READ Prince ValiantGAZE with the greatest admiration at the panels — beautifully drawn, beautifully colored, the last bastion of classic newspaper comic art.

Okay, snicker like an adolescent at this…

(Actually, can we cancel Funky Winkerbean?)

New FW

I suppose not. OTOH, may we’re just cancelling characters, one at a time.  We can only hope.

New FW 2

And let’s wrap up October (at least in Westview) with an all-too-easy one…

Apparently Mary Worth will be re-introducing a character from several years ago (before I started reading The Comics Curmudgeon and pursuing my life of mashing).  Irene’s son was incarcerated for making meth and dreaming of becoming the lead in Breaking Badhey! A slacker can dream, can’t he?

Whatever the premise, it seems comic hijinx will ensue!  Be there!

New MW

Well, maybe not “comic” hijinx, but perhaps Action Aplenty!
