Fugly Charlie ("Scarecrow")

"Fugly Charlie" comic strip series is about a loveable, geeky Mama's Boy with "attractively-challenged" looks. He goes on adventures (or for a better word, "midsadventures") to find friendship and love, but his hideous looks often make people reject HIM.
In the FIRST "Fugly Charlie" comic strip, "Scarecrow" (subtitle), a farmer is having trouble with a flock of black crows eating his crops. He posts a sign (looking for a "scarecrow") outside his farm. The character, "Fugly Charlie", walks by and is offered the job as the NEW "scarecrow". Afraid of the HIS repulsive looks, the flock of black crows dare NOT attack the crops ... and eventually starve to death.
