Random Thoughts

The idea for this week's cartoon struck me when I saw the latest evidence of Big Oil's greed at the gas pumps. I'm still steamed. Still, a game where keeping your car going is just as important as getting to your destination seems like a good idea, right?

My son bought Guitar Hero II for the XBox360. I've not yet had the opportunity to try my hands at it, but I can easily see why this game is so popular. This is "air guitar" taken to the next level. What's amusing is that the song selection is made by folks my age rather than my son's age. So most of the songs are new to him, but actually were classics before he was born. Still, for those of you who were born to rock, this game is for you.

I felt obligated to note the passing of BC creator and cartoonist Johnny Hart who died over the weekend. I read this in an article on his passing:

Newcombe said "B.C." and "Wizard of Id" would continue. Family members have been helping produce the strips for years, and they have an extensive computer archive of Hart's drawings to work with, he said.

Could someone tell me what that means? Are they going to just cut and paste panels from old comics to make new ones? Is this the future of the funny pages?

Labels: , , ,

Nice toon! I love how you do your backgrounds BTW – that one continuous curved swoop in different colors across the panels.

As far as the future of Hart's stuff, that's what it sounds like. Assembling new stuff via Photoshop.

Ugh... So sad... Will someone PLEASE just let a strip die?!
Mark, I wouldn't mind it so much if they would at least get a new cartoonist to take over the product (it's not like it hasn't happened before). This just reeks of so much executive corner cutting for the bigger buck that it just makes me sick.
