Feb 15th 2016 Ever the Gentleman
Since I didn’t post on Sunday, I’m showing you this old A&J classic from Valentine’s Day, 2007. While we’re at it, I might as well wish you a Happy George Washington’s Birthday, aka Presidents Day. Where I come from, George Washington’s Birthday always meant “white sales,” when the woman of the house (Naturally!) could get good deals on sheets and towels. Why this was the case, I have no idea. But let’s talk about cartoons.
As some of you are aware, there are a lot of comics on the gocomics.com Web site, where you find today’s Arlo & Janis online. Many of these comics are Web-exclusive; they do not appear in newspapers. The consensus is, these efforts are a transitional frontier, their creators trail-blazers for aspiring cartoonists of the future. To be honest, my knowledge of this frontier hardly is exhaustive and probably not better than that of many of you reading this. However, I did want to mention three that I like. I think they’re charming. When you have a chance, check out “The Sunshine State” by Graham Nolan, “Connie to the Wonnie” by Connie Sun, and last but not least “Wallace the Brave” by Will Henry. Let me know what you think. Do you have any favorites?
