  1. Thanks DD for keeping up with these newly published books; I really appreciate your efforts. One question: I notice two books here that seem to be comic strip reprints (of Crabgrass and Breaking Cat News) that are being marketed as “Comics Adventure”s. Is this just a gimmick to make people think it is new material? Cuz the sample pages sure look like strips from the regular series. Maybe there’s new material added pulling the strips together into a story? Or do these strips actually have an ongoing storyline — sorry, neither of them is on my regular reading list.

    1. The comic strips these days do have ongoing storylines – longer than the one or two week stories that used to be the norm (Crabgrass just finished a five week continuity. the current Phoebe and Her Unicorn story began in the first half of July). The longer plots are usually separated by a week or two of gag strips – sometimes connected, sometimes not.
      As to the “adventure” designation … I’d like to say that Andrews McMeel uses that for their comic book-sized (width & height) paperbacks but some, like last month’s Big Nate, do not carry that classification.
      And, yes, they are reprints of earlier newspaper strips. Don’t know if they add exra art like Walt Kelly did with his Pogo books.
