    @jbonnar, Thanks, I didn’t know this one.

    The trailer for Justice League, and what little we saw of him in Batman v Superman, looks like the movie universe is going to make Aquaman cool again, or try to. He’s Jason Momoa from Game of Thrones – hard to go wrong with that casting.

    Looks like with the new once-a-week format, certain things are going to be left up to the readers to intuit from clear implication – obviously, Evie and her husband have moved back, or are having a summer visit, from South Africa, and no story is to be written about that, because it wouldn’t fit into the new Sunday strip format. They have to be one-off gags with no more continued stories. I actually think Jan is doing a good job putting a lot of content into only one strip a week.

    @whiteheron, I don’t think you can blame “the poor tools” for mosquitoes, fleas, lice, malaria, polio, measles (and a thousand other infectious bacteria and viruses), tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, tidal waves, famines, droughts, or “nature red in tooth and claw”, with horrible, bloody, violent suffering of animals out in the wild every day. Nature is cruel. If the “Creator of the Universe” is all-good, all-knowing, and all-powerful, I don’t think he or she did a very good job, based on all the suffering I see in the world, not caused by humans. That “creator” seems to me to be either inept or a sadist. My conclusion: There is no such thing as a creator. The universe, the “cosmos” as Carl Sagan put it, “is all there ever was, all there will ever be.” As finite humans, we should do what we can to spread joy and ease pain, and appreciate to the fullest our brief time to be alive.

    I love “Monty”. It’s one of my favorite strips. It has a big cast of characters, and you never know where the story will be. It’s not always focused on Monty. It could be his cat Fleshy, the robot, the time-traveling doctor, Moondog, or Sedgewick and Jarvis. I especially like the Sedgie strips.

    Hmm, Hobbes as a stuffed toy doesn’t usually appear so big. He’s taller than Calvin in those panels. I wonder what was up with the change in apparent size.

    With the way Jarvis claps and commands the cook, and presumably the rest of the staff, I’m now seeing him as played by the same actor who plays Mr. Carson in “Downton Abbey”.

    Our school system started school today. I keep wondering when comic strip artists are going to catch up with the times. School starts in early August. Some systems start in July.

    Talking about ear worms, I’ve had “No More Kings” from the 1970’s “Schoolhouse Rock” series stuck in my head for weeks. I go to bed at night with it playing in my head, and I wake up in the morning with it still playing. If you grew up in the 70’s you may not remember, but listen to it just one time on YouTube and you’ll see what I mean.
    “Rockin’ and a rollin’, splishin’ and a splashin, over the horizon what could it be…”

    The joke about the stormtroopers is that they are terrible shots and can’t hit anything. They have the main characters hopelessly outnumbered throughout the original movie, yet no main character ever get hit, while the stormtroopers get hit by the dozens. Also, white armor at a paintball match. And, this is a strip about geeks, so a certain level of pop cultural geek knowledge is reasonably expected from the target audience.
