What is this?

It's time to find a new way to develop comic timing in a daily comic strip. It seems more and more comics artists are using a silent second-to-last panel to set up the punchline. I'll be watching the Los Angeles Times daily to report on these abuses. If you find one in your newspaper, please let me know. So, the offenders today, March 8, are:
Prickly City by Scott Stantis
Frazz by Jef Mallet
and Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis

Have a good day.

This is a fun site you've created. Although, I'm not sure why you think using an SPP constitutes an 'abuse' by a cartoonist. Does that mean you think there is a non-abusive way to use an SPP? Or are you really only talking about over-use of SPPs? Or both? I'm a cartoonist (an amateur, as my strip only appears in one paper - and only biweekly at that) and I have used SPPs and feel it's legit, though I do agree it would not be a good idea to over-use SPPs, that's for sure - they can be annoying if over-used. Anyway, thanks for your site, it's a kick!
