The Essential 10

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2015

In Autumn of 2015, I asked you to send me your lists of specific comics that are so “essential,” we can assume that most fans of the genre will be familiar with most if not all of them.

Over 60 of you responded, sending me 67 different comics, well over 200 comics in all, most of which got multiple votes. Before I list the top 10 (actually 16 because of a 9-way tie, this is the Close But No Segar list:

Doonebury: “Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!” (which was on my personal list)

Peanuts: “Hold My Hand, Chuck”

Bloom County: “Death Star”

B.C.: “Clams Got Legs!”

James Thurber: “It’s a naïve domestic Burgundy without any breeding, but I think you’ll be amused by its presumption”

Peanuts: “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night” (the original appearance)

And for the statistics-obsessed: Far Side was cited most often, 11 times; James Thurber 8; Calvin and Hobbes 6; The New Yorker (not including James Thurber and Charles Addams) 6; and Charles Addams 5.

And now the winners:

In a 9-way tie for 7th place (top to bottom, Gary Larson’s Far Side, Carl Rose in the New Yorker, James Thurber, Larson again, Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes, BobMankoff in the New Yorker, that Larson guy a couple more times, and Saul Steinberg in the New Yorker):

#4, Charles Schulz:

#3, Walt Kelly:

#2, Peter Steiner:

And finally from Bill Watterson, published 20 years ago today, voted #1 by a wide margin, and probably the greatest comic strip finale ever:

Retroactive Arlo Award

Cidu Bill on Oct 10th 2015

Powers: Doonesbury is currently in reruns, except for Sundays, so we’ve been seeing classics from the 70s and 80s. This week, Honey Huang is nude-modeling for a newly reformist Shanghai art institute. I think the third panel clearly depicts her naked breasts, albeit in Cubist style.

”Breaking the Fourth Wall” Synchronicity

Cidu Bill on Jul 30th 2012

Robert sent these two Sunday strips:

Of course there was also Sunday’s Doonesbury; but Doonesbury’s fourth wall is even flimsier than Sally Forth’s

Trudeau Says ”Say What?”

Cidu Bill on Jul 19th 2010

Quoted on the Doonesbury site (apparently Trudeau didn’t understand it either):

“Coming here today was like coming to Doonesbury. The system has failed my daughter.” - Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael, following her sentencing to 90 days in jail

Sergeant Bitch

Cidu Bill on Jul 9th 2010

Related to our recent discussion about when mainstream comics will begin using the word “ass,” today’s “Sergeant Bitch” Doonesbury strip and an article about same.

Of course, we pretty much determined that Doonesbury gets a pass on certain words and phrases due to the nature of the strip.

Just as an aside: How are they going to handle Joe Biden: The Comic Strip?

Parking Lot

Cidu Bill on Jan 21st 2010

parkinglot.png

Jack Applin (one of several people to send this to me): I get the implication of “You’re in the marines? The army must have rejected you,” but the significance of the parking lot escapes me. Are Dr. Shipley’s marine skills doubled in parking lots, so he can easily kill Leo for this offense?

”Do We Not Pay You Enough?”

Cidu Bill on Aug 18th 2009

db090815.gif

Chris Reaves: Okay, this Doonesbury went over my head. Is the idea that the birthers won’t believe even the actual physical document? That they won’t show up to see it? That displaying it would be giving in to terrorists? That the birth certificate in fact DOES say “Kenya” on it? None are really funny. Furthermore, the language itself seems to imply that it’s the last option (the sentence trailing off where it does suggests the problem is with what they would see) which would be an incredibly uncharacteristic joke for Trudeau.
