this is one of my favorite comic strips of all time and until last night i hadn’t seen it since i was a teenager (long time). about ten years ago i started thinking about it a lot, and a few years ago when i started this blog i was still thinking about it often, hence the namesake.
i’ve been looking for it. i bought a lot of old, fairly expensive (for me) comics trying to find it. i put out periodic queries here on tumblr. at some point i began to suspect (fearfully) that the strip was a product of my memory and imagination…BUT, last night it was hand delivered to me at work, raggedy and beer stained (i wouldn’t have it any other way, if it was up to me), through no power of my own, totally coincidental.
pretty cool, right?
dunno why the memory of a toss-off like this has meant so much to me over the years, but it has, and i still love it.
