A Crab Strip

March 19, 1993


The traditional comic strip is comparable to a little play or a little movie. It is a visual medium ideally supported by a plot (albeit simple), action and dialog. However, some of the best “scenes” can be implied. Had to be implied in this case, but would it have been any funnier if I’d actually drawn Janis dancing around sans bikini top? I don’t think so. Yesterday, I said in today’s post I would answer Rob’s question about son Gene and his family on the coast, but that wasn’t entirely accurate. I will address the question soon. It is one I get a lot, and I’m giving it some thought. I don’t have enough time today to do it justice, but I will tackle it soon. Actually, I’m kind of looking forward to it.
