Congratulations to Ray Billingsley on 20 years of Curtis. The strip remains as good and as fresh as ever. He has established an excellent cast of characters and always seems to have a new take on a regular group of scenarios: trying to get Michelle to go out with him, reading comics in class, putting up with bullies, trying to get his dad to stop smoking, antagonizing his little brother, critiquing ladies’ hats in church, and more. Yet he is always blazing new paths, such as Curtis’ experiences in summer school this summer. I don’t care for the Kwanzaa stories at the end of every year, but every other day I’m still reading and enjoying Curtis since day 1.
