    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.

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

    This comic doesn’t even belong here, it’s dated 2003.

    These four strips (Jan 1-4) were posted by mistake under 2002, they belong to 2003, and can also be found under their correct dates.

    In case anyone hasn’t noticed, it turns out that Leigh did his homework. Just compare the symbols he drew to any random tourist-quality heiroglyphic conversion chart, and the text “beware eternal curse” really is recognizable.

    This seems to have been posted a day late, I almost missed it.

  10. mkilby commented on Little Nemo 2 months ago

    The “several” in the caption above is an understatement. The Comic Strip Library has twelve subsequent Nemo pages from the Herald (up to 23-Jul-1911). Unfortunately, neither the artwork nor the coloring in these 12 pages come anywhere close to the complexity that we’ve seen here lately.
    CSL continues (seamlessly) with Nemo as it appeared in the New York American, starting on 3-Sep-1911, in which the artwork seems to return to form.
