Bill Watterson on Krazy Kat:
>As a cartoonist, I read Krazy Kat with awe and wonder. Krazy Kat is such a pure and completely realized personal vision that the strip's inner mechanism is ultimately as unknowable as George Herriman. Nevertheless, I marvel at how this fanciful world could be so forcefully imagined and brought to paper with such immediacy. THIS is how good a comic strip can be.

Anyone interested in newspaper comics as art, I recommend getting your hands on this glorious tome. The era of greatness in newspaper comics started with The Yellow Kid in 1895 and ended with Calvin and Hobbes in 1995. The ‘true classics’ which fell within that span included Krazy Kat, Little Nemo, Gasoline Alley, Pogo; these strips were innovators in use of space and medium. Daily strips that achieved the most with narrative and characterization include Popeye, Wash Tubbs, Little Orphan Annie (my personal favorite) and Gasoline Alley.

I took an English class my senior year of liberal arts college. At that point I already knew I was going to grad school for something unrelated, and didn't give a fuck about English class.

Our first paper in the course was to compare the poems Ode to a Nightingale and Ode on a Grecian Urn. I actually put effort into that paper, and received a D. The grade and comments I received were by far the worst I had ever received on a college paper.

The next assignment was to compare Catcher in the Rye, along with a book called Merit Badges written by Kevin Fenton written by an alumnus of my college. I'd read Catcher in the Rye in high school and didn't feel like reading it again. I had never read Merit Badges, and based on the summary and its general lack of acclaim I wasn't going to read that goddamn book. I pounded out a paper the night before it was due based on an in class discussion of the novels and received a B.

Finally, we had to write a final paper comparing A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Antigone. I didn't read either and cranked out the paper the night before it was due. My grade must have been fine because I received a B+ in the class.

That was one of the shittiest classes I took and was a complete waste of my time. The professor has now retired and writes self-published crap that you can find on Amazon - exactly what any college wants a professor emeritus to be doing.

Literally just using his comics as a soapbox with variations on the exact same joke tacked on at the end because all comics need a joke. Formulaic and unfunny, and I say this as someone who agrees with all the shit he's soapboxing for.

I always find this collection to be really bulky and hard to read, especially as it barely stays open even if you lay it flat on a table to look at.

I use to have his anthology where he explained many of his botched comics, and he said just from the responses he got, this was one of his most confusing comics, and that a lot of people thought it was suppose to be sex toys. In general they were focusing too much on trying to figure out what the tools do, when other than the saw they weren't meant to look like anything particularly. It was just meant to compare them to neanderthals and neanderthal tools. Still not great a great joke, and that one of the tools is clearly meant to look like a saw must lead some readers into assuming the others are also specific tools. Also neanderthals don't have saws so that's a mistake regardless. He did this to reinforce the idea that they are tools but that's made from the caption already.

PLEASE HELP ME. About two years ago i was browsing /lit/ and someone recommended a comic strip that was edgy but funny. It was a recent comic, like 2010s, published online, and I binged all the comics in two days. The only comics I remember are 1) a plane is crashing and the pilot does one of those "This is your captain speaking...." and 2) a series of panels about many anonymous people moving throughout the city, begrudging life, but then going home to have sex.

I feel like the bird's thought bubble was not there in some previous version, and was better that way.

I still like it because it seems to somehow work perfect comedic timing into a one panel comic.
