In the last year, someone shared a comic on Facebook. It showed a grown up Calvin giving his daughter the Hobbes doll to play with. It was one of the most heart-warming things I’d seen in a while, and I hope that Bill Waterson himself would enjoy it. (Turns out that several web artists have …

The Comics Issue: If Cartoons Are So Big, Why Don’t They Pay?
In times past I have justly ripped on Google for their inappropriate choice for respect in their tributes (as far tributes go, anyway) but as far I as know it is most appropriate to take the 94th day of annual commemoration of the birth of Spirit-ualist and graphic novelist extraordinaire and pay tribute to the …
I like this: “Realistic Anatomies of Cartoon Characters“. Note that the “Sylvester the Cat” skull is another photo of Bugs Bunny’s skull, as cats don’t have buck teeth, Sylvester has canines. The skeleton models are by Hyung Koo Lee and yes is the most impressive of the bunch but there are a diversity of subjects, …
I’ve posted before about how Brad is now the most awesome character in the Luann strip. I’ve been following his career with great interest. I CANNOT believe I just quoted “The Phantom Menace”.
I’ve said before how I always love it when the comic strip Luann gets back to focusing on her older brother, Brad. Frequently, these are the most dramatic story arcs…and it looks like we may be in for a doozy. I really hope Toni doesn’t die. Need to catch up?
There is obviously a resurgence of interest in piracy due to the recent capture of a USA-flagged ship and the hostage situation with the ship’s captain that happily ended in his rescue just this morning. Many of us, of course, still think of pirates in terms of 1700s brigands in tall ships with parrots, bandanas, …
I had a lovely little birthday party with my wife, Melinda, and niece, Jenny. They bought a glittery banner and I realized I’ve never had a banner for my birthday party before. They also restarted a long-abandoned tradition of lighting a candle on the cake for every year I’ve been alive, and there’s a reason …
Hello everyone. My birthday is coming up and I want to add more variety to my Amazon wishlist. With my local comic shop kaput, I don’t really read many comics anymore. I’ve finally gotten down to the dregs of my stockpiled trade paperbacks, like The Transformations of Jimmy Olsen. After years of everyone raving about …
Most of you probably know about the Watchmen parody that Scott Kurtz is doing calleed “Ombudsmen“, but there’s the link for the first day just in case you didn’t. So far, it’s pretty funny, especially Dagwood as Dr. Manhattan.
Scott Kurtz has the cutest story on his blog!
Must be too buggy or something. Now Luann is back to the old stuck-on-last-Sunday design. *waiting impatiently*
Luann’s comic was inactive this week because the site was being revamped: Luann’s Room 2.0. The site has a terrific archive going back to 1995. (Funny how I was just bemoaning the lack of a complete archive!) Luann now joins the latest fad: colored strips every day of the week. I like it so far. …
No, not the loser character from Zero Hour. Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog rips on the sweaty virgin nerds at Comic Con. Including PvP’s Scott Kurtz. Conan O’Brien also has the full speech as a web exclusive.
So, I write this long post finally venting about PvP always always always being late… …and Scott posts that his dad ripped him a new one about always being late ON THAT VERY SAME DAY! Scott’s making an extra effort to get organized, and acquainting himself with some new hardware which may make it easier …
Scott Kurtz decided that PvP would go to a Monday through Friday comic in order for him to do justice to the title and keep it on time. It is now 10:15PM central time and still no Monday PvP. Look, I’m not some Scott Kurtz hater. (And I’m amazed how many haters there are. Mention …
Wow. Never let it be said that Scott Kurtz doesn’t know how to write a powerful moment. Jade Fontaine and Brent Sienna have tied the knot. No interruptions, no plot twists, no fleeing the ceremony. They’re married. Weird. I distinctly remember Kurtz swearing ages ago that he would never have Brent and Jade get married …
I know the comic is called Luann, but whenever the subject is Brad the strip is much better. After 9/11, Brad went from a shiftless older brother eating out of the fridge to an aspiring fireman, and in his quest he’s moved out of the house and fallen in love with another firefighter. Whenever the …
