Ka-boom



The watch has been a little less than vigilant recently, and look what's happened, a fireworks explosion of SPPs: (and how about that clever timely metaphor?)

9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney
For Better or For Worse by Lynn Johnson
Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley
Overboard by Chip Dunham
Pooch Cafe by Paul Gilligan
Prickly City by Scott Stantis

I need to get back on the stick here.

Confidential to commenter Kris:
Uh, yeah, holy crap, that's me. What's up? Somewhere in my box of old VHS tapes, I still have a copy of our performance at Mid-stock '92. Those were the days, man.

Hey, what about the July 3 Monty? That penultimate panel is not just silent, it's silenced.

Today's (14 Dec 07) Doonsbury is also good. And silent.

Maybe someday this blog will return to it's former glory...

silent panels are about dramatic pause. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. to write a blog about this, to even contribute a significant part of your life to this, is a waste of your time. If this is the best way you can spend your time blogging, you have less imagination than the cartoonists you criticize. In the cartoonists' case, it's a wasted cartoon. In your case, it's a much bigger wasted part of your life. I hope you will find more fruitful endeavors with which to devote yourself, that could possibly change this world in a more significant way.

hmm, it looks like this blog is a little dead, although very fun. I thought I'd share this in case anyone was still passing by:

It's a comics scrambler I made using only silent panels from the Sunday comics.
