Funny drawing

The slow pace continues. Only two this Sunday:

Monty by Jim Medick
Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley

If the essense of comic strips is funny drawing, as Charles Schulz always said, then today's Get Fuzzy panel is a pefect example. The popular criticism of Get Fuzzy is that the parts tend to be funnier than the whole. Conley's set-ups are almost always funnier than his punchlines. But the man can draw, and he can draw funny.

And that sort of talent is a little too rare on the comics page.

If you mean 'funny ha-ha' rather than 'funny hmm' I don't see it.
