this might as well be the generic sunday comics thread, so ... was snuffy smith just a southern comic? i always wondered if it was confined to the bible belt.



always loved these solely because my grandfather would cut them out for me every sunday. he loved this and the far side. go figure.

well, probably didn't love, but pretended to because 5 year old me loved them.

haha, those are great.

apparently i'm overly defensive about comic strips i like.

never bothered to look up the history of that series, but it's been through some bizarre turns ... before snuffy smith, it was billy google & spark plug:

Is Sparkplug a robo-dog made out of a water heater?

any other sports nerds read in the bleachers in the sports section?



when i was in middle school and throughout some of high school, my local paper always had them underneath the box scores. it's been years since i've seen them. their brief wikipedia page reveals that,

Quote:
In The Bleachers is a comic that comments on, and lampoons, sports. It was created in 1985 by cartoonist Steve Moore and is syndicated internationally by Universal Press Syndicate.


The single-panel cartoon appears in about 200 newspapers worldwide. Moore got the idea for "In the Bleachers" while working as sports editor at the Maui News. The comic was launched in 1985 shortly after Moore was hired as an editor at the Los Angeles Times. "In the Bleachers" has been published in six book collections, including "The Best of In the Bleachers" by Warner Books.


In 2006, Sony Pictures Animation released the CG animated feature film Open Season based on "In the Bleachers" hunting-related cartoons. Moore was Executive Producer along with partner and producer John Carls. The movie - starring Ashton Kutcher, Martin Lawrence, Debra Messing, Gary Sinese, Billy Connolly and Jon Favreau - grossed nearly $200 million worldwide. There has been a sequel "Open Season II" and a third is planned.


In 2003, Moore and Carls produced with Walt Disney Television Animation 26 animated "In the Bleachers" shorts, which aired on ESPN.
... i was unaware of this. all of it. the movie scored a 47% on rotten tomatoes, so maybe it's a good thing that i was unaware of its existence.

bizarro is 50% amazing and 50% beyond terrible.

that dude is strangely inconsistent.

No, but I used to wish Tank McNamara was in my local paper.

in blondie, balloons = trouble and sadness

in archie, balloons = hope and joy

that was an excerpt from Brody's Guide to the Meaning of Balloons in Comics, available at your local bookstore
