    This time, Richard’s blog entry (copy as one long line):

     

    http://richardspooralmanac.blogspot.com/2011/12/yesterdays-cul-de-sac-december-3-2011.html

     

    covered the last 2 non-Sunday strips. The here link Richard pointed to has moved to this archived webpage (again, copy as one long line):

    This is from November 10, 2002 (the 11-10 in P5 – 1st panel, 2nd row, and the ©2002 between the last 2 panels; also 11/10/02 is a Sunday, if the ©2002 is hard to see).

     

    Willie first showed up about 7½ years later, in the June 7, 2010, strip, though the archive

    has different colors than creators.com

    Last Sunday skipped 2 strips in the sequence. This time, 3 weeks of strips were skipped.

     

    In the past, Mr. Thompson has been showing pages from one of his books on Sundays. I don’t know if the strips were also skipped in the book.

     

    When I asked GoComics about another strip a couple years ago, I was told the author decides what strip to publish on what day.

     

    So, as far as I know, skipping the strips was Mr. Thompson’s choice, not GoComics. He sometimes comments here; he can refute that if I’m wrong.

    This is from 1997. If you look at the archive for the original strip, all the 1997 Sunday strips are missing (or maybe Jan took Sunday off). This is actually the first 1997 Monday strip:

     

    http://www.gocomics.com/stonesoup/1997/01/06

     

    (showed up here on Saturday). Again, I’m just answering the question.

     

    P.S. If you look further in the archive, you’ll see other strips are missing (a whole week of March, 1997, strips, for example).

    Too big in my GC e-mail (almost got dizzy trying to scroll up and down), so I had to use the side-by-side image – Thanks, SusanShine!.

     

    I only found 7 this time, until I looked at x_Tech’s solution (Thank you, too!).

     

    One I missed, I should have seen. The other was extremely subtle – maybe I dismissed it because of other uncounted differences around it (a tick mark, or whatever, etc., not in the other).

     

    nighthawks (from yesterday): it looked centered to me (hadn’t really noticed it slightly shifted to the right) – thought GC handled that. Do you have to specify the coordinates of the image?? (that seems oppressive to me)

    It’s been more than a year.

     

    http://www.gocomics.com/cleo-and-company/2015/11/06

     

    But, the embedded strip image is larger this time. It’s the same .gif file. Like now, it was centered last time, but the left edge was under the d in the title, not under the first C. I wonder why.

    2 URLs (copy each as one line):

     

    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marie-Louise_Bion_Der_junge_Schiffsbauer.jpg

     

    has info and links that point to info about this painting (best viewed by Google Chrome – can automatically translate linked pages, if necessary).

     

    http://www.frauenarchivostschweiz.ch/portraits.html

     

    has a short bio for this artist (no Wikipedia page) in German (again, Chrome is recommended; click her name to expand her bio, not sure who is in the portrait).

     

    So far, this isn’t in Mr. Melcher’s blog, accessible by the Check Out The Blog! box in the right hand column. Perhaps it’ll be there later.

    has a short bio for this artist in Danish (best translated by Chrome, especially what its hyperlinks point to).

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s blog entry for yesterday (November 30, 2016), accessible by the Check Out The Blog! box in the right hand column; so, I won’t point to it here.

    was its first appearance (back when images could still be embedded, obvious it’s a rerun by the lack of name changes).

     

    https://themanofesto.com/2016/08/25/80s-movie-maniathe-sweet-sixteen-part-2/

     

    also has SusanSunshine’s image, but, as a much shorter URL:

    Didn’t say anything back then, but, I think having Jake face forward (here), rather than from the side, was an improvement, StelBel. ;-)

     

    Not sure what’s left of his ear though – oh, now I get it, smoke from his cigarette (also not in the original – at least not in any I found; I wonder if showing that in a poster was frowned upon in 1980).

    Doesn’t look much like Rip in the driver’s seat in P3.
