    Is this somebody we should know?

    Trudeau may be the only modern cartoonist who hasn’t made a hash of aging his characters.

    Cute, but I was sort of hoping JS would serve up some of Walt’s “real” history. After the death if Walt’s wife Phyllis (Aunt Blossom), there were some flashbacks to the early days of the strip when Phyllis was a mysterious young widow somehow connected to Skeezix’s natural mother, an irresponsible opera star. JS wrapped it up nicely with a surprise that made perfect sense.

    Comic strips characters “sharing ink” sounds immoral, or at least a bit naughty.

    For those who really want to know, there’s an excellent series of Mary Perkins reprint books. Somewhere between a soap and an adventure strip, it follows Mary from small-town hopeful to established actress, set against realistic 50s-60s Broadway and Hollywood. The artist, Leonard Starr, eventually retired the strip and launched an excellent revival of Little Orphan Annie (another team succeeded him; they recently ended the strip).

    How old are the guys who write this? A few years back they had the aunt remembering a vacation romance with a suave tour guide — Gordo Lopez, hero of a great but long out of print comic strip.

    And yes, I’m a geezer myself for remembering Gordo and the Frito Bandito. I had a Frito Bandito pencil eraser for years.

    Anyone who doesn’t get this should find and watch “The Black Pirate” as soon as possible. It’s a silent adventure film with Fairbanks being the kind of swashbuckler Captain Sparrow thinks he is. Exciting, over the top and intentionally funny when Doug gets playful. And it’s in an early form of Technicolor.

    Anyway, Fairbanks pulls this stunt while in the process of taking a Spanish galleon single handed.

    Or she might explain why their son looks so much like Jeff.

    So Papi visualizes Baldo getting back together with Smiley?

    I’m surprised that girl-next-door Smiley vanished so completely. She went from nice kid in overalls to Paris Hilton wannabe, but never actually moved away. Always thought she was being saved for future culture clash.
