Break Out the Crayolas! It's the Official COLOR 'CUL DE SAC' Contest
For many readers, it's become a starkly black-and-white issue: They want to see "CUL DE SAC" in color..
So it's time to take matters into your own hands. Literally.
As most of you know, Richard Thompson's Post-grown comic strip has run in black-and-white instead of color on most Sundays since moving to the Arts&Style section nearly two months ago. So Comic Riffs, with the aid and abetment of Mr. Thompson himself, today announces the first official Cul de Sac Coloring Contest. That's right--it's your turn to color this beloved comic strip how you see fit.
The rules: Color any "Cul de Sac" strip yourself -- be it by crayola or computer -- and send it to Comic Riffs. The contest is open to "kids" of all ages, be you 9 or 99. Comic Riffs encourages youngsters to write their age on their entries.
Mr. Thompson himself has agreed to judge the contest. The deadline for The Post to receive all entries is Dec. 7. Entries may be sent to via e-mail to email@example.com; or via mail to: "Comic Riffs," The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. (Note: The Post is not responsible for any lost or unreceived entries.)
The winning images will be published on Comic Riffs. Meantime, we wonder: Will Petey retain his pumpkin hair? Will Mr. Danders get a whole new look? Color us curious, hopeful and intrigued.
NOTE: You can choose your own black-and-white "Cul de Sac" strips to color, or use one of these samples:
