Not a comment on this strip, but “The Buckets” as a whole. I wanted to get my daughter-in-law, a non-comic reader, a book of cartoons as a gift, and considered the very many strips I enjoy, to find what I thought was the best. (I got her husband, my son, a couple of Citizen Dog books.) I think The Buckets is the best drawn and written family strip around, but I’m going to have to get something else I guess. Scott Stantis got a book out of the strip after writing it for 5 years, and Greg has nothing to show for 12 years? I really think Greg’s stuff is better than Scott’s. I guess I’m going to have to go buy a Baby Blues (TONS of books) or an Adam@Home (several books), but don’t have the little kid teenager mix I would really prefer. ZITS is fantastic, but no small kids. I don’t know what the circulation is, I’m sure it’s good, but wouldn’t it be even better if fans could share it with might-become-fans? So I guess this is a complaint and a request. Please roll the presses.
