Technical trouble

Edit 7/28 Here are the pictures:



Blogger seems to be having trouble tonight. And that's a real shame because today, well, to say that today's crop is “veritable bonanza” would be a cliché. But since that is what this blog is all about, we had a veritable bonanza of silent penultimate panels today.

Pickles by Brian Crane
Prickly City by Scott Stantis
Red & Rover by Brian Bassett

Oh, all the great things I had to say for today,--and Blogspot won't let me post images. I'll add the pictures later.

It's a temporary fix, but since blogspot allows most normal HTML tags outside of their special tags, you could use an external pictures service like TinyPIC.

Wednesday's Prickly City was a shining example of everything that's wrong with SPP's and the strip itself:
http://www.gocomics.com/pricklycity/2006/07/26/

After the guy tells her something that either sends a chill down her spine or suggests hell's frozen over- the little conservative black girl who wanders the desert talking to coyotes actually has to stop and contemplate how she feels about this and consider her possible reactions.
This doesn't help the strip, this doesn't add to the joke at all- if anything, it just sucks anything resembling wit and humor from the strip.

Also, when Scott Stantis isn't drawing SPPs in Prickly City, he's drawing SPPs in The Buckets.

Actually, Scott quit drawing "Buckets" in 2000 and quit writing it in 2004 when "Prickly City" began.

So yeah...Greg Cravens does everything, but due to contract reasons, Scott still recieves joint credit.

Thought I let you know.

That must explain why the strips have 2 different syndicates...

Scott is involved in three syndicates, as far as I know:

United Features ("Buckets" and his short lived "Sydney")
Universal Press ("Prickly City")
Copley News Service (his editorial cartoons)
