More Christmas Sweater





Here's the Big Payoff to yesterday's violent confrontation with the Christmas Sweater. All's well that ends well. Though I probably shouldn't've put the Big Payoff in a Saturday strip, 'cause nobody reads the Saturday paper I'm told.

Originally I had all these gewgaws & baubles hanging off her sweater, but I had trouble making the train show up. And when the strip's reduced to gumwrapper size for the newspapers the more clarity and focus the better. And visual flow and coherence, can't forget those. Plus you gotta do spelling and squeeze a joke in there somehow. This stuff is really hard, man.

Since none of our local papers carry Cul De Sac,(those fools, no wonder they're in such trouble!) I have to read it on line, which I do everyday. Can't wait for the first book collection, so I can see it printed on paper, however small, the way God and Syndicates intended.

And yet it all works. I've got the daily link in my blog, so at 5 other people are reading it!

P.S. And now I introduce you to a glimpse of the dark underbelly of blogging: memes. (Bwaaahahhahahahaaa!!!) It's the chain letter of the blogassfear. Feel very, very free to ignore, but I did tag you. But you might want something to distract you from those durned deadlines.

As a kid, I really loved these reality-bending strips. Everything else was perfectly normal (except perhaps the size of one's feet) and then you had a surrealistic moment like this.
