Ces and Jim promised some weirdness for October Sundays.

And Sally Forth is really delivering on the Sunday strange.

Zits dailies feature A Sloth Called Jeremy last week and this week,
when the arc took Sunday off Loose Parts and Half Full filled the gap.

Detective shows seems to be very popular on television, so why not on the comics pages?
I enjoyed the short action sequence in JumpStart. Maybe Robb could have the dailies go
with Joe’s work adventures and the Sundays continue with the home life.

He would have woken up to a Bizarro world.


It is said that Saturday strips are the least read strips of the week.

So did Lalo use that day’s La Cucaracha to take a shot at The Pulitzers?

The Wizard of Id Classics follows current Wizard of Id on my feed, and I have to admit the difference in the look of the one I grew up with and the one I read now is sometimes shocking.
But hey, I love Henry!

A Reed Brennan Customer Service notice:

Creators Syndicate has issued a correction for Andy Capp black and white and color for 10/15.
The word “you” was missing from Andy’s speech bubble in the first panel. It’s been corrected to read, “Why do you say that, Vicar?”
