For help on how to follow a comic title,
“I’m jus’ here t’ tell the readers that the whole Wallet family done up an’ moved away, and ain’t never gonna be seen agin. It’s jus’ gonna be yo’ an’ me an’ Miz Mayor Melba an’ that feller works in every store in town, now an’ forever, until th’ sun goes out.”
Reminds me of PeeJee Shou in Randy Milholland’s “Something Positive.”
Is Joe inking himself this week? The art looks different.
Nice to hear that Tony Rocky Horror eventually came back from that misunderstanding with Marcellus Wallace’s wife.
Clovia turns 70 this summer.
Might be nice to see Skeezix and Nina celebrating their anniversary in the strip. I’m guessing we won’t get that, though.
Boy, if Crystal collects unusual names, she’s definitely in the right strip.
Retconning Warbucks’ marriages so they were before he met Annie would be like retconning Tracy’s past so that he didn’t meet Tess until after her father was killed.
I had a couple of co-workers in the late ‘80s-early ’90s who smoked so much they actually killed their smokeless ashtrays (which were only partially effective to begin with, but still…). Yes, I’m old enough to remember when smoking was allowed in most workplaces.
So that Melba can drop in unexpectedly, find Willow there, and then a farcical misunderstanding can ensue, and OH MY GOD THERE ARE FIFTY FREAKIN’ CHARACTERS IN THIS STRIP WHY DO WE HAVE TO SPEND MONTHS WITH THIS GUY?
