Today's Cul de Sac, January 10 2012
Each time I redrew it the dialog and the gag changed, Originally Alice is disgusted by the squalor and says Get me outta here! But there's nothing funny about that and it makes no sense; Alice is a slob with no natural objections to Dill's back yard. She'd more likely go home and try to do the same thing to her back yard. And, as someone who has a messy back yard, I've got no business acting all superior back-yard-wise. So out of great struggle and profound deliberation comes this Cul de Sac for January 10, 2012.

Love the atomic energy warning sign on the shed door.
Did I ever tell you that I love CDS?
terrific drawing of the boat i read that comic to my mum and she just couldnt get it she got really ennoyed that you cant see a box behind a box next to a bee hive that had an accident i found it hillereous. but if u get an angry letter in a month complaining about clarity now you know . i guess it just shows cds isnt for all people
Carl, your mom's right- I should've made it clearer. Next time for sure. But I''m glad you like it.
A felt tip or technical pen just doesn't have the same amount of energy as a nib. I think the drawing in the middle panel came out great.
