Shapes and Colors at Amazon


There'll be a delay in posting Today's Cul de Sac. To make up for it here's a distraction- I've just noticed that Shapes & Colors, the third in the regular, non-golden-treasury Cul de Sac books, is up at Amazon. And it's got the Look Inside feature, so you can preview a few random pages. Including the foreword by  Petey Otterloop, who thinks the strip is Okay, but he's seen better.

Sure, there's early 60s Peanuts, and Calvin and Hobbes. Stiff competition.... But if that's the class of the competition, that's class, Mr. Thompson.

A Foreward by Petey? Oh. My. God.

But Richard, if you start writing the strip with pleasing Petey as your goal, you're going to be playing to an audience of one.

The only real strip I can think of that comes close to Petey's ideal would be David Lynch's "The Angriest Dog in the World."

This is going to make the perfect Christmas gift to myself!

Oh I just re-read the post-Christmas sad tree commentary by Petey that starts to make Dill cry. It made ME cry, but from laughter. Buh buh woo.
