Haha! I just had such a spiritual meditation! I can’t wait to monetize it!
I have a friend who is a lovely woman with two great daughters and she is in an interracial marriage. They have very dark tinting on their car windows so as to have privacy when they travel – possibly from prying eyes / comments of people who are bigots. It happens. I wonder if this hot-button issue will be addressed in the Luaniverse? In the TrekConnect convention there will be no doubt a preponderance of liberal minded people for whom this is a total non issue (this is Star Trek after all!) but to pretend that the whole world (or the whole USA) is nonjudgemental would be naive. Up to you, Greg & Co! I wish the best for dear Gunther and Bets!
Oh Don and Pat, this one cracked me up! (My wife sings … I enthusiastically bray!)
Beautiful, Gavin! So few remember Einstein as a < young man > – (or as a not happy patent employee, I think) … your quote is terrific; (I have posted its abbreviated version) and it’s so nice to see it in it’s longer version. (Higher res). Though not a saint (who is?) he’s definitely on my biography must-read list! Thanks again!
Love this!! Kids do surrealism like mice eat cheese! Rock on, Rick!
Egad! Female libido acknowleged in middle aged people in a family comic strip? Will wonders never cease! Tally Ho, Greg!
Poignant. Beautiful. Sad. Ambiguous. And not glossed over — as we know, sometimes the dream turns out to be a slog. No, she isn’t going to be an astronaut - but maybe she will hike some wonderful adventure hikes (with or without) Joe! (If they’re smart!) They are still so young. Maybe she’ll take guitar lessons & start performing at open mike nights. If Joe there is a selfish dickhead (and he does seem like one), and doesn’t let her start to pursue her own dreams, as well, she has to make a call— is this life with him worth it, or should she cut him loose? We don’t know: what is life like for them (for HER too) outside of working the Cafe? Is there laughter (doesn’t seem like it) ? Is there music (don’t see any) ? Is there rewarding sex (no data.) ? We don’t know but it’s pretty grim lookin. It’s a challenge being self employed (I know this, as does my wife!) Maybe it’s worth it, having a partner & not being alone. That’s the beauty of this strip, the ambiguity of that hand grasp (in the last panel) - we know the price she has paid but not (all of) the rewards…. So yea, really sad but I think not without hope. Life does not end at 40 (contrary to what many 34 year olds may think). Thanks again, Gavin! Carpe Diem!
Professor Dahl was working on a book, “James and the Giant Dog Chew”, but subsequently opted to go with fruit instead.
Wow, just wow. Gavin, that is such a delicious Christmas present. Thank you, man. You redeem the comics medium. Keep up the great work!
Awesome, Joe, !! Multiple punch lines! No names mentioned; no need to! This one is up there with Walt Kelly’s Pogo (who as you probably know, did some awesome satire about evil Senator Joe McCarthy…) But not to digress — bravo and kudos to you! Sharing !
