    Guz is going to blow his stack, it appears. And the Wizer is as clueless as usual…

    Wizer, you’re digging your own grave with Guz.

    And on that note . . .

    HUG-A-HUG-A-POUNCIES, Alleygators and Oopsters!

    From yesterday:
    @Keeper 98
    Those leaves aren’t drawn. They’re a cut, peel and paste artist aid item available from graphic supply companies.
    —————
    Even if that’s true (and I have no particular reason to doubt it), presumably someone had to draw them in the first place, and someone has to arrange them in a realistic manner on the page.
    I don’t really care HOW they do them. My comment still stands, that I find the effect much more realistic than how trees are usually drawn in most comics, and, that being the case, I like them. I was quite impressed the first time I noticed them.

    I’ll admit that I was impressed the first time I saw the floating leaves, too. And the second time. Maybe even a little the third time. But when I noticed that Jack was using the creepy floating leaves as a way to avoid drawing Hamlin style backgrounds, I liked them less and less. The leaves, together with the silhouettes, the talking heads, and the extended hands all work together to allow Jack to be lazy. And I’m not afraid to use the word. Lazy.

    Not to mention the two panel a day format and the Sunday cut-and-paste, and the Monday rehash.

    Wizer needs to stop right now, while he still has a chance. Either that or change his name. I would suggest right now is a good time to make like a track star and run.

    So … it is your position that we should not find fault with the Bender-hell-u-broker’s effort if we can’t do a better job?
    -
    In my humble opinion, that would not be all that difficult.

    Wizer didn’t like being a social outcast. I wonder how he is going to like being an actual outcast. Gus is about to exile him.
