Three classic SPPs


Three classic, indisputable silent penultimate panels today:

The Duplex by Glenn McCoy
Garfield by Paws, Inc.
Luann by Gregg Evans

Call me slow, but I just realized that the Duplex's Glenn McCoy is the same McCoy that does The Flying McCoys. It seems there are a lot of two-strip creators now. Have comic strips suddenly gotten easier to make?

I didn't count today's Overboard, but I probably could have. It's just not quite the typical SPP. But it isn't that great, any way. Either the third panel could be eliminated or the fourth panel's dialog could go in the third. Chip Dunham is fairly witty, but this strip can be so visually clumsy, he makes Scott Adams look like Winsor McCay.

Glenn McCoy also draws editorial cartoons, which is told through a conservative perspective.

Chip Dunham's wit only goes so far. Isn't it just a poorly drawn strip with the same gag done over and over*? And I seem to remember him using silent panels all over the place which just makes the crummy artwork stand out even more.

*not that he has the copyright on this
