    Most other strips also appear in newspapers around the world and are distributed by Andrews McMeel Universal Uclick (owner of GoComics). They are submitted for publication by the strip artist days if not weeks in advance and have the publication date either in a strip panel or between panels to tell the newspaper when to publish them. Hopefully, GoComics will remove whatever glitch is causing the delay in publishing the TIP strip; so, there won’t be any interruption in those future strips, submitted today, when they are published. Anyway, since GoComics already had those strips days before the Blackout, they appear as scheduled today.

    A Happy Thanksgiving

    https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/alfredo-rodriguez-a-happy-thanksgiving-475-c-c7b48329cd 

    has info and links that point to more info about this 2014, oil on linen painting. Don’t blame Mr. Melcher for the off date. He trusted the blog author where he found the image: 

    http://art-now-and-then.blogspot.com/2017/11/november-paintings.html 

    who listed the artist’s birth year as the painting’s date.

    Again, a slightly larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #115 (2/6/10) (November 16, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with my comment pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 13 works by this artist have been used here (14 times total, including this Throwback Thursday repeat), the March 13, 2012, strip being its first use (the innumerable hyperlinks in my comment there have been deactivated, and the line breaks removed, but perhaps the text remains informative). I say innumerable because I can’t count what I no longer have. Sadly, it was a comment I didn’t save before GoComics stopped supporting hyperlinks in comments. I hope at least one that read it back then found it informative. The September 14, 2022, strip is the prior non-repeat by him.
