    You’re not only guest-writing with Brian Walker, you’re also guest-writing with everyone else that guest-wrote with him. Remember, people, practice safe guest-writing. Use a pseudonym.

    I suspect this one might offend some of our more sensitive readers, particularly those who don’t like toilet humour, or smut. I loved it.

    H & L is too often…..overly gooey. I suspect Pastis could enhance the readership if he guest-wrote their actual strip for a while….or not.

    After working with Watterson, Pastis is hoping to make a career of guesting. With luck, he’ll find his match. (I suggest contacting Jim Davis again, and try to fix those broken bridges. Davis would pull in the BIG bucks.)

    I don’t find this objectionable……….just stupid. Pastis is acting rather erratic lately if it is acting.

    So is this Steph’s part in the internet slow down, because everything came to a halt just now.

    Ok I am the complete lamoid I don’t get it. I know there is typical Pastis puns in there but I cannot figure out the association.

    I like when for April Fool’s Day the cartoonists would draw each others strips. It was always neat to see a new perspective.

    Meanwhile Stephan drew Lois perfectly. Hi is a bit off though.

    Now I want Steph to guest-write a cartoon for “Ripley’s” and for “Garfield”!As for “Krazy Kat”, he’ll have a hard time getting Herriman’s permission!

    This is hilarious. I laughed our loud. A lot of the comics are funny, but very few get a reaction from me like this.

    Mort Walker wasn’t all prim and proper family fare. Check out one such book released abroad: Awesome Swedish Collection of Censored Mort Walker Thumbnails By Mort Walker.

    Notice the ‘*’. Between panels 1 & 2 it says “This is not true. Stephan is lying.”

    Well, THAT made absolutely no sense at all.

    Could have been much worse. I was expecting Pastis to have Hi leave Trixie locked in the car with Mr. Sunbeam.

    Do you take request? Do “Family Circus”! If you did already, do “A Rose is a Rose”!

    According to Wikipedia, “Hi” is short for “Hiram” in the comic and Lois is Beetle Bailey’s brother. Never knew.

    I’d love to see Goat get it on with Blondie … or one of the Crocs, maybe.:Goat getting it on with one of the crocs? Unless It’s Larry’s wife, I’d rather not see that.

    Hi-larious, Cartoon-Boy! I am surprised at the 21st century prudery evinced by your decidedly non-explicit strip (though with a heavy dose—of implication, of course)….

    Hi and Lois was co-created by MORT Walker. Brian is carrying on the family business by co-producing strips now with Dik Browne’s son Chance.
