    I see “Phoebe and Her Unicorn” the comic strip is now being officially solicited.

    Moronic acid (the name comes from the Mora tree) is actually being studied as a treatment for both AIDS and herpes. The mind boggles.

    Basically, the art form was still being invented, and having both narration and speech balloons was common at the time. That said, though, presenting the narration as continuous text that ignored the panel breaks is definitely a failed experiment. I suppose that McKay, as the creator, could not see how awkward it was for someone reading the page cold.

    (To this day, “Prince Valiant” is all narration at the bottom each panels, and when I was a kid, there were still “comic strips” consisting of /one/ picture with a longish prose narration on one side.)

    Even if you assume that network shows made specifically for television are meant, 1962 is too late. “Ruff and Reddy” started on NBC in 1957, and “Winky-Dink and You” on CBS in 1953. And those are just the ones I can offhand remember.

    I’m basically only an amateur actor, and I can still connect myself to Kevin Bacon in only three steps. Acting is a damned small world.

    No, these were for full-size broadsheet pages, 22" wide. Unless you’re reading these about one row at a time on a 27” screen or so, or on a 40" screen in portrait mode, or blowing them up to be wider than your screen is. you’re not seeing them at the intended size.

    I spent a couple weekends this September wearing actual steel plate armor (and not even a full suit—just a gorget, pauldrons, leather bracers, greaves, and a helm), so I sympathize.

    Yes, “Little Nemo” is one of the great ones.

    Democritus and others guessed right about atoms.

    And what has Todd to do with this, we wonders, aye, we wonders.

    The debt owed to “Little Nemo” is obvious, but there is just as great a debt to “The Yellow Kid”; Nibsy’s speech is almost exactly like Mickey Dugan’s.
