Dretzel & Marcel

Background

In late 2017, I launched the comic strip Dretzel & Marcel online, and made about 70+ strips within the following year, which I then collected into two paperback books.

 

However, the strip did have a different title during these early years; a title which I've later regretted, and now think was quite weak, for various reasons (I just wanted a "catchy letter rhyme" in my title at the time, and didn't think things through). Thus, in the early 2020s, I "relaunched" the strip as Dretzel & Marcel, and had the two paperback books republished as such. See the shop section for more info on this.

If anyone should find any reason to refer to the comic strip, I'd appreciate if you'd use its current name, Dretzel & Marcel. (If anyone's curious; the name Dretzel is "borrowed" from an 18th-century German composer named Cornelius Heinrich Dretzel, whose work I doubt I've ever heard, I was just looking for some obscure name, that's all. Marcel just happens to be a name I like, and I think it fits the character well.)

 

All examples below from 2018. I've since become less interested in the strip, preferring instead to do one-panel comics without any recurring characters. Even so, a few more Dretzel & Marcel strips were done in the early 2020s, although I've yet to publish them anywhere...
