Sunday SPPs are a little less dull. The rhythm is different, and, well, they're in color. But here are today's:
Candorville by Darrin Bell
Dilbert by Scott Adams (SPPW debut for Mr. Adams)
Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley
Earlier this week 9 Chickweed Lane was noted for its two panel silent reaction. Today's Herman reprint brings us a three panels of set-up-the-punchline silence! And, as a bonus, there's even a silent first panel.
A while ago I worked with an old Russian woman who thought Herman was the funniest thing in the universe. "I love the Herman," she would say. I never really understood why, but I just read on comics.com that Herman was the first Western comic to be printed in East Germany. So, maybe somehow Herman was seen in the communist world as a shining beacon of freedom, a sample of the glorious wonders of democracy. Herman, ladies and gentlemen, equals hope.
