Mar 18, 2019 by D. D. Degg

The Erie Times-News, after tallying their comics survey, has cut 10 comic strips and panels from their daily line-up. Gone are “Wallace The Brave,” “Mr. Boffo,” “Mary Worth,” “Lio” “Herman,” “Moderately Confused,” “Wumo,” “The Buckets,” “Shoe” and “Get Fuzzy.” Though I suspect not everyone will be amused by today’s comics pages, I hope you will […]

Jim Scancarelli and The Eternal Walt Wallet

Mar 18, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  Alex Dueben, at The Comics Journal, has a nice interview with Jim Scancarelli about his 40 years on Gasoline Alley. I have to ask, are Walt and Skeezix ever going to die? I’ve been asked that. In the back of my head, I have a scenario that would work. I have told Bob Harvey, […]

CSotD: Lost Weekend

Mar 18, 2019 by Mike Peterson

I’m as distracted as Mo — this has been quite a weekend, and if the worst outcome is a chunk of pineapple in your martini, you got away with a better taste in your mouth than the rest of us. It’s even worse than this. Ann Telnaes apparently drew this one before Trump first failed […]

Comic Strip History, Lessons #292 – 296

Mar 17, 2019 by D. D. Degg

Little Man on Campus by Dick Bibler And then there was Richard “Dick” Bibler, whom Richard E. Freiburg remembered as “easily the best known Oread Hall resident” of the late 1940s. Not for any hard-court or gridiron glories, mind you, but rather for his popular “Little Man on Campus” cartoon that appeared in the University […]

CSotD: Happy Stepin McFetchit Day

Mar 17, 2019 by Mike Peterson

The Barn pretty well summarizes the day. As an excuse to get blind drunk, it’s not bad. As a holiday saluting a nation, well, it’s only one day out of 365 and tomorrow all those fools will be at work hungover. That should be punishment enough, but feel free to cheerfully ask them if they’ve […]

I Am Curious (Spider-Man)

Mar 16, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  When The Amazing Spider-Man artist Alex Saviuk acknowledged the end of his and Roy Thomas‘s run on the comic strip he mentioned that “March 23 will be the last Daily and March 17 will be the last Sunday as we close out the current storyline.” And today’s March 17 Sunday strip certainly reads like […]

CSotD: Sorting the bad from the meh

Mar 16, 2019 by Mike Peterson

I’m going to start with an encouraging word from Mark Anderson at Andertoons, in these days of shutdowns and cutbacks and layoffs. There’s something worse than getting fired. Not getting fired. I’ve popped around a fair amount and I’m very familiar with the job that is fun until your boss leaves or until the place […]

They’re very tolerant until it disagrees with them

Mar 15, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  What type of content seems to go over well in Madison? People really like it when I make fun of Donald Trump. It’s a pretty liberal community here in Madison, so people always really love that. People always loved it when I when I would make fun of Scott Walker, the old governor of […]

Interviews: MacKay, Kelley, Griffith, Fies

Mar 14, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  An Unapologetic Political Cartoonist WELLS: I saw on Twitter, I mean I just saw a bit of it, but he apologized and then he sort of apologized for the apology. But people started giving a hard time for apologizing. MACKAY: I think the big difference there is that he’s a freelancer so he doesn’t […]
