    PS I hope the conversational thread that will ensue, hopefully addresses subjects like our addiction to fear,.. domestic violence.. communication skills — not just Frank Herbert.

    Whoah! Powerful! You are definitely going where others fear to tread. One of my favorite passages of Frank Herbert’s.

    Bravo both for theme (“the 300 lb gorilla in the room that no one talks about”) and for your potent but understated treatment of it.

    A synchronicity: just yesterday I worked with a woman who is processing early life trauma, and two days previous, an Iraqui war vet who is dealing with some serious PTSD…This stuff is real! Scars are hidden!

    Anyway, bravo and kudos to you, Gavin! Keep up the terrific work.

    @ StCleve72, I hope you are less clueless now after all these comments!… Imagine visiting websites. New ones, old ones, all with ongoing commentary (like here!) — imagine this is your only contact with the “real world”. That, for dogs, is: bushes, trees, lamp posts. They smell 1000 times more than you or I do. It feeds a dog’s heart and soul. Any dog owner who thinks all they need is a workout is a naive person, and probably not a very good parent either….. Wiley, Tally Ho, way to go!

    I love this one. So simple, & powerful. They say simple creatures stick around longer, evolutionarily (like horseshoe crabs).

    I love the expressions on her face, but also the look on the ticket guy’s face too, a big galoot who’s maybe had a rough life but is still moved by children’s joy and enthusiasm.

    He reminds me of the character Pumbaa in the Lion Ling.

    Tally Ho, Gavin, & keep up the great work!

    You know what? I don’t know who they Kardashians are (except that they are rich, and famous); and I am just fine with that!
    Perhaps not coincidentally, I do not watch TV. I’m too busy doing lots of other great & rewarding stuff with my life.

    Still apropos after how many years? 30? The mark of a good comic strip is that it stands the test of time. Modernize his computer equipment & his hair, and it would fit right in in 2016; with our dual income households with latch key (or somewhat sidelined ) kids. No wonder they bond more with BioShock 2 , Pokemon Go, or MineCraft more than with mom and dad. Tally Ho, Future Shock! … Que sera sera!

    Beautiful! That courage is not only about quelling and destroying monsters and adversaries, but mastering our own blocks, fears, inhibitions! Sometimes the most challenging!!
    Splendid, Gavin! You rock!

    Hee hee! What a wonderful way to wake up!

    Downright Onion-esque in your contemporary surrealism reportage, Gary.

    @ Jack’s World, get a massage or a yoga class, your liver’s overheated, and you’re annoying.

    I understand that this is a metaphor for life – to stay disciplined, to stay mentally, spiritually and physically fit, alert, aware. As we know, 99% of us will not need to engage in physical conflict – swords, fists, kicks etc…. So why train w Kung Fu, or Yoga, or CrossFit, or Tai Ch, or weight training, or triathlon training etc? (Living in Boulder, and doing massage therapy for 35 yrs, I know ALL about these cultures…!) …. Anyway, it’s a very excellent metaphor for staying physically / mentally / spiritually fit ; I believe in sweating! But I do not know if your readership will get the non physical attributes of your comic strip. People are very literal (like Drax the Destroyer in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’) and often just don’t get metaphor & multiple meanings of stories. What is the ‘battle’ ? here does it take place? (Inside us?) ….. That said , Kudos 2 U, & keep up the great work, Gavin. You rock!
