I wonder why all their clothes turned tan in the second panel.
I like how Wallace is climbing to the top branch of that big piece of driftwood.
When I was working as a press operator and all-around-printer at a small town print shop, I would sometimes sneak in on Friday when I came back from vacation so I would know what work was piled up, and so I would not be coming in completely cold on Monday morning. Maybe that’s what’s going on here; maybe Tracy called Pat just to find out what’s been happening in his absence.
It’s actually a little more fluid than that – mostly he calls him “Chief”, but because they were partners for many years before Chief Brandon retired and Pat was promoted, once in a while he just says “Pat”. I’ve seen it in the middle of an investigation, not strictly confined to off-duty time.
I noticed that also, but you folks are way ahead of me. Standard Operating Procedure in Gould’s time was the wrist radio on the left wrist, but I’ve now seen at least twice (in my reprint collection) where a character in Gould’s art, like the Chief. suddenly had a regular watch when they needed to know the time, after being shown using the wrist radio on the same wrist.
According to pictures others have posted when this has come up before, apparently the Chicago PD does indeed have a fancy checkered pattern on their officers’ caps.
Oh I see. I had to submit the comment for the symbol to appear. What if I actually wanted a c in parentheses? I wonder how you would achieve that in these comments?
FROM YESTERDAY@ NUN’YA BIDNESS:Also, you can make the copyright symbol by typing a letter c inside the left and right parentheses with no spaces.
I found that out the hard way, when I was attempting to create a newsletter for a non-profit organization within my church, and was trying to type 501 © 3. The © changed to a copyright symbol, and I had to go through extra steps to undo it. It does not seem to be doing the same thing here, as I type this, however. ???
Well, this is just one man’s opinion, but we just wasted another Sunday on silliness. Excellent art, but the only thing useful is that we know now that Bribery is behind bars. I know, I know – Gould used to take time out for vacations and the like between stories too, but there was so much potential for this Sunday, with the new story brewing. Please, Mike, if you read these comments, I think it’s time to pull way back on all this crossover stuff. Thank you.
Thanks, Neil. That is exactly what i was trying to say!
According to Darius Rucker, singer for the band, in various interviews, the band’s name is a combination of the nicknames of two of their college friends, since they started playing together while still at school. Rucker did not intend to become known as “Hootie”, but everyone thought that’s what he meant, like so many other bands that preceded them (Gerry and the Pacemakers, etc.)
