The Sunday Color Comic Supplement

The current Mary Worth makes me wonder if June Brigman ever drew Angel and the Ape.

“According to my research” – No.

So Tom Batiuk has moved his Komix Korner format from Funky Winkerbean to Crankshaft.

Cricked necks are in the forecast.

Earth Day has been cancelled.

Yesterday Alley Oop and company blew up the planet.

But as the Liberty Meadows rerun shows, it’s happened before.

As long as we’re reading reruns Calvin and Hobbes has a lesson. As does Frank and Ernest (not rerun).


Andy Capp yesterday and Andy Capp today.

Mara Llave, Keeper of Time has a new monthly installment up.

No comment as I have to read the series to find out what is happening. Same with Saga of Brann Bjornson.

It’s been in John McPherson’s panels fairly regularly since August 2018 at least.

Today is the first time I noticed the li’l dingbat.
