    The extended letter conclusively demonstates an irritating detail in the way the three caption lines are normally presented in this feature. The year needs to be removed from the title text, and placed either with the artist’s name (above), or with the materials (below). This applies not just to today’s masterpiece, but to ALL of these “priceless” gems.

    I actually prefer daily comics in black and white. It reminds me of reading them in the newspapers.

    For her next trick, she’ll try to teach radio interviewees not to introduce each of their answers with “So…,”

    I’d like to think that Breathed re-drew all of these (it even seems likely for the Minion and possibly for Hobbes), but Dory seems to show that at least one, and possibly all of the Disney characters were copy/pasted.

    “Oh, the humanity…!”

    I applaud the decision to take Oliphant off of the main menu of editorial cartoonists, but I don’t think this feature should ever be removed from GoComics entirely. First, Oliphant has not officially retired, he’s merely (de facto) stopped drawing (for now). Second, even if he were to retire, this feature is a valuable archive for his previous work, reaching all the way back to March 1980. It would be hard to find a “title page” for this archive that is better than the cartoon presented here.

    I really wish I had come back here in time to catch those reprinted pages in “Richard’s Poor Almanac”. Unfortunately, it appears that GoComics has deleted them from the archive. Reviewing backwards from August 13th produces a placeholder image that says “This comic is currently unavailable”.

    But it wasn’t a total loss: it was wonderful to read the comment by Tom Hyland (see above), and to know that Oliphant is still around. If he’s not drawing, at least he’s doing so by his own choice.

    This reminds me of Gahan Wilson’s I think I won! panel.

    (Little) Feats don’t fail me now!

    It could be Mad King Ludwig on his final (“involuntary baptismal”) journey.
