    It is possible that the general store near the remote cabin in the woods in whatever Southern forest where Nancy and Fritzi are spending their winter vacation because come on that’s not their house and Nancy is not dressed for cold weather so obviously this isn’t taking place at home…where was I? Oh right, it’s possible that this rustic general store doesn’t truck with newfangled ideers like egg cartons, and you just pick a dozen out of a barrel or whatever.

    Pretty obvious that Glynn’s tracing Trudeau here, rather than trying it freehand.

    The “apologies to Chris Browne” in the margin indicates that this is a Hägar take-off (as we all suspected), but that the apologies are to Chris and not to his father, Dik, the originator of the strip, tells us that this wouldn’t be the very first strip. I checked, and it’s not Chris’ first strip, either.

    Fritzi had some material left over from the dress she wore last week.

    Is it canon that Glynn’s arms are so ridiculously short that he can’t give a proper high-five in the third panel? Those are some serious T. rex arms there.

    smacks head

    YES, #4 is supposed to be Pogo’s. Blame the sagginess on JFG. Just like the overdrawn lines on #2 are his sloppiness and not in keeping with Watterson’s rendering of Calvin’s shirt. (Or Schultz’s; if you do an image search for Linus Van Pelt, you discover that his shirt and Calvin’s are pretty much interchangeable.)

    Thanks.
