Reminds me of a Cure song:“on candy stripe legs the spider-cat comessoftly through the shadows of the evening sun”
What a gem! I love how the cat stayed cute instead of menacing. Plus the way Newell flips the color scheme between panel 4 and 5 with the drapes as something of a transition. Outstanding!
“Unique” must mean something different in this context.
Did these cartoonists get kickbacks from optometrists?
No, these were for full-size broadsheet pages, 22" wide. Unless you’re reading these about one row at a time on a 27” screen or so, or on a 40" screen in portrait mode, or blowing them up to be wider than your screen is. you’re not seeing them at the intended size.
Use the zoom function in the middle of the strip…you really need to with these old strips (JWK explains it well), but it’s worth it.
This one is quite clever, if not nearly as well-drawn as Little Nemo.
