CSotD: Mostly Friday Funnies

Arlo and Janis so often reflect my world view that it sometimes barely registers, but this one cracked me up, because I’ve noticed that ad writers have picked up on the term and insert it into commercials in order to assure us that their product is for cool people. Which, as Arlo notes, assumes a […]

Plain Dealer Change – Readers Are the Editors

  The Cleveland Plain Dealer recently changed their format from six columns to four columns. But now they don’t know what to do with it and are asking readers to design and edit the paper. Our recent redesign made some of those questions more urgent and more obvious, and I’m writing to consult with our […]

They Call Me The Wonderer

Sometimes I sit and wonder. For example…   I wonder if Mike Curtis and Joe Staton are going to bring Annie back to Dick Tracy every five years. Annie, Warbucks and Company showed up five years ago (with some foreshadowing) in the Dick Tracy comic strip on the eve of the 90th anniversary of Little […]

Moderately Confused Dropped – “Inappropriate”

The Galveston Daily News has dropped Jeff Stahler‘s daily Moderately Confused panel immediately, replacing it with Mark Parisi’s Off The Mark panel. The comic strip “Moderately Confused” appearing on page B5 of Monday’s [May 20, 2019] edition was, as several readers pointed out, inappropriate, in bad taste and not funny. The content of that strip […]

CSotD: Legends and Truths and Endings of Either

Joy of Tech got out ahead of the flood of post-GOT commentary, and did so with a piece that would work no matter how things turned out. I’m not one of those people who takes pride in having not watched something everyone else was talking about, but I gave Game of Thrones a try and […]

CSotD: Winners Circle

DD Degg has the full roundup of Reubens winners here, but I thought I’d provide a taste of times they’ve appeared in Comic Strip of the Day.       Maria Scrivan actually won for greeting cards, but her line and sense of color give her panel, Half Full, a greeting card feel, and I […]

Talking with Wallace the Brave’s Will Henry

    How closely is the McClellan clan based on your family? Too close — way too close. I’m pretty much writing stories about growing up. Ask my mother, she’d have a lot to say about it. Wallace appeared for a few years at gocomics.com before it got picked up for newspaper distribution. When did […]

Edison’s back in the Kenosha News and all’s right with the world. Though maybe that’s all that’s right with the world. Between the Alabama abortion law, a pending war with Iran and Mexico burning itself to the ground, there’s plenty to fill the 12 or 16 pages of the Daily Herald. But never mind, because […]
