    Looks like Gretchen is auditioning for a spot in R. Crumb’s “Big A** Comics”.

    Gretchen looks pretty good.

    This story is moving almost as slow as Alley Oop.

    OK as almost always in GA these days, the story is going nowhere and it was never anywhere to begin with.

    Unfortunately, for me, this GUIDO part of this story arc is too dull. I hope they go home soon and have more antics with the dog and Clovia…. they are much more entertaining as a foursome. Slim and Gretchen are like two peas in a pod and there does not seem to be enough contrast for the two of them to play off of each other in a humorous enough fashion (IMHO). OR… even more exciting an idea…. bring Joel into the story arc… it will liven up every aspect of the story.

    Lost and Found? Oh, yes. I keep forgetting. The point of this strip is that Slim is a moron, third class, deserving nothing better than to be the butt of Clovia’s fat jokes.
    While I have enjoyed Clovia’s absence, and I have really, really enjoyed the dog’s absence, I have to agree with Pipe Tobacco above, Gretchen and Slim are not very entertaining.
    As for Guido, I said it a couple days ago:
    Guido’s new girlfriend doesn’t like dogs!
    Dump the dog and get to the next story arc, please!

    CheapskateO…. I agree that Clovia and the dog’s absence INITIALLY seemed enjoyable…. but Gretchen and Slim in this airport/Guido arc make me hope for she and the dog to return.

    It would be fun and interesting if someone can provide pictures of live people who would probably look like the characters of GA. Do you know any real people who may look like Slim and Clovia?

    436rge… that is a fun idea. I will try to see if I have any potential photos to submit.

    After all that, Slim still has his humor instead of showing frustration. Gretchen has been stood up. Okay, so let’s get this strip going.

    Forget “Lost and Found,” Slim should contact the F.B.I.’s Missing Persons Bureau.

    Pipe Tobacco: And I agree with you heartily. Horrible as the dog and Clovia show is, the Slim and Gretchen show is getting even worse.
    Though, initially, with the old-time radio references, it had held some promise.
    Which gets back to your word, once again, “initially”!

    Though P M’s comment is interesting, too.
    Slim has a sense of humor instead of the frustration – and indignation – he ought to be having over this situation.
    I have said before, Slim is the most under-appreciated character in this strip – mostly by the other characters in the strip!

    I still say Guido and the dog are the same thing. How interesting is that?
