A big day for the comic strips



Many silent penultimate panels today in the LA Times. Let's count them up:

Prickly City by Scott Santis
Candorville by Darrin Bell
Baby Blues by Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman
Zits by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman (Scott scores a double today.)
Drabble by Kevin Fagan
and 9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney

The six today tie yesterday's record.

And a bonus here, The Meaning of Lila uses a silent second panel:


At least it's a different rhythm.

You know, when you line up those silent panels taken out of context from different strips, they start to relate to one another in a weird way. Or maybe I just can't resist relating them to one another. It looks like pop art.

The first three strips wouldn't have been nearly as good without the SPP. Prickly City wasn't good with or without it.
