Two debuts today!
Crankshaft by Tom Batiuk and Chuck Ayers
Mallard Fillmore by Bruce Tinsley
Mallard Fillmore finally makes the watch. The strip so rarely consists of sequential panels that it has never actually been on the watch before. Welcome, duck.
But where's the story? It's no secret or shame that some employers pay more than others.
Crankshaft is more of an ongoing serial rather than a gag-a-day strip, and these strips rarely appear on the watch. With just four panels a day to move a story along, there's never much time for a dead panel of no action.
