Neatorama reader Peter Durston wrote about his comic "Benson" and how it started:
It all started in Australia in 2002, when the boredom of working at a call centre forced two guys to draw comics to keep their sanity. Since no talking was permitted, they would collaborate on the strips by taking turns to draw a square each. In this way, they created many hilarious comic strips, until one of them moved to London.
But did that stop them? No sir! Now they continue to create the comic strips by posting them back and forth to each other. Before each strip is completed, it's been around the world six times!
