Why would anybody want to read a comic about a snail?


That was what King Features asked when I sent Snibbler to them over a decade ago. Personally, I’m tired of cats and dogs. I just posted all 24 of the series, in case anybody actually is interested in reading a comic about a snail. Now most recent cartoons of mine are online.

Santa brought me a new 40-year retrospective of Doonesbury. Its weight is such that I will build up my biceps while reading it. It fits in no bookshelf in the known universe. That is because the strips are reproduced at a size that does them justice, and there are 1,800 of them. [Insert long rant about the incredible shrinking comic strip here.] 

New Year’s puts me in a retrospective mood — hence my comic data mining.
