July 14, 1993
We’re stilll in 1993, during our “The Summer of 35” retrospective. This year was the last full year before digital archiving, and while the characters looked different, the nature of “Arlo & Janis” had become well established in the eight years since its inception. In fact, I chose these two examples from the summer of ’93, because they’re both harbingers of the strip’s Great Themes. I told you’d I select something that had never appeared in print since its original publication, and that is true of the above. However, I can’t swear that they’ve never appeared here, on the Web site. I just don’t know. However, I’m taking advantage of a loophole. They have not appeared in print since 1993. We’ll get to some of the really old stuff before we’re done.
