I ran two weeks of reruns because my father passed away and I needed some time to regroup.
Fap you, Stephen
I’m not tearing down PEANUTS. I’m using it as the clearest cut example. Running repeats for years on end started with PEANUTS. There is no denying the meaning of this strip, if you are an avid comics reader.
I love PEANUTS too! But it’s been in fulltime repeats in newspapers all over the world since 2000, taking up vital comics real estate. There certainly is a place for reprints, and that’s in books, where they can be reread and studied. The daily newspaper is supposed to of the moment and new. Filling the comics pages with repeated strips for years on end just increases the public perception that newspapers are stale and dated.
No lie…this is how I met my wife, some 28 years ago. We’re still glued together!
Yeah, I think the PINK FLOYD imagery still sticks with me, thirty years later! The cartoons from The Wall are still so disturbing and cool! That inspires me…I’m going to have to do a “Lio as Pink” strip…I’m thinking maybe “The Trial”!
Oh, I see! It’s all the same guy, and he has different facial hair in each and then he…uh…nope.I’m still lost.
I’m lost…who are these guys, and why is one of them thinking about LIO?
Lio definitely prefers a captive audience.
I remember childhood, jr high through high school, as one giant bowl of unrequited love. And the more I was rejected, the more I wanted whoever she was. Eva hates Lio so much, she often tries to kill him, which just makes Lio fall that much deeper.
