Love Is… Political?

Just me? Or is today’s panel unusually political?

New Far Side Stuff by Gary Larson is Here!

As promised Gary Larson has returned! And it’s annotated: … So a few years ago—finally fed up with my once-loyal but now reliably traitorous pen—I decided to try a digital tablet … I got one, fired it up, and lo and behold, something totally unexpected happened: within moments, I was having fun drawing again. I […]

CSotD: Fighting Hate With Homework

Here are the most recent two days at Prickly City, and whether or not this is going to be a week-long story arc, Scott Stantis has already outlined the dilemma facing thoughtful conservatives. It’s that whole thing about whether it’s nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageously offensive blathering or […]

Lalo Alcaraz Partners With The Republicans

The Lincoln Project is hitting Donald Trump again—this time partnering with a well-known Latino cartoonist from Los Angeles who never thought he would work with Republicans. The group made up of veteran Republican strategists, who have endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president, partnered on a political cartoon with pioneering artist Lalo Alcaraz, who created La […]

CSotD: Minding Our P’s and Q’s

Kal Kallaugher makes the best use I’ve seen of the two lawyers who freaked out (again?) because people were marching up the private road next to their property en route to the mayor’s house. Which long sentence I employ because of all the people who have spoken up to defend the couple, misrepresenting the nature […]

CSotD: Post-holiday clean-up

I was going to avoid politics today, but I’m not sure this Candorville counts as politics so much as sociology. Yesterday’s social media postings were full of white folks being shocked and righteously indignant that the original Independence Day didn’t free anyone but them. It reminded me of my oft-told story of coming away from […]

The Glorious Fourth

Earlier today Old Man Peterson showed some 4th of July comics from his youth. But I’m a young Hep Cat, so here’s some comic strips from today’s papers. These days daily comics come with color so The Fourth landing on a Saturday doesn’t disallow for a red, white, and blue fireworks display. Dustin and Dennis […]

CSotD: Sunday, July 4, 1920

A century ago, July 4 fell on a Sunday, which provides some long-form comics. Oddly enough, it provides only a limited amount of holiday hoopla, and I didn’t find a lot of Independence Day graphics to brighten up the place. Instead, Page Ones were covering the Democratic Convention, which, as this Boston Globe Extra explains, […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies – This time it’s personal

Let’s begin this very personal saunter through the funnies with a self-own in the form of this Bizarro. Back in my Struggling Author days, I dwelt in the land of D-level rejection: My novel manuscript would often come back with a personal — rather than a pre-printed — letter, but never the kind that asked […]

Happy 90th to Al Wiesner
