Pibgorn has a new strip up today. Do either of them call it a daily? They’re not in newspapers.
There’s been several new strips on the Facebook page. I don’t understand why they haven’t been put up here.
The storyline started on June 7th, 1993. They skipped a week and a half of it. I can’t imagine why.
Eh, it’s what I expect, really. These “Minit Mysteries” aren’t long enough to really go into the details of means, motive and opportunity, and motive usually gets the least of the three. We got some idea about motive last Sunday.
Really, the main purpose seems to be a small diversion, with a guest artist and a crossover with a long gone strip.
I think most of the original Rick O’Shay strips were lost in a fire, so it might be hard to find them in a quality fit for reproduction.
As for a Rick O’Shay/Dick Tracy crossover, I see some problems with chronology. Maybe if The Great Am got involved. :-D
It was his project. He chose to make the film in the first place. He produced and starred in it. So yes, I do believe it was his fault.
There’s nothing wrong with actors having a passion project, of course. It only means that, good or bad, you have to lay the responsibility on them. Deadpool was Ryan Reynold’s passion project.
This strip is from June 5th, 1993. The year is in the copyright message between the first two panels, and from there it was relatively easy to find in the GoComics archives.
Pulp Fiction premiered in the USA in September 1994. Before that, John Travolta’s most recent movies had been the Look Who’s Talking series. Not a high point of his career, exactly, so that’s probably where Mark is coming from in this strip. All the other movies mentioned here came later.
Battlefield Earth came years later, and I don’t think anyone calls it another “comeback.” Rather, it was a passion project of his.
Well, the very nature of reruns is that they’ve been shown before. Some particular strips may be more famous than others, which makes one remember them better, and they might have been reprinted in other places. But I have not noticed any “loop” here. When the “Dilbert Classics” reruns started in 2012, they showed the first strips from 1989, 23 years ago. The one year difference between then and now could be a round off error, as I don’t have the exact dates.
I’m not sure exactly what you mean, but this is “Dilbert Classics,” which shows strips from 1995, 24 years ago. The current Dilbert strip hasn’t been on GoComics for some time, but can of course be found on dilbert.com.
Sam seems awfully calm in panel 7 if she’s never seen this before.
