Great trepidation

Testing the crosspost with the new blog header (Dru! from Pibgorn).

Last time I did this it posted over 1K times to the Hackenblog. Does it again, no more crossposting from here, alas.

In which case you will never see this again:

He’s not worth it

Okay, very quickly, Esme (long hair, sexy dress) the cruise ship singer has been vamping Katie’s husband Derek. Katie is the other soaked woman. As you might have already surmised, they got into a cat fight a few panels ago and Esme fell overboard. Clinging for her life to the rail, Katie took a beat, and then pulled her back in. Esme is doing the only decent thing in promising to veer off Derek, but I think they’ve both realized in this almost fatal encounter of physical death for Esme and spiritual death for Katie that freaking Derek isn’t worth it.

Ah, comics; I love ’em.

Yes, I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here, but it’s been a busy year so far and not letting up any time soon. But there was no way I could let the better than expected ending to kind of a dull storyline go without some kind of tribute. Oh yeah, Mary and Toby are on the same ship somewhere. Probably sleeping and missing the crisis like the sensible women they are. How very boring of them. I’m sure Mary will be bummed she missed a primo chance to meddle in… something.

Happy (as possible) New Year

Even Jumpstart is starting…

jumpstart20161231nov9

Clickety-click for bigger-de-big

And, as we careen into 2017, Nov 9, 2016 is still with us, as I suspect it will be for quite a while.

Happy New Year everyone, or as happy as possible.

Context for those who don’t read Jumpstart, one of the sweetest comics I read: Ray Ramsey is an ex-con who was a mugger and considered irredeemable by the police characters in the strip. Officer Joe Cobb, the shocked guy in the last panel, was/is one of those police characters. However, over the past year or more of this comic strip, Ray’s life has slowly been turning around, and it’s been a pleasure to watch. So be shocked, Joe; it’s fun! And, yeah, I was shocked on November 9, too, alas.

“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 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.)
