This Bodes Well

Get Fuzzy is one of my favorite cartoon strips. The art style is reminiscent of R. Crumb and the writing is funny and inspired on a consistent basis. Having been a Siamese owner and an owner of a dim bulb dog, Satchel and Bucky are the avatars of what cat and dog persons would be like.

So, when today's email cartoon arrived, this is what I received.

As you can see, the strip is about to take a very serious arc for the next several days or weeks. I applaud Darby Conley's bravery and artistic vision in bringing serious subject matter into the comics world view. I am anxious to see how he treats this subject of war in Iraq.
