It's already November and we've yet to meet a single student other than the perennial Sophmores Cody and Owen. Oh, wait! One of these faceless slumping shadows has been given a name!
Castle. Are we supposed to care about this guy? Are we going to find out he's a regular at the Comix Corner and the love child of Lisa and DSH or are we never going to see him again!?
Tombat's ability to uncannily dredge up natural disasters and acts of terrorism just as they're happening in real life is in full force in today's strip! With the official US death toll of Hurricane Sandy rapidly approaching 100, today's little romp seems poorly timed. Most casual readers don't know Batiuk writes these strips a year in advance; the whole thing just comes across as rather tasteless instead of the usual unfunny.
Private Winkerbean! Other than maybe Private Dancer or Private Parts it'd be harder to think of a worse last name to have if you're about to go to boot camp. Ma and Pa Pizza are somehow able to muster up some half hearted musings as their son goes off to start a life in the military.
Given Wally's track record in the military I'd be a little nervous too, Funky. Hopefully he isn't aiming to beat Wally's decade long POW record.
Well well! Another opportunity to catch up with Westview's own Dennis the Menace, Cory Winkerbean. Following in the footsteps of his uncle-cousin Wally, Cory appears to be headed off to start a life in the military.
Military snarkers– first off, I salute you. Secondly, is this how it all goes down? The mood is pretty grim; like they're about to send him to a firing squad. Is this how it goes down? I was always under the impression recruits went to a bus station or flew to wherever their basic training was.
Note to Backache– this is not the best time to draw Cory as a 12-year old kid again.
If today's snark doesn't seem nearly as amusing as usual that's 'cause it's your Guest host DavidO taking the reins from TFHackett to give him a much needed break.
The not-quite-PC named postal worker Crazy Harry is up for closer examination in today's chucklefest! Today's Sunday strip at least has something of a punchline. Clearly the stress of dealing with the post office is about to send him "postal." The job must be stressful indeed, because despite having graduated with Funky and Co, he looks at least ten years older than them.
In the last panel, Donna appears to be contemplating smothering her ol' man with a pillow, as seen in the Lifetime Original Movie: My Husband Won't Stop Sleeptalking."
Sorry about the glitch with yesterday's post. Just returned from a mini vacation to Atlantic City and had no access to internets. Just going to throw up a link to today's thrilling installment (I've taken the liberty of rotating the image so you don't have to turn your computer sideways to view it) and will let you all have at it! Apologies again, and have a nice day.
"*Sung to the tune of Jabob's Ladder," huh? The one by Huey Lewis and the News (and written by Bruce Hornsby)? The one by Rush? Chumbawamba? How about Dreadlock Pussy? Oh…the old spiritual. Thanks for clearing that up. The "by and by, Lord" had me thinking they were singing to the tune of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?"
