'Inside Woody Allen,' a comic strip from 1976-84

We learned something new this morning. From 1976 to 1984 a comic strip called 'Inside Woody Allen' ran in daily newspapers and featured Woody as the pen-and-ink protagonist. He 'was angst-ridden, flawed, fearful, insecure, inadequate, pessimistic, urban, single, lustful, rejected by women.' He was cowed by mechanical objects, and a touch misanthropic. He was also at odds with his antagonistic parents; committed his existential panic to a journal; had regular sessions with his passive-aggressive psychotherapist; was threatened by large, often armed, men; and employed his modest size to communicate physical impotence the way Chaplin, in the guise of the Little Tramp, suffered humiliation.'
