The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is “Fear Not”

In my family, it’s pretty much a given that when Mom frets, Dad says “fear not”. Over the years, this expression has morphed from biblical injunction to dreaded jinx.

Satirical Stargazers

Satirical StargazersOnce, my sister complained that two of my characters changed sides on a table with no explanation. So here: Becky is gradually changing places with Whiskers from the first to the 3rd frame. More frames and I could change her back again. Now if I could just get the speech bubbles in the right order, I could go out for syndication. (By the way, those trucks disappeared at least 10 years ago now.)

Couldn’t Stay Off the Birdwire

Last year about this time I was trying to read a dry old tome about writing and drawing comic strips, which I soon ditched for Scott McLeod’s much flashier Making Comics.
