    Looks like this strip is getting the new ideas while the old one has enough in the rotation to sustain itself.


    I also see what you did there with Rita and Jay. Wishful thinking or something else?

    No, it’s not Rita and Jay. John and I first started work on this strip before I was part of Working Daze. The characters developed independently on my end. At the time, Rita still had long hair in a pony tail. So maybe, after I joined WD, some elements of Maria crept into it, rather than the other way ’round.

    That’s Maria’s mom. Notice that the dad is passing her by on his way to Maria with the milk and cookies.

    I hope Maria has some payback on the way too…

    oh! I too thought she looked older and Hypnosis seemed strange. So she looks like her mother. I wonder what mom’s going to do.

    Sometimes we have to accept that some readers get a different impression from the drawings than the information of the script gives. This is the first time we’ve shown the parents’ faces, so perhaps we should have been clear in the first panel.

    That comes up in the strip.

    You should see all that stuff that Frazz gets. (No it isn’t Calvin grown up) almost every week.

    Naturally with the same writers people will see parallels, whether they’re there or not. The real question (sorry if already asked) is why there’s no Sunday Working Daze while Maria does get a Sunday strip.

    I can imagine that.

    I’ve asked that too. We never got an offer. We’ve asked, though, and maybe John remembers what kind of response we got.
