20 Years? Excellent work, Brian. “Pickles” is one of my favs.

Great strip…deserves more attention…wonderful writing…unfortunately as you get older you find yourself relating to it… :-(

CONGRATS BRIAN!
I hate to admit it, but “Pickles” is my wife’s favorite strip!
She likes to point out that my senior moments and Earl’s are very similar. I have the feeling that most of your readers can relate all too well with Earl and Opal…but that’s what endears the strip to so many.
Here’s to 20 more years Brian!

I agree…nicest guy you’ll ever meet. I can’t believe it’s 20 years already! Congratz, Brian, and continued success!

I once would have called Brian “underrated.” No more! Everyone realizes he’s one of the best in the biz and deserves all the accolades coming his way. The fact that he’s a super-nice guy doesn’t make his work any better, but it’s still a fact!

When I read Pickles, I keep looking back to see if you are hiding in the corner of our home and writing down our every move. You make our day, every day, a little brighter. Thanks Brian and congratulations on twenty years.
