For help on how to follow a comic title,
It looks like Ziggy picked up a shell being used by Hawthorne the Hermit Crab from the strip “Sherman’s Lagoon”!
“I find that the 1970s are the 1960s of the ’90s.”
It might not make any sense, but it sounds brilliant!
The “E” word? Whatever do you mean, Namrepus? Earbuds? Eggnog? Elephants?
Maybe it’s obvious to you, but I don’t quite understand how Esperanto can help them at this point.
According to a PDF flyer I once saw, “nine out of ten aliens speak Esperanto.” (You can google that phrase to find the flyer.)
The flyer even has contact information in the Quux alien language.
So my guess is that they’re either speaking Quux or Esperanto (with a different character set, of course). And if it really is Esperanto, there are plenty of books to help you translate.
(Disclaimer: Don’t take this comment too seriously.)
I didn’t find today’s cartoon particularly “ha-ha” funny, but the setup (Garfield wearing refined clothes, drinking coffee with his pinky extended) made it stand out for me.
When you lose track of the days of the week, sometimes you’re reminded which day it is by seeing something that happens once a week.
In this case, it’s putting the trash out.
And for bonus humor, if you look closely, you’ll see a worm-hole near the trash can, implying that the worm family has garbage service.
Is it just me, or does it look like Nate and Dee Dee are bonding?
Shouldn’t the last panel read:“Repeat Panels 2 though 6” ?
This superhero reminds me of “Stardust The Super Wizard” by Fletcher Hanks, a comic back in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Because of his vast interplanetary knowledge, Stardust is the most remarkable man every lived.
He uses rays (just like the “Power Ray” used above) to apprehend all the bad guys. The stories are not very profound, but they are fun read to get a feel for the Golden Age of comic books.
(If this interests you, many of his comics are in the compilation “I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets” by Fletcher Hanks and Paul Karasik.)
This strip today brings back a memory…
I’ve had someone say to me “That doesn’t count.” And that person later claimed not to remember saying that. (Apparently it wasn’t very memorable for both of us, just one of us.)
Regardless, it doesn’t feel very good to have it said about you.
