    Nothing to highlight (e.g., my comment in the 2015 showing of this strip).

  8. 7 days ago on Cul de Sac

  9. 7 days ago on Cul de Sac

    I just clicked the link (gave me the date). These are on a 5 year rerun cycle. Since the link pointed to 2008, I just added 10. I actually made most of these blog entry comments 5 years ago; but, they used hyperlinks, which GoComics outlawed in comments during the interim. So, my 5 year old comments now are just words (don’t point to anything, unless GoComics reactivates hyperlinks in comments, and my roughly 20,000 comments that used them start pointing to things again).

    all have info, or links that point to more info, about the artist (again, askart.com can be read in full for free on Fridays), perhaps in addition to what’s pointed to by the title URL. This is a different caption repeat of the only work by him used here so far. 

    https://www.gocomics.com/that-is-priceless/2016/10/06?comments=visible 

    has the prior caption (my first comment there included one of the artist info URLs; my second comment there isn’t about this painting per se, but may be informative).
