As demonstrated by this vintage strip from May of 1986, phone humor is nothing new in Arlo & Janis. I had been drawing the strip for less than a year when this appeared. What is unusual about this is, it is a “sight” gag, not a written joke. I did not do a lot of those in the early going, because I was coming from a background of the written word. I had to learn the art of the comic strip as I went along. As mentioned yesterday, I will be showing some really old stuff this week, as part of the 34th anniversary of the premier of A&J. I hope you enjoy it.
