Feb 24th 2008 It’s the thought that counts
Looking at this cartoon, it strikes me anew how much Janis and Gene have changed in appearance over the years. Their faces always are the same, practically. If I can remember to do so, I try to give Gene’s nose less delicate treatment, but otherwise mother and son perpetually mirror one another in some weird symbiosis. They have changed a lot over time, while Arlo’s appearance has changed little since the early formative strips.
