That was fun! Thanks!
The man used “woman” for comedic effect. Haven’t you ever heard or used it that way? It’s just another clever crossover between the human and cat world that Georgia manages with brilliance.
You will never regret the decision. The strip and artist are just brilliant! Nothing exactly like it in the comics world right now. Welcome aboard!
She should make it 11 and add the Breaking Cat News Shelter Special NSWT http://www.breakingcatnews.com/breaking-cat-news-special-report-shelter-cats/
like I said, I will grant they didn’t intend it to come off as harsh as it may read. again, I was more referring to the folks carping about the generally sweet tone of the strip. I greatly share your worldview, and so also the value of the strip and how she manages a tightrope walk between the sweet and the real. The Shelter Special is so raw I still can’t hear the words “I’m a good boy” without clutching my chest.
Dstar: Just to clarify, my “snark, etc.” comment wasn’t directed at other commenters or what strips they like, but rather the general tone of what passes for humor in the comics world, both old and new. Being somewhat long in tooth myself, I can appreciate how special the bright stars like Watterson were, and just how unique Georgia is going to be in the pantheon.
Yeah, I’ll grant that, I still think it was a barb. They could have just said, “I remember…” without the defensive “not…” I was more using it as hook for a few other folks griping lately. Like anyone is forcing them to read it. I am always amused at the people who are so self-important they think artists should just create what “they” want, and then complain when they don’t. lol.
If you don’t get sentimental slush and Christmas lights in all of us, you don’t get the point of BCN. For once there is an intelligent, clever, and beautifully rendered strip whose humor isn’t just based on rehashed snark, sexist complaints, and cutting the world down. BCN, and Georgia, are truly creative treasures in an otherwise mostly boring, redundant comic universe.
A hint? Who were you hinting to? No one seemed lost but you. You gave no clue you were being sarcastically rhetorical, which is what I think you mean I missed. perhaps a wink at the end would have communicated you were trying to state the obvious for the rest of us. ha ha. There are plenty of folks who are not familiar with the film. I was just trying to be helpful. before throwing snark why not see if perhaps you failed to communicate the tone you intended.
