“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”
Pablo Picasso, The Impossible Cool, 3 Jan 2020
“Past, present, and future on view in a wondrous machine. Everything everywhere in every universe. Better than YouTube, but can this device bring happiness to a young slacker looking for love and life’s meaning?”
Drunk on Time, Storylandia, The Wapshott Press Journal of Fiction, Issue 32, Winter 2020

“What?” Mary recoiled in surprise. “Your doctor didn’t recommend stealing the pituitary glands of younger women? Dr. Jeff and I have been doing that for 300 years.”
If youth knew; if age could.
Oh, love will make a dog howl in rhyme.
I buy expensive suits. They just look cheap on me.
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Still fundraising for Wapshott Press titles 2020. It’s a good line-up, so I hope you’ll help us out, if possible. Thanks!
And now… the internets.

And because I’m nice: Mary Worth, December 1, 2019
And this smug bastard is why Iris should get a female doctor. No woman smirks at menopause. It’s like smirking at a charging rhino or something.
Mary Worth writer and art team, pull yourselves together. Menopause is something I hope M Worth knows a lot about.
This has been a Mayerson Service Announcement.
“In the absence of any powerful debunking of his testimony, there may be only two arguments left for Mr Trump’s defenders to marshal against his accusers. The first, which may take the form of any manner of distraction or conspiracy theory, is: Go whistle. Most Republican voters love the president, don’t care about Ukraine, and their elected representatives are not about to disappoint them. This is probably good enough for most House Republicans.”
Gordon Sondland weakens Republican defences against impeachment, by The Economist, Nov 21, 2019
Well, there goes rule of law as we know it. So long Enlightenment, it was swell while it lasted.

For the love of God, who are these guys? Now I have go look something up. My life is already endless internet toil, when all I like about comics is that usually you can instantly understand what’s going on in any Sunday strip. Then, here are these two square-jawed hunks. Y’know, I might not look this up because a) I should know so I must suffer; b) all will be revealed on Monday; c) girls love mystery; and d) meh.
By the way, Mike, if that’s who you are, you could go camping under that 70s necktie you’re wearing.
Full disclosure: I’m not fond of these comics cross-overs the DT team do so often, but if Tom of Finland’s Police Officer Kake ever shows up in Dick Tracy, I will attain a state of such pure unadulterated exalted joy that I’ll hang up my comics mocking spurs forever. However, I wouldn’t hold your breath, folks. (but… Tom was in The Economist recently and I never thought I’d see that…)

Stop looking at me, Mary. All this fourth wall breaking is creeping me out.
Oh, yeah, Estelle hooks up with Wilbur, and then he takes off for 2 months. Typical.
Thank you, GoComics, you know I’m loving this.
Joy of Webcomics. Bless you, Brooke. Any chance of a plot or some storytelling any time in the near future? Just wondering about that.
June 15, 2019 Update: Pretty good punchline here. Maybe Brooke’s getting his groove back or on or something.
Man, I hope someone clues good old Estelle into the seniors’ STD prevention scene sooner than later. And I’m sure it isn’t going to be super bores Mary or Toby.
Is this the first same sex kiss in a syndicated comic? Well done, Brooke, well done indeed.
If not, how’d I miss the first one?
Y’know, I’m as happy as anyone that these two are finally expressing their love, but yow! Do we get diagrams next?
