Are Arlo and Janis retired? Technically, no. Although home undeniably has become the focus of the strip lately, they still have comic-strip jobs, traditional jobs where they go to a brick-and-mortar office, put in a day of routine work and collect a regular paycheck. In other words, jobs that hardly exist anymore outside comic strips. Perhaps I’ll explore this area in 2016. I’ve thought a lot about it. Heaven knows, their resume needs updating.
