Today's Cul de Sac from Yesterday, October 17 2010

I might be remembering this wrong, but Lynda Barry (America's National Treasure and, in Ernie Pook's Comeek, the cartoonist who most understands childhood) said something once about the dreamy mood kids get into when sitting at the breakfast table reading the back of a cereal box. Why some forward looking cereal manufacturer hasn't published a great comic artist on their box I'll never know, except that there aren't any forward looking cereal manufacturers.

I've never understood the bit about riding the horse at the beach, either.

Have you noticed, do you remember going into a cereal trance? Like you just look at the side of a box of cereal and every word on it looked like poetry, like "dextrose."' (I heart Lynda J. Barry)

We just saw her last night! She played (the best ever) peekaboo with my son.

There was a cereal in 1988-89, Morning Funnies, which featured King Features characters. The back opened up for more strips. See Mike Lynch.
