October 19, 1985
I’ve got a really old one for you today, a strip that appeared less than first three month’s after Arlo & Janis began its run. This strip was something of a stretch artistically at the time; full figures in outdoor action were not that common in the early days. Also, it helped establish a guiding philosophy that would become well-worn in the next three decades: if you can’t be funny, be subtle. I’m not going to tell you to vote today, if you haven’t already. I figure there are enough reminders of that. I certainly am not going to tell you whom to support, not because I don’t care, but because you’re going to support your chosen candidate regardless of what I say. So, for these last few remaining hours, we’ll just sort of pretend it’s an ordinary day.
