Boondocks


Four today, Tuesday:

Pickles by Brian Crane
Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller
Peanuts (1959 reprint) by Charles Schulz
Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis

For some reason, the Pearls Before Swine that appeared in my newspaper from the one online at comics.com.

Comics.com:


Los Angeles Times:


But they both had SPPs!

So, surprise, surprise, Aaron Macgruder and his Boondocks will not be returning anytime soon. If you were around during the early days of this blog, before the Boondocks "hiatus," you know that I'm not a particularly huge fan. The last couple years especially were nothing but cheap and/or boring gags with political arguments not much more sophisticated that that of its right-wing counter-part, Mallard Fillmore. (Okay, maybe that's a bit too harsh.) But I won't be sad if Macgruder and his fleet of assistants never return to the daily comics page, no matter how much fodder for this blog they may have provided.

The one that ran on comics.com is a rerun.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that one was replaced because of recent news reports where 3 kids were drowned in a washing machine by the murderer of their mother...
