WHAT I’M THINKING ABOUT TODAY…

July 8th, 2014

Humans are complicated and ultimately individually unique. Each of us is a singular serious of adjectives that begins with Human and ends with me. As a wise woman once told me, Once you’ve met a person who is x then you know one person who is x. All of our personal Venn diagrams look like […]

TRUE STORIES, NO. 1, COMING IN SEPTEMBER…

July 4th, 2014

[O]ne week a month was always reserved for a True Story. It was a dose of realism that gave The City its pedigree. No matter how much the strip changed over nearly a quarter century, even after I dropped almost all my original characters and morphed a silly Gen X humor strip into a savage […]

THE HYPOCRISY OF THE SUPREME COURT…

July 3rd, 2014

Since we’re talking about fences… On 13 June 2013, the Supreme Court Of The United States created a no-protesters buffer zone in front of their court. Seems to me, and to Jen Sorensen, that what is good for the goose is good for the gander and protesters should quickly fill the previously off-limits plaza with […]

I have discovered that Brain Pickings is the worst rabbit hole I have ever found on the intertubes, far worse than YouTube or Facebook or Twitter, and for that reason wonderful.

A TRULY MAGICAL MOMENT IN TIME…

June 9th, 2014

[Bill] Watterson told the Washington Post that he’d first had the idea of appearing in the Pearls Before Swine strip “several years ago, when Stephan did one of his strips that mocked his own drawing ability and mentioned my strip in comparison”. “I thought it might be funny for me to ghost ‘Pearls’ sometime, just […]

CAROL WAS HONORED, I’M SURE…

May 27th, 2014

The City is now in just 10 weeklies. Most of its readership comes from the GoComics site. It is no longer fun to crank out the strip every week. In fact, it’s an ordeal. Frankly, I’ve run out of things to say. I’m also having great difficulty writing in the strip format. The open-ended freedom […]

GOODBYE TO DERF’S THE CITY

May 21st, 2014

Last Thursday, Derf wrote: I’m ending my comic strip, The City, after 24 years. Here’s the final strip. I’m ending the strip So I can concentrate full-time on graphic novels. It’s all good. I’m not slinking away from a failed endeavor as a washed-up has-been. I’m leaving it behind in a blaze of glory, as […]

H.R. GIGER: 1940-2014…

May 13th, 2014

Only two movies have scared the holy shit out of me and given me nightmares: William Friedkin’s The Exorcist and Ridley Scott’s Alien. Giger created the most horrible monster that anyone has ever imagined. When I get home I’ll put on some Brain Salad Surgery…
