    Looks like she broke out in a cold sweat.

    Everything’s better with Blue Bonnet on it — except Blue’s axillary icicles.

    NEVER let see you sweat. (In THIS case, it would be fatal !)

    OMG! I’ve noticed the EXACT same thing. There are definitely more examples of the Argyle Sweater duplicating the same concepts first used by Max Garcia. Both cartoons appear in my local paper and I see this happen on a fairly regular basis. I understand that people can occasionally land on the same ideas, but I consistently see the Argyle Sweater follow Max’s work with nearly identical comics. Too much for it to just be dismissed as coincidence, if you ask me. Coincidence is fine, and even mimicking certain aspects of another cartoonnists style or humor is understandable, but It’s not fair for an established cartoonist to consistently yank ideas from an up and comer. This is nothing new by the way. Stylistically speaking, The Argyle Sweater is clearly a ripoff of the Farside and now it looks like he has found a new victim.

    “If you copy from one author, it’s plagiarism, but if you copy from many, it’s research.” Hilburn’s a researcher, he steals from many.
    “Good artists borrow, great artists steal.”
    Maybe he’s just a great artist.
    It’s gotta be tuff coming up with a new idea daily. I know many will disagree but I’m willing to give him a pass…he makes me laugh.
