Comic Strip of the Day: Comic Timing, or vice-versa

Sep 25, 2018 by Mike Peterson

I was, at first glance, a little surprised that Randall Munroe took this personal view of time, since his geeky genius approach to xkcd often includes exquisitely detailed plays upon How Things Work or insider jokes that require you to understand the same. Then I realized he’d taken an Angry Old Man rant — traditionally […]

Comic Strip of the Day: Waiting for the Next Rhino

Sep 24, 2018 by Mike Peterson

One of the tabs in my morning perusal is Africartoons, but I have to confess that, while the continent has an inspiring culture of cartooning, it seems for the past couple of years the specific economic and leadership issues of the various nations have made their commentary hard to understand from the outside. But this […]

Comic Strip of the Day: Bull in China and elsewhere

Sep 23, 2018 by Mike Peterson

It would be awfully hard not to lead off with Patrick Blower‘s commentary on the new, voluntary trade wars, simply for the color and dynamism of the piece. But it’s more than eye-catching, with the absurdity of Trump and his little leash-and-collar, about to be ignominiously crushed by household appliances rather than suffering the more […]

Prince Valiant Receives Title (Panel, that is)

Sep 22, 2018 by D. D. Degg

Something had to be done. Eighty years ago it was pretty straightforward. Prince Valiant, in the Days of Hal Foster, was drawn and published as a full broadsheet page. Sure, there might have been some slicing and dicing, some pushing and squeezing to get it to fit as a full tabloid page. But more than […]

Comic Strip of the Day: Hoping for a Great Fall

Sep 22, 2018 by Mike Peterson

(Arlo and Janis) (Real Life Adventures) So, yes, it’s autumn, as Arlo notes, though, as Real Life Adventures counters, not so’s you’d notice. The important thing around here is that we want a spectacular autumn and it’s a crap shoot each year. Sometimes, it’s just kind of blah. Sometimes, just as it’s looking really good, […]

Comic Strip of the Day: Friday Funnies

Sep 21, 2018 by Mike Peterson

We’ll start this week’s Friday Funnies with Dogs of C Kennel and a tip for anyone thinking of adding a pup to their life. It’s kind of ironic that a strip set in a dog shelter would make a gag about purebreds, but they do occasionally show up there. I’m generally supportive of the move […]
