This follows nicely on Saturday's strip, which is pretty impressive as I drew the Sunday a month or so ago but only did the Saturday a few weeks back. And that's the only thing that's impressive about it really; the Sunday strip has a few good moments but it needs a stronger finish. Mr. Otterloop just didn't come through with a sharp enough zinger. But Petey's dense wad of foil makes me happy.
So here's an Almanack from 2006. Some of the jokes are outdated, but it's got a decent Christmas sweater gag and I like the Alastair Sim/Peter Billingsley mashup.
The trouble wasn't Mr. Otterloop's line, it was his delivery that was off. I think he may have been a bit late picking up his cues.
The Alastair Sim portrait is genius
YAA, cut him some slack, it's the holidays; everyone's nerves are frazzled at this point. Moon Mullins and Andy Gump wouldn't stand a CHANCE against the elder Otterloop in a riffoff!
(and anyway he pays the bills in the house)
For the record, this Cul de Sac was the funniest in our Sunday funnies that day. :) My whole family loved it.
As a side note, my word verification jumble says "turdnoun". Because why not?
