    Did the EPA do a toxic waste inspection and clean-up before Miss Bliss re-opened the pre-school on that former auto garage site? What is in the sandbox? And what oily substance smells like bananas? Is Blisshaven Preschool a safe place for Alice and Beni and all the other kids?

    How could you be in them when you weren’t even born yet, Alice?

    Nothing of any importance happened in the pre-Alician era, didn’t you know that?

    Lacquer and other finishes sometimes have an odor that smells like fermented fruit.

    Sisyphos asked “And what oily substance smells like bananas?”

    Isoamyl acetate, a paint and lacquer solvent.

    Also used as artificial banana flavoring.

    The toxic waste on the Blisshaven site may go a ways towards explaining the behavior of some of the Blisshaven students

    Very much used in th 50’s/60’s for wooden desk tops and floors and goes along with the “eraser” smell………so I’m told.

    Ahh, the fabled pre-Alician era, a period that is shrouded in mystery. No settlements, burial grounds nor any records have ever been found about the people that supposedly lived during that time. As such Archeologists and Historians all over the world still wonder, did the pre-Alician era exist at all? Or is this world much, much younger than we think. The answer to these questions may never be found.

    Maybe Johnny G was the kind of mechanic that stuffed bananas into transmissions to “repair” them… add a bit of silver paint and they’re good for 1 day past the 1 week warranty.

    this is one strange strip.I understand it’s won many awards,the artwork looks almost intentionaly bad,with todays story arc it reminds me of freeform poetry, i might drop this strip for peanuts reruns

    Peanuts was smoother of line, but everything was pretty simple, too. I love the complexity of Richard’s drawings.

    @Sisyphos

    I was thinking the same- what chemical DOES smell like overripe banana?

    Yes, it’s a strange strip. That’s the charm.
