I did … and I’m giving it a chance. But, giving it a real chance means not comparing it to what Tatulli did, at least for me. I’ll be looking at it as a new strip, despite the familar names.
I always appreciated Tatulli’s ability to weave depth of meaning into the strip, whether in the dialog or in nuances of expression. I haven’t yet seen that in the Steenz reboot. It’s still early for her, and maybe she’ll find a way, but she has big shoes to fill.
So, this is permanent. From Mark Tatulli himself: https://www.instagram.com/p/B_P8FIRhM99/

I assume the LaBans put out this strip for catharsis rather than to be funny: They grew up and live in the snow belt, so it’s their normal just like it’s my normal.
Oops. Not sure how I got my stories crossed.
It may be near you (and is near me), but in many places it isn’t. The DeGroots are somewhere in Canada, so let’s look at Toronto: Current median detached home price there is C$ 849,000. However, in Vancouver, or in many US west coast cities, that won’t even buy a fixer-upper. Even in places like Calgary, median price is around a half million C$, so C$650,000 would be just a little bit big.
Joe has 13 1/3 gumballs? How do you get 1/3 of a gumball, and why would you keep it?
The teacher takes away 15 from Jack and 3 1/3 from Joe, so I guess Joe doesn’t need to worry about it anymore, but still….
Birthdays as an adult — nailed it
And yes, really.
