a very serious comicEntry Level Target Employee LARP
I got this from www.nataliedee.com(8)
It’s been a few weeks now since I have posted. I just haven’t found anything too compelling to post, until today. I give you Axe Cop. Written by a 5 year old, and illustrated by his 30 year old brother. Very Charming.(12)
Cats truly don’t care, and I love them for it.
I think I haven’t found something new that I like in years. Yesterday for example I was talking about a comedian I’ve been a fan of forever. Johnny Ryan is another example, maybe there is someone newer and better than him but I’m not bored of him yet. His new book Prison Pit: Book One is a bit of a departure for him, it’s an epic fantasy story about a hooded convict whose head is somehow covered in blood for the whole story and the various fights he gets into.

Charles Addams (II)
This one I’d never seen before:
More Charles Addams at Hairy Green Eyeball II.(2)
Buz Sawyer/Rosco Sweeney
I learned about this from potrzebie and then from wikipedia. These are Sunday comics about Rosco Sweeney, navy man. Newspapers are doomed when they take everything big, bold, colorful or creative like this out and expect people to cough up $2.00 for something they can get for free on their cell phone. Are there even people around who can still draw like this?
Here we see Roscoe coming ashore and meeting up with a mute woman. None of the pretty girls in this story seem to be able to talk, they just look pretty. (more…)(1)
Peter Arno – drawing board
It’s crazy how much more influential cartoonists were in the past compared to now. People now will refer to a situation as being like something out of Dilbert or my coworker will be like “damn I feel like motherfucking Slylock Fox today” but I think cartoons now are not where new terms get coined. Am I wrong? That’s just my idea of course I wasn’t born until ten years after Peter Arno died. The cartoon on the left is Arno’s most significant contribution to the english language. This wasn’t a phrase people said until after this was published. How different would your life be if he never wrote that caption and instead had just had the guy saying “Back to the planning stages” (more…)(1)
Flash Gordon – “oh flash, kiss me”
You know this comic strip is still printed weekly in newspapers today? Why doesn’t King Features Syndicate promote their stuff online? Oh yeah, because they make their money selling to newspapers so any online marketing would undercut their main business. Well, have fun riding the newspaper industry’s coattails, there’s a real bright future there.
Also this art doesn’t look pretty to me. How has the art taken this much of a step backward since art in the 1930s? Is it cause noone will work for $1.50 a week anymore?
I really liked the early 80s FG movie by the way, when is it going to get remade again? I’m ready.

Beetle Bailey – collection
Here we return to Camp Swampy where we learn about the hobbies of the men stationed there. Corporal Yo seems to have a pretty grim existence cause he doesn’t collect anything and just sits on his bed asking Sarge questions. Left unmentioned is General Halftrack’s collection of sexual harassment lawsuits. In fact it seems like Mort Walker(‘s minion) is saying that collecting anything is a hobby for lower class men and dogs, since none of the officers, MP’s or women have any collections at all.
I especially like that Killer is shown beating off. He used to be a real womanizer but they’ve toned it down quite a bit. Cosmo reminds me of my friend Jason Mann here by the way. A solid effort, nice and colorful and it really highlights the enlisted mens’ diverse characteristics.
