The Other Coast takes swipes at legacy strips

Adrian Raeside’s The Other Coast took a swipe at a few legacy strips in last Wednesday’s comic. The gag involved the character Vicky mentioning how great it would be to meet the cartoonist behind Mary Worth, Blondie and Dick Tracy in-which the character Toulouse would inform her that the original creators were all dead. Vicky delivered the punchline, “Reading the comics these days is like reading the obituaries.”

I guess we know what side Adrian Raeside takes in the “Did Apple Mary become Maary Worth” debate then….
