Yeah, I don’t remember seeing the earliest strips before. Very glad it’s come back into the rotation.
It’s always weird to see Norm Feuti illustrating my childhood.
The Silver Eggheads, Fritz Leiber (1964). Fun but also slightly dopey science fiction novel.
(The Authors, who’re paid to dress up in stylish and ridiculous costumes and pose for the back covers of books and be gossip-worthy celebrities, destroy the book-writing machines because they want to do more than just pick a first word and let the predictive text do the rest. Then they realize writing, like, the tenth word is really hard.)
Oh, this is a great one.
I once deeply unsettled a friend who quite liked squirrels, but didn’t know their ankles could twist like that, by sharing this information.

That’s the Ravine Flyer II, only at Waldameer Park in Erie, Pennsylvania. Great place.
I’d say I feel very called out by this strip except that it also correctly depicts me going to the supermarket and trying to work this afternoon.
Yeah; I often talk about how Skippy is that rare pre-1950 comic strip that still reads as funny today. But this one’s really grimly funny.
