Comments Off on Sex on the beach…

Just because the Comics Curmudgeon’s Nehemiah Scudder started it! Well, it started with a very cryptic Love is…, devoid of all those silly things like articles:  Love is… man in apron. (WTF? Are they charging more for one- and two- letter words now?)

I’ll ask permission to see if he lets his masterpieces be displayed here. In the meantime:

love is cat in air

When you’re in love, is it possible NOT to shake your ganderbag?

love is everybody dancing

Speaking of disco, I’m still missing you, Dingo, as if it isn’t obvious:

love is turkey leg

And my personal favorite, suggested by CC’s Liam:

love is man in  boat

Mark Trail didn’t get where he is by being mediocre!

And okay, so Rex is kinda mediocre, but he looks really good when he deals with losers!

A new Mark Trail story? About fishing? With Rusty?  Say it isn’t so!

Mary Worth leaving New York City? And Ken Kensington? Perhaps a moment too soon? Oh, yeah…

New MW

Gunther finally getting his come-uppance? Or is it down-duppance, considering he’s talking with that Aussie Quill? Anything to destroy that hideous sweater!

First, a black bear comes to Mark’s aid…

Not that Sunday strips are necessarily something to write home about…

And I just tossed this in,  because the black brown kinda cinnamony-colored bear is so gosh-darned cute!
