We’re almost to the end of some high school nostalgia with DAN MURPHY(www.murphycommadan.com) and myself.
DAN MURPHY: First panel– 3 fingers and a thumb??? Have no idea if that was intentional or what.
DANNO KLONOWSKI: Yeah, the digit count seems to vary now and then in this story, but I won’t hold it against you. But what amazes me is panel 2 and 3. I was sure–SURE!–my joke about an old, outdated, long-since-cancelled “news” show that investigated the tiniest flaw in everything would be a worst throw-away joke of the story. Turns out DATELINE NBC is still around, and even a cursory google search turns up that DATELINE defines itself as: a news program about celebrity, true crime, INVESTIGATE JOURNALISM, and human interest stories. I am so sad for our country right now.
DAN MURPHY: Future Land. Classic.
DANNO KLONOWSKI: That was one of mine!….maybe….I think….maybe not.
DAN MURPHY: Hitler in Six-Gun Annie, possibly related to Hop-Along Phyllis, some character I had that was a cross-dressing cowboy.
DANNO KLONOWSKI: That could be where we got it. I just remember that whole panel–from Six-Gun Adolf to the Manson joke was all you. Sicko.
As you can see up top, there is a new staplegenius.com logo image. It’s was done by DAVID STEINLICHT(www.allsmall.net). He did it at the MN CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS(www.mnbookarts.org) as a print kinda like a wood block, except done with paper! VERY COOL!
David–FYI–will be debuting a limited-run collection of his Friday PIONEER PRESS strips on Friday, August 7th at the BIG FUNNY show (www.cartoonistconspiracy.com/bigfunny). YES! A whole ‘nother great reason to stop by ALTERED ESTHETICS on Friday for the BIG FUNNY show. See you there.
