Mary Worth And Me


This blog covers Mary Worth. That strip has been lame ever since Aldo Kelrast died, but the last month wasn’t bad. It was a tale about how lust for vengeance ruined a man’s life. It was almost Shakespearean.

Even More Baseball In The Funny Pages


This time, it’s Josh Fruhlinger who brings our attention to today’s Slylock Fox.

Ha ha, it’s a trick question! There’s no such thing as “valuable” Kansas City Royals memorabilia.

I guess this used UL Washington toothpick I’ve encased* in glass is worthless.

* I originally wrote “enclased” here. My guess is that I was thinking of enclosed and encased at the same time and snigletized them.

More Baseball In The Funny Pages


This time it’s Doonesbury. Doesn’t Trudeau know that Arod is an overrated choker? Or does he secretly read saberist propaganda?

Breaking The First Panel


Another Comics Mockage Blog. That girl almost poked my eye out! This Week In Milford tackles Gil Thorp. Sports and the funny pages are two great tastes that taste great together; usually. But this strip has been lame this summer. Needs more Coach Kaz for sure!

The Texas Rangers Make The Funny Pages


Witness this Pluggers strip as captured in The Comics Curmudgeon. I don’t know if Gary Brookins is from Texas but Reed Hoover is from the Metroplex. Did Hoover suggest the dialogue as well as the clip joint punchline? My guess is that he did. Also, I thought it was “The Ryan Express” after this movie and not merely “The Express.”

A Potentially Cool Thing About WordPress


If you drill down to the posts, you’ll see (possibly) related posts. Here’s one on how Funky Winkerbean may be the funny pages most interesting failure. It echos some thoughts of mine that I haven’t put into words yet. Reminds me of my film studies teacher at MCC praising Woody Allen because he was willing to experiment instead of surrendering to the straitjacket of conventional movie-making.
