Obtained a three-fer this week with In The Bleachers by Benz Thursday

“Zonk, because you don’t age…”
Whereas Joanie Caucus has aged visually as she went from being a mother to grandmother within the strip, Zonker Harris doesn’t look a day older than he did when he confirmed up in B.D.’s soccer huddle in September 1971.
“I’d say that Zonker might be the Snoopy of Doonesbury,” Trudeau says. “I don’t draw him any otherwise, haven’t given him any grey hair. I permit him to be form of without end younger, though he has grow to be slightly bit extra accountable now that he’s working a enterprise.”
Why? Why? Why?
Why hasn’t GoComics, which runs all of Creators Syndicate‘s first run comedian strips,
added Andy Marlette‘s new Shrimp & Grits to their lineup?
(Arcamax carries the Creators strips that GoComics doesn’t.)
Bruce Tinsley returns to Mallard Fillmore for the primary time since June,

Strip Scene, of the late ’70s and early ’80s, was maybe the most effective sketch fanzine ever;
edited by Carl Horak it boasted an A-list of comics historians as contributors.
