Your post has helped clarify for me what I find most distasteful in “Frazz”. With some self-deprecation, you’ve wisely shrugged of the “renaissance man” mantle. Meanwhile Mr. Mallett has Frazz practically stand on a corner and bellow to the passersby of his enlightenment and well-roundedness. To be a renaissance man is a thing to aspire to, quietly. This strip’s creator does his hero no favors by beating us daily over the head with the variety and number of ways that Frazz is above-average. He should remember that America loves an underdog. And we want to step out from behind a shrub and trip a self-congratulating guy like Frazz.
