    That hippy has to be Shel Silverstein.
    Yes, I’m sooo doing a reading of this the second it wraps up. ‘Cause I’m the Readin’ Kid!

    You noticed that too, huh?

    .
    Not a hippy, though – it says “beatnik”.
    .
    Can’t decide if this seems more to me as if it were Dr Suess or Shel on some really good acid…
    .
    But one of the two, definitely.

    Love the respective expressions of the guru and the kid. I’m sure Kory is the guru; looks just like him…

    The resemblance to Terry Gilliam is amazing, he is an amazing doodler I must say.

    Cue crescendo of highly dramatic theme music.
    Narrator: Only one can be the King! Who has won? Stay ’tooned!

    Geez louise…it takes 2 minutes of your time to read the whole thing. I think it’s amazing that he can rhyme everything that way…takes a lot of thought and editing.

    There’s someone on the GoComics facebook page that made a comment to the Lost Side strip posted there. “this is going to sound petty – but if its longer than a paragraph I wont even attempt to read it”

    Jesus saw that comment and wept.

    Beatniks came before hippies. They had much in common.

    I like the rhyme of this time and doodl’n I go watching and reading still proceed’n to the draw off nigh.
    -
    As always Korry you are a maker of new rhymes and fairy tales. Good one and all.
