Jump Start debuts

First, our daily inventory of silent penultimate panels from the L.A. Times:
Jump Start by Robb Armstrong
9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney (the master of the silent-double)
Sally Forth by Francesco Marciulano
Mutts by Patrick McDonnell

And, thanks again to CM, from elsewhere:
Big Top by Rob Harrel

The L.A. Times has indeed replaced Boondocks during its hiatus. And they have done so with yet another wacky single panel comic. It's called The Flying McCoys by Gary and Glenn McCoy. It's always hard to get to use to a new comic. The daily comics become such a part of your routine that any change is viewed with cautious suspicion. It's like having a new temp at the office sit at the table with you in the breakroom. Is he someone interesting who might be good for new conversation, or is he some nut-job who will talk about nothing but his twenty pet turtles and the vaguely disturbing things he does with them? I just don't know what to make of you, Flying McCoys.
