Gil Thorp, 1/15/18 It’s time for a new storyline in Gil Thorp, the strip about high school sports that isn’t afraid to get topical, the strip that was doing storylines about DREAMers way back in 2008, the strip that has the guts to say […]

Maybe the other 18 players have already fled the scene

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Panel from Slylock Fox, 1/14/18 The solution to this mystery is painfully obvious (the bat is upside down, you see!) so I’m going to pose a more complex question.

Does Dawn know Iris and Zak are back together? Does she even know they broke up from before?

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Mary Worth, 1/12/18 Aww, isn’t this nice?

Death-haunted quickies

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. The Lockhorns, 1/11/18 I’m assuming Loretta is leaning on the life here for effect, because Leroy is dead. It’s unclear if Loretta murdered him or if he just passed away peacefully in his chair, but clearly she’s getting as much joy as she can […]

CHOMP MUNCH/ MUNCH GRIND: pure poetry

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Mark Trail, 1/10/17 Hey, remember four and a half years ago when Rusty dozed off and had a vivid dream about dinosaurs?

South Florida Monday

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Spider-Man, 1/8/18 Huh, so, when they set up that Doctors Banner and Connors have the same incredibly rare blood type, I assumed the meant, like … a super-powered sci-fi blood type? One conducive to turning people into green monsters? Not, you know, AB negative, […]

Literary Sunday

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Dennis the Menace, 1/7/18 One of the anecdotes my wife and I repeat to each other endlessly comes from years ago, when we were driving through Pennsylvania and stopped, as was our habit, at Clyde Peeling’s Reptile Land, where we never paid to actually […]

Saturday quickies

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Mark Trail, 1/6/18 Oh my God, in order to convince Rusty’s teacher (side note: Rusty goes to “school,” I guess?) to let him have time off to go to Mexico with his adoptive parents, Cherry had to pimp out her own father to the […]

Metapost: First Friday comedic comments of the week!

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Hello everybody! It’s the first Friday of the month, so you should come to my live comedy show, The Internet Read Aloud, if you’re anywhere near Los Angeles tonight! I don’t like to spoil the surprises, but allow me to whisper onto the wind […]

Gross food Friday

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Shoe, 1/5/18 Say what you will about Shoe, but you have to admit that the strip really nails what it would look like if an anthropomorphic bird-man were suffering from crushing depression and just slouched down in a chair for hours too close to […]

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Spider-Man, 1/3/18 Oh, hey, I didn’t really discuss what happened in Newspaper Spider-Man while I was gone, did I? Well, it turns out that Dr. Connors lost a lot of blood due to that gator bite, and also that the whole reason Bruce Banner […]

Metapost: Worthy, Christmas-heralding COTW!

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Hello everyone! Your slightly truncated end-of-year COTW in a moment, but first, a couple of important notes.

Funky Christmas to all, and to all a miserable night!

Ads by Project Wonderful! Your ad could be here, right now. Funky Winkerbean, 12/22/17 I think we can all agree that the worst part of the Funkyverse is the endless smirking, and today’s strip contains what might be the most malignant example I’ve seen in years.
