“Francis” is adorable

You won’t see many comics recommendations here at CA HQ, but Francis has won my heart:

Francis20160822PopeRatMake with the clicketly-click to embiggen

Yes, God is laughing at you, Pope Rat, and you’re lucky that’s all God is doing to you.

God bless GoComics for running Francis online. In a world full of bitter, creepy, inconsistent, stupid, and just plain bad webcomics, this is a good ‘un.

And on November 8, 2016, don’t forget to vote for the Democrats. They appear to be our only hope at the moment, God help us.

Have we hit bottom with Trump? Or is there worse to come? I wonder.

Oh well, hurry November.

Double dream day

After meeting Clint Eastwood in Carmel, CA…

And a not so good dream (but a great fantasy),

And on the same day, too. Weird.

Who Dat?

Oh, goodness, it’s Dr. Jeff Corey, Mary’s forgotten boyfriend.

Jeff Corey, M.D.

Jeff Corey, M.D.

Well, apparently not forgotten by her, so that’s good. I wonder if they’ll get married one day. He did ask her a few years ago. I haven’t forgotten, even if Mary has.

(How painful this first post after the demise of Apartment 3G is. I suppose I’ll get over it someday.)

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 6 of 6 Finale (of sorts)

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

The Hollow Men, T.S. Eliot

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. Let’s see how horrible it can get. Pretty damn horrible, I would say.

Day 6, last day ever: Oh, for God’s sake. Run it into the ground and leave it to bleed to death, didn’t you Bolle and Shulock? Bolle’s career is over, but anyone who’d hire Margaret Shulock to do anything should remember what she did to Apartment 3G at the end. I know I’ll remember.

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 5 of 6

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 1 more day of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 5: “So smile, Margo, and move on.” Will these be the words our heroine bestows upon us that we might face the future without fear, regret, or despair? If so, then screw you, Margo. Don’t let the screendoor hit you on the ass on your way out. Bitter? Moi?

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 3 of 6

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 3 days of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 3: “Here comes Margo!” God laughs at me and my puny hope that maybe, just maybe, this strip will have a decent ending.

In other strip ending news, Momma (have read) and Lockhorns (dislike) ended today. Thank goodness Comics Curmudgeon is on the job (unlike Shulock and Bolle, alas).
