Superbowl Sunday

I only found two today, very spare for a Sunday:

Bo Nanas by John Kovaleski
Herman (reprint) by Jim Unger

Mallard Fillmore might count, but I just can't tell.

Are those panels sequential? Where do those bespectacled, paper-holding people belong in the Mallard universe? The duck has stumped me.

Yes, the crowd of consternated paper holders in today's Mallard mystified me utterly. Are they the "experts" seen in the act of working out the 2012 coiniciding of V Day and the Superbowl? They do seem to be wearing lab coats.

That's my only guess.

Cow and Boy goes for another silent double on Monday. This is getting to be a habit with them.

I would argue that the Bonanas SPP really is a meaningful part of the gag, because it both represents action (the walk-on character leaving the frame) and is part of the final gag.

I know a lot of people avoid B.C. because it can cause loss of brain cells, dizziness, vomiting, etc., but it was interesting on Sunday as it had FOUR silent panels between the "setup" and "punchline". Hart literally stretches his (already unfunny) premise so thin, all of them may as well have been completely blank, which would have saved ink. He could actually have done a more engaging strip about paint drying.

Came across your site via a circuitous and now non-recollectable path the other day and was delighted to discover you are the infamous husband of Sophia (I spend 8+ hours a day, 9 days a fortnight, not 10 feet away from her). I'm the one who's been supplying you both with the Powers trades these past months. Hi, nicetameecha!

My SO and I have spent many an evening discussing comics, and neither of us has a very high opinion of Mallard Fillmore, but he's finally narrowed in on WHY this is so:

(and my interpretation of today's strip was the same as smidge's)
