From this date in 2009. No wonder Janis thinks she’s gained weight. She has! However, I’m not wading into that quagmire. As you probably have guessed by now, it’s been a busy week around here, and it’s Friday already. I suppose this is as good a time as any for a commercial. If you go to CoComics to read Arlo & Janis by clicking on the blue logo below, or by any other means, I hope you will consider clicking the “follow” button on the upper left portion of the A&J page. You will be asked to sign up for a GoComics account, but that is easy and need not cost anything. This will enable a reader to “follow” as many comics as he or she wants and to assemble them into a custom-made “funny page” of favorite comics. I say “need not cost,” because a premium membership is available that, among other things, enables you to read comics in an ad-free environment. And, yes, we artists are permitted to wet our tiny beaks. Mainly, though, I am encouraging you here simply to “follow” Arlo & Janis. These little things help us cartoonists as we transition, kicking and screaming, from the cozy comfy confines of your local newspaper.
