Sunday Funnies

Get back under them covers with a cup o' hot joe! It's time for 4 color Sunday Funnies!

Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" from November 29, 1953. The gals o' Dogpatch vs. "The Wrecker"! No husband kin be trusted!!

Cliff Sterrett's "Polly and Her Pals" from January 17, 1926. Pa and hard cider, Pa and hard cider.

George Herriman's "Krazy Kat" from June 15, 1935. Offica Pup's "cents of yuma" is put to the test.

Milton Caniff's "Terry and the Pirates" from December 23, 1934. Pat Ryan and Terry take a dive!

And this is what it was like when the comics pages were filled by people who could write and draw. Jim Davis will smoke a turd in Hell for every installment of "Garfield" he inflicted upon us.

Talk to you soon.

A lot can be learned from Herriman. A lyrical narrative, deceptively non-sensical, over simple personal relationships that everyone understands. And far too important and artful to analyze.
