Random Acts of Comics

Most of us can relate to Bill Whitehead’s Free Range. We all get our most brilliant thoughts as we lay drifting off to sleep only to find the next morning that it may be good but it isn’t brilliant.

That’s if we write it down. If not then the next morning you only remember you had a brilliant idea but can’t remember what it was.

Then there are those times when reading a compatriot’s column supplies you with a nice heading.


Speaking of inspiration … today’s Mike Peters political cartoon.


Mike gives credit where credit is due. As he did last week.


Back to the heading – A random act of kindness would be giving to the Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. And an unexpected reward for such kindness is Team Cul de Sac’s new 2022 240 page e-edition of Compleating Cul de Sac for as little as $10. Even if you have the earlier version $10 for 100 new pages of Richard Thompson stuff is a bargain.

Team Daily Cartoonist (actually Alan Gardner) contributes to the e-book with
a Richard Thompson interview from 2007.


On the subject of books.

In celebration of the cartoonist’s recent 100th birthday, Top Shelf Productions is proud to announce Funny Things: A Comic Strip Biography of Charles M. Schulz, an imaginative and tender-hearted tribute to the man behind Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang, created in the style of Schulz by Luca Debus and Francesco Matteuzzi and scheduled for publication in August 2023.

IDW has more about the 432 page book that is the same size as your Complete Peanuts editions.


We know most comics are done at least four to six weeks before publication.

With Mauna Loa in the news,
John Deering has some kind of timing with today’s Strange Brew.



One thought on “Random Acts of Comics

  1. Print editions of Compleating Cul de Sac 2nd ed are in the works, but we’re having some production issues. They’ll be more expensive of course, but all profits go to Team Cul de Sac of the Fox Foundation.
