    Oh woe is Alice.

    Blisshaven Academy must be a first-rate pre-school, seeing that Miss Bliss is going to do story time from the Advanced Mother Goose. Calm down, Alice!

    Alice has a valid reason to be angry.
    Let that anger go, Alice – use it’s energy productively to fuel self-improvement.
    (Alternatively, as Miss Bliss suggests, you could bite it back until it becomes a seething volcano of resentment and hate which will one day take you to the highest point in town with a machine gun in your hands. Just saying’)

    A preschoolian nightmare.

    interesting to see early richard – later on he probably would have combined the backgrounds of the first four panels into one seamless shot.

    I thought Alice was just getting going with a good story.

    I work with pre-schoolers twice a week, and sometimes it requires letting them get on with a good story. It’s actually great to see them figure out how to spin a yarn. Only thing is, they are never as articulate as Alice.

    Love this strip! So glad we are getting the stories all over again! I could look at them a million times and never tire of them. Lots of good thoughts to you Richard!

    My local paper published the strip through Sunday. But yesterday and today, it’s missing. At the top of the page it says:

    The “Cul de Sac” comic strip is no longer being produced.

    Is the classic strip in other papers?

    Love the book title ‘Advanced Mother Goose’ – reminded me of an ‘Archie’ comic where Big Moose is struggling over ‘Mother Goose Made Easy’.

    Rage, Alice, rage against the darkness; it is your true heritage. Then go dance on a manhole, and everything will be beautiful.

    I actually prefer that the discontinued strips make room for new talent— after all, that’s how Cul de Sac got there! Usually the circumstances are a bit different, but really, Andy Capp? Peanuts? Time to move on, and if you want a classic fix (and I do, in some cases) here’s the web.
    Really, what the classic Peanuts in my paper shows me is how much Schultz lost off his slap shot in the last years. Who wants to be reminded of that?
