s a lonely guy looking for love wherever he can find it. His friends enjoy his presence whenever he’s around as he can make any situation that much more cooler.
