A Call to Action!

Okay, finals time. Don't expect anything great from me during this period. I need to do well, mainly in certain classes *cough*accounting*cough*.

Anyhoo, I had posted this on a webcomic community forum I'm a part of, but since I watned your feedback as well (and because you
should be reading Elderly Apple [*shakes fist*]) I feel you're all qualified to help.

Okay, so I've been thinking that I'd like to give some freeeeebies away at Comic-Con. It might get me some interested viewers, and I think it'd be neat to see people with my swag at the con.

Anyhoo, I'm considering the following items (not all of them, but maybe one or two).
-Business Cards (To be carried on my person)

Now, for each of these, I would want to have one of my comics on it.


I have an assignment for you all. An assignment of friendship!

I'd like to hear which comics you think would work well in any of these formats. Meaning:
1. They have to be representative of what Elderly Apple is; it's style, humor, whatever.
2. They should try not to make it seem like there are any stable characters (this is one of the main reasons I am hesitant to just resort to Pliny, the Elderly Apple.
3. It must be (and I quote the Comic-Con people) "be approved by Comic-Con to be all ages appropriate." I don't think this will be too much of an issue.
4. (I could probably "clean up" any of them if necessary, erasing stray lines and such, so that shouldn't be an issue).

Additionally, it we're looking at a business card, we'd need a space where my name/URL could go. (I actually thought after making this one that "that would make a good business card.")

Oh, and for a button, you'd need something that would work well in a circle.

Alternatively for the button, we could instead do something like this, using TWO buttons:

All subject to variation.

Now, I know what you're thinking: "Wait, Elderly Apple Guy [ed. note: this is how people refer to me], why aren't you trying to figure this stuff out yourself? Shouldn't you be doing your own dirty work?"

Answer: I kinda am. I have certain ideas of what I'd like to use, but I want to open up the discussion to see if there's any kind of consensus. Plus, it's hard to trust my own judgment when it comes to my creations.

So take a look at my archives and see what you think will work! I thank you in advance for any help!

So there you go! Put your ideas in the comments, along with any explanations of why I should use it.
