Sep 27th 2016 Literary Illusion


This is what was going on in A&J 20 years ago this month. My generation didn’t have movies on tape. It had “Classic Comics.” And the internet generation? We needn’t even go there. I don’t know why I don’t show more “young Gene” strips here. When I do, the Gene comics tend to be from one of the story lines that have always seemed to swirl around him. A kid is always a good source of material; think of all the television sitcoms that featured a cute kid who, as the child grew older and less cute, had to be replaced with a new and younger cute kid, via some script writer’s contrivance. I’ll be honest. It’s challenging to write for a cast of only three people. When one of that cast moves on, it becomes truly challenging. At least I’ve got Ludwig!
