Cool Jerk is a hilarious, black-and-white newspaper-style comic strip created by Paul Horn, 42. It chronicles the quirky bizarre adventures of the diverse denizens of Spittle Beach, Calif., primarily wiseass hodad (and title character) Armpit Beachhead and his superior-in-every-way girlfriend Puppy Fizgig. Cool Jerk originally ran in several newspapers each week in the early-to-mid-1990s until Horn moved the strip online. Since 1998, Horn has continued to offer new content weekly, making it one of the longest-running regular comics features created exclusively for Internet distribution.
