Part Two: Mutts, May 27, 2014
To celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend, today through Tuesday will be a five-part series of Mutts strips originally published the last week of May, last year.
Part one is from May 26, 2014.
Bizarro for September 23, 2009 features another of the many twistings of the infamous cliché by Dan Piraro over the years.
Strange Brew, June 9, 2010. I keep wondering why that pirate's bird needed therapy.
From Cheezburger, April 7, 2013. I don't think I need to comment.
I don't have a lot of Bill Whitehead's "Free Range" toons in my archive, but they'll make an occasional appearance. Here is the July 16, 2013 panel in which a companion parrot makes it clear what "cracker" really means to him:
Since today is Sunday, we'll see the difference in format from the weekday Speed Bump panels with this one from March 13, 2011:
Bizarro and Strange Brew also use a wider-than-tall format for Sundays. These three are the only ones whose weekday format pretty much mandates a different format on the seventh day.
Another one-shot (at least I think it is) ... from everything I've been able to find online the artist does cartoons and other drawings and the Cleveland humor newspaper The Funny Times published this one of hers from 2007 in their February 2008 issue. In any event, I have not found anything else bird-related from her.
Today's toon is Mutts from July 2, 2011. I have several "sets" of strips that ran as story arcs which I want to include but wonder what is preferable ... run them one at a time over consecutive days (as I did back around post #6) or run them one below the other in a single post (giving you all of them at once but using up my archive stock a little sooner). Your comments are welcomed.
Dan Piraro (Bizarro)'s early take on Twitter, from November 26, 2010, when it was just starting to become so ubiquitous as to be annoying.
