So Heart of the City is part of the United Feature Syndicate pantheon for today only.
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!!
On April Fools day, some comic artists may swap strips for the day and draw the other person’s strip in their own style. The big one occurred in 1997.
Two of my favorite cartoonists swapping strips, ahhh!! I love both of these strips today so much!
Yep. That was pretty unforgettable.
Pretty on-model too.
Now that’s just silly. Comic characters age slower than in the real world because a 5 minute conversation takes 2 weeks to run in the comics. Time really slows down when it focuses on a constipated character in the washroom. An entire year can pass before there is any movement.
Yeah, I knew a kid who took three years to finish fifth grade… I didn’t realize he was on a spaceship – but this explains a lot.
Ooooo, I actually like this temporary style.
The characters of Luann must also be on this ship or another which is slowing time down by flying near the speed of light. Luann and her gang were in high school in 1985 and now they are in their 3rd year of college without repeating any year…
This artist draws them better than normal one. The normal artist blurs it all so my eyes hurt. Sorry Nancy.
Well, it IS time for us to abandon the Earth. She got that much right.
I love love love this!
Panel 3. Shatnerizing needs to be a word in the OED.
“Don’t you remember that time when the earth blew up? And we all got aboard the giant space ark? And we decided not the tell the stupid people because… wait a minute…” — Steve Martin
You’d think with all that slowed down time, Steenz could learn how to draw.
Thanks for that rabbit hole! I loved it. ;)
Bahahaha! I LOVE this today. I know this it an April Fool’s thing and an artist swap. However, one thing that drives me crazy are how serious people with wanting to compare comics to real life. One is complaints on how characters don’t grow up. I just always want to say to take deep breath. This is a comic. It’s okay. ; ) I so love this. Thank you.
Years ago Marvel comics had the assistant editors take over the comics, and everything went screwy.
Even the strip’s artwork after this feels kind of weird…more like a hybrid of Steenz and Jaimes. Just me?
