‘Cul de Sac’ creator Richard Thompson faces life’s cruel twists with artful wit

[Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill] Watterson contributed an oil painting — his first public art in 16 years. It’s a soulful portrait of Petey, looking cartoon  goofy yet hauntingly real. (“I was reluctant to goof around with  Richard’s creation, so I had trouble thinking of an approach that  interested me until I got the idea of painting a portrait,” Watterson  says. “I thought it might be funny to paint Petey ‘seriously,’ as  if this were the actual boy Richard hired as a model for his  character.”)

How come we play war and not peace?

A great Calvin and Hobbes strip, or the greatest Calvin and Hobbes strip?

Tom Gammill, creator of The Doozies and winner of seven golden Doozie, and Cathy creator Cathy Guisewite embark on a visit to the Ernie Bushmiller Museum.

That there is no such thing as the Ernie Bushmiller Museum is what’s wrong with America today.

Okay. I love Christmas. I do.

But I HATE it when stores start decorating a week BEFORE Thanksgiving. 

Specifically Wal-Mart.

 THIS

I mean really! Christmas decorations on Halloween! “Feliz Navidad” when it’s 80 degrees outside! We might as well take out our Easter Eggs now and send out younglings to go fetch that shit! HOW FAR WILL IT GO UNTIL WE SAY “WHAT DID WE DO? LOOK AT OUR WORLD.” WHEN WILL THIS INJUSTICE STOP?

Interesting fact! Retailers have been putting out Christmas merchandise and decorations in October for more than fifty years. See, for example, this Peanuts comic strip published on October 23, 1959. You may as well be complaining about the sun rising in the east.

Chainsawsuit by Kris Straub, Nov. 23, 2011.

i see a kate beaton comic strip with 30,000 notes under it, but there’s no sourcing of who drew it. in many cases i know that image had a url or copyright built right in and it’s been carefully removed, almost as if it’s crude or inappropriate to lay claim to your own work or tell people where to find more if they liked it

I think Tumblr sort of encourages the idea it’s OK to reproduce something without attribution with its reblog system. If, say, westwingwolf makes an amazing Community graphic and annie-wyatt reblogs it and can-it-boobs reblogs that reblog, it shows up on my dashboard in big bold letters that Mary reblogged Carolina, not Mindy. Mindy’s does appear at the bottom of the reblogged post, but in tiny type that you can’t even tell is a link unless you happen to mouse over it. And if the person who was reblogged happens to have a private account, you may not see the name of the content creator at all.

I won’t pretend I’m perfect in this regard. I just posted a photo from a Patch site, and while I linked to the original article, I didn’t think to credit the photographer, or the author whose work I quoted. (I’ll remedy that after I post this.) But I do try to reblog from the original post rather from another reblog (but I don’t always do that either) and if I reblog a comic that was originally posted without attribution I’ll add it if I know who did it.

Not necessarily AWESOME, but not an altogether awful idea for a “real-life Batman” sort of scenario.
