Morning Quickie: Curse This Strip!
THE MONDAY RUNDOWN:
Morning, Cartoon Nation...
The Further Adventures of Serial Strips Not Named "Judge Parker":
'Riffs doesn't mean to curse the darkness in today's "Spider-Man," but there's definitely something funky about that left-arm anatomy in the final panel. The angle of the forearm, how it meets the bicep -- this looks just off enough that it could be migrated to "Mark Trail."
Okay, sorry, that was not called for. No comic art this side of "Gil Thorp" is so funky that it deserves eternal damnation in Mark's Lost Forest.
FAVE GAG O' THE DAY: The menacing dialogue in the balloon. Then the suddenly not-so-innocuous visual. Today's "Speed Bump" is executed perfectly. Gags like this remind us precisely why Dave Coverly is nominated for the Reuben for cartoonist-of-the-year.
GUILTY GAG O' THE DAY: Chances are, this "peeps" joke has been perpetrated before, but what can I say? Maybe "Mother Goose" caught me in a weak moment, but I laffed. Aloud.
