    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.

    The cap also appears in this version, between 11:55 – 12:00:

    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.

    Continuing with the supernatural (and animal) theme, here are several Halloween strips from Little Dog Lost, which can truly be described as haunting:

    So they activated the zoom feature for the original run, yet not the rerun. Go figure. It’s not that I have trouble reading the strips (usually), but many of them (especially the Sundays) look so much better enlarged.

    That instantly reminded me of the June 2, 2013 strip of Raising Duncan:



    While I have never seen a ghost — animal or otherwise — I have heard enough stories through the years that have convinced me not to discount the possibility of their existence. Don’t know if I’ll ever encounter one; part of me would like to, and yet… as they say, careful what you wish for.

    Or would that be a — Ponching bag?

    “It’s like people who believe that everything a songwriter sings is strictly autobiographical.”

    Yup; Richard Thompson once stated that on every album sleeve should be the disclaimer: “The views of the singer are not necessarily those of the songwriter.” And I daresay that often applies even when singer and songwriter are one and the same. Ditto comic strips artists and the characters they create.
