Regarding “Garfield Classics” being removed from this site, I thought I would post one more time on something that I posted in a few of yesterday’s comments. I am just as upset as most of you about the Classics cartoon being eliminated, and with no warning whatsoever that it was going away. I’m afraid that is going to become the fate of other cartoons on this site. I am therefore trying to drum up some interest in another comic that some of you may not have read or are not aware is on CG. This site has really not given any support, enthusiasm or promotion for what is likely one of the absolute best classic comic series on these pages, so I will do that for them.
If you have not checked it out before now, I would highly recommend “Bozo” by Foxo Reardon. It has been posted on GC by Foxo’s son, Michael Reardon. It is the first truly pantomime strip that ran in the newspapers. You can read the full story of Francis Xavier Reardon in the “About” section of the comic page. Foxo (as he was known) was a truly gifted artist and comic writer. The details in each comic strip are downright amazing. The series of “Bozo” on CG originally ran from 1946 until Foxo’s untimely passing in November 1955. The strips are a visual and comedic treat. The group of us that comment on an almost daily basis keep everything lighthearted and fun and clean, and we do not discuss daily events. That’s what the editorial comics are for. Take a look if you’re interested, and feel free to subscribe if you so choose. We’d love to have you join our group of classic comic enthusiasts!
