Just when you think it’s a small, weird world, you find out that the world of the comic strip is even smaller and weirder.
Margaret Shulock is the current writer for Apt. 3-G (yep, she’ responsible for all those wacky goings-on…LuAnn in one of the Dakotas, Tommie wanting a man so much it hurts but noiwon’tmarryyou, Cousin Ruby, and most of all, Margo Magee, second only to Mary Worth in possibly initiating the End of the World!).
Well, that’s pretty keen. But Shulock is also one of the “Six Chix” who produce the comic strip known as Six Chix. Also quite keen.
Her blog has just let slip the fact, though, that she’s one of the three people behind the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip! WHAT?!? She’s writes both the oh-so-cosmopolitan Margo AND the oh-so-backwoodsy Snuffy and Maw and Tater and Jethro and Ellie May?!? (I’m not so sure on the names.) The woman is a dynamo!
We could only hope for an in-house crossover! Yeah, that’s the ticket…
For the record, I always kind of liked the wagging tongues in Snuffy Smith. They’re kind of the Ozark equivalent of “applause” signs.
Then again, there can be too much of a good thing:
