Ah, it’s the would’ve-been one hundred first birthday of the writer of Dennis the Menace! I Almost couldn’t tell with the girls’ art form nor read the small square in the final panel. ¡Bien hecho, los señores Cantú y Castellanos!
Thanx, Temp. I was wondering what was going on.
Gracie looks different, but not Carmen. That threw me.
Also, another day where the Spanish and English translations do not line up.
Nora looks different.
Gracie knows her Tia Carmen.
this is in memory of Hank Ketchem…..if you don’t know who that is, he drew Dennis the Menace
I’m surprised that so many people didn’t immediately recognize this as a Dennis-the-Menace tribute. Maybe after they’ve been reading comics for seventy years.
Why wasn’t this done last year for the 100th? Perhaps because in 2020 March 14 was a Saturday? Or perhaps C&C just didn’t notice in time. In any case, I’m happy to see the tribute.
I KNEW the artist was different, but it took me a while to catch the Hank Ketcham reference – Dennis the Menace. VERY well done; thanks.
It’s apt that they’re giving tribute to Hank Ketcham while also giving Gracie a passing resemblance to Gina Gillotti.
Very nice tribute. I recognized the Hank Ketcham style/format immediately. But my initial response was, “What the heck? A guest artist?”
Looks like Tia Carmen is talking to Dennis’s mom in the first panel.
I recognized the cartoon of Dennis The Menace’s mom in the first panel but didn’t understand the significance until reading Templo’s comment.
Ah, that’s why! :-)
What a nice tribute to a much beloved artist!
Grace the men-ACE.
Por Favor Mucho Grande(pardon my Spanish but I do love cake)……
What a great tribute. Gracie looks like Dennis. And Mrs. Mitchel is visiting. Happy 100th birthday, Hank Ketcham.
Love the tiny cactus.
If you’re ever in Monterey, California, there’s a park there dedicated to him.
Really nice tribute!
