CSotD: A Coalition of the Willing

Matt Wuerker ran this piece several days ago, but it continues not simply to be relevant but to increase in relevance. Never mind Epstein, at least for the moment, though I’d like to see his case sorted out: There is, apparently, an actual affidavit or piece of testimony or something quasi-legal that connects Trump to […]

Bastille Day Sunday Funnies

  Some Sunday comics of note today, only one noting Bastille Day.     I like the nice Summer day look of Judge Parker but that dark last panel … Evil looms!     Whereas Macanudo’s Summer day in the woods just makes me smile.     More than smile, Buckles and Bound and Gagged […]

CSotD: Finding your way; losing ours

Stephen Collins on the perils of shopping in a strange supermarket, and thoughts on that topic could be a book, and an interesting one. I had the great good fortune to be a biz writer in a small city when a fourth grocery chain came in, and they were not only willing to talk to […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies w/ a side order of truth

The new Nancy is hardly the only strip featuring a rude, self-absorbed main character, but, at least so far, it goes beyond simply laughing at her rudeness. Confucius said, “In vain have I looked for a single man capable of seeing his own faults and bringing the charge home against himself,” and expanding the search […]

Daily Comics in B&W!!?? Paper Apologizes

  A sure sign of the Apocalypse. The Orlando Sentinel published black-and-white comics Wednesday morning. I wish I had a simple explanation for why our comics appeared in black and white today. The simple answer is it was a mistake. The complicated one that that the page was set “as full color enhanced black, meaning […]

CSotD: Happy Joe Shuster Day!

Joe Shuster was born on this day in 1914, and while he probably didn’t sit up in the Toronto hospital to read the newspaper that day, his father may have had a chance to do so in those pacing and chain-smoking days.. Couldn’t find any Toronto papers on-line, and there weren’t a whole lot of […]

She Wrote Me a Letter, Said…

More letters to editors ’bout comics and cartoons.   God is just. KAL is not. KAL has sunk to a new low with his Sunday cartoon. Not only does he continually disrespect President Donald Trump, but now he disrespects Almighty God himself. Diane of Freeland accuses KAL of blasphemy.     100% off base Prejudging […]

CSotD: To the cartoonists who appear here

I have a number of links where I find cartoons and I tend to link back to those places, my intention being to help my readers find cartoonists to follow and to build traffic for those cartoonists. But if linking you back to your syndicate or your Facebook or Twitter page isn’t helpful — particularly […]
