    Bit surprised that no one else mentioned Earl from Mutts on the ‘lost’ poster.

    Possibly Jake would be a disagreeable character in any case, but I suspect that much of his unpleasantness stems from his awareness that other people’s friendliness is no more than a front for their covetousness.

    I always knew there was a reason that I never trusted those who habitually refer to themselves in the third person. That alone is sufficient reason for why Melvin creeps me out, even without a host of other ‘ew’ factors.

    This is the first time I’ve ever seen a grey-out occur with a landscape panel. Before I had only seen it happen with a number of ’toons in the portrait format — including Beardo once or twice, if memory serves, when a number of them were done in large panels a while back.

    I too was thinking: Poncho, the voice of reason?! I was half expecting to see a bevy of flying pigs — which, in the Ponchoverse, isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.

    I was thinking more like the twilight bark, although it doesn’t appear to be twilight time.

    I hadn’t thought of The Brady Bunch, though it seems so obvious now. But this lot is assuredly The Barmy Bunch; now all we need is a suitably zany theme song.

    “If all the humor is in the writing, it’s sort of anti-humorously funny to show the kind of silent film deadpan of a static character who’s describing action. Drawing all the crazy stuff wouldn’t have made it funnier- the humor comes from Lurlene’s difficulty blindly imagining what’s going on- and the fact that the reader has to do the same.”

    Just so. The “silent film deadpan” analogy is dead-on; perhaps you can think of such instances as Bob Newhart moments, just as hilarious in their way as “all the crazy stuff,” and no less valid.

    BTW, what the heck is it with readers who apparently feel the need to issue earnest, sometimes histrionic announcements of their impending departure whenever they get some bee or other in their bonnet about a comic strip? Granted, you’ll never please all of the people all of the time. But your disgruntled (now former, I suppose) reader didn’t even bother to elaborate on what he had a beef about. You’d think that if they insisted on making such a production of their displeasure, they would at least tell you what provoked it. But, oh well, whatever. Though I chime in here only occasionally, I for one am happy with the proceedings, and I trust that goes for most readers who frequent this space.

    I was looking forward to seeing the ‘Lurlene’ strip once again. Seems like it wasn’t all that long ago. Come to think of it, it wasn’t. Though I tend to be annoyed by wordy comics, the verbiage works well here; the cop’s attempted description of the ongoing lunacy — not hard to imagine, considering all those involved — is very effective.

    You had to be there, as they often say, after trying in vain to explain some zany, improbable event. But since this is the Hubriverse, chances are that it would make no more sense even if you were there.
