Whaddyaknow, she’s right! May 6, 2018 is the first strip where she has them.

Well, they do say the color of the Universe is “Cosmic Latte.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmic_latte
It’s nice to see Gemini-Titan getting some love! The only nit to pick is that the flames are too colorful; the Titan (“something”-zines) burned nearly invisibly. But I guess the movies have conditioned you to expect planet-shattering kabooms and phaser pew-pews in a vacuum, and visible rocket plumes.
Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Your father’s strip was an oasis in an increasingly dry and humorless world. His gentle spirit will be missed.

Yay! I like the strip in B/W too, but if you’re going to put yourself to the trouble of coloring it, by Saint Eligius I want to see it! (-:
I didn’t see a survey but I submitted feedback that I prefer the strip in color (although I’ll admit I don’t miss it on the B/W days) and got “Your email will be forwarded to the appropriate department” in response. It never hurts to ask for what I want, I reckon.
I bloody HATE radio. I only have about a fifteen-minute drive to work which means twice a day I listen to about five minutes of radio static as I flip through channels trying to find some music, five minutes of commercials when I finally give up and pick a station, and five minutes of one song ending and another beginning, with the DJ blathering in between about everything except the blessed name of the artist or song. Thank Euterpe for the CD player in my truck. I used to get classical music samplers from BBC Music and similar magazines every month and now I have an enormous collection, very few of which I can remember the names of, but love listening to.
Anyway, I originally came in to say I absolutely love Schroeder’s expression in the last panel. That’s how I feel all the time now. ▪⌢▪
I wrote one of those, too! In mine, the kid was so busy looking down for more money that he never looked up to see what the world had to offer, and so never found anything to spend it on.
