??3 comic strips in one day! what is wrong with this guy?!??

You may have caught the link in my links section on “PVPOnline”:http://www.pvponline.com. Here’s a shot from the latest series. I disagree with Scott’s basic “assertion”:http://www.pvponline.com/archive.php3?archive=20030801 that dealing with real-life issues in comic strips sucks. I have been “enjoying” the story line running in “Crankshaft”:http://www.kingfeatures.com/features/comics/crank/about.htm and “For Better or For Worse”:http://www.comiczone.com/comics/forbetter/index.html that dealt with alzheimers and homophobia, respectively, but I do agree that “Boondocks”:http://www.ucomics.com/boondocks/ has become just way too cynical. However, Scott has the funniest daily geek comic online today (and ties “Penny-Arcade”:http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php3 for funniest periodic comic online) and his blogs (beneath the daily strip) are a nice insight into the mind/life of the artist and I especially enjoyed his rant series about Wil Wheaton, which I will link to if he ever posts a “reprint”. Buy his books and read his strip!

Favorite real-world thread in a current comic: Apartment 3-G is dealing with the tragedy that is bigamy.

That’s a joke, right?!? (I’m on my hip-top and can’t decipher comic sized graphics squeezed down to 3 inch width.) Or is the joke that you read a soap opera comic and the title doesn’t end in “Trail”?

No, the bigamy thread is for real. I usually scanned over it in the Houston Chronicle until I caught this strip

If you’re still on your palm top, the last panel reads ‘Tim isn’t cheating on his wife… He’s cheating on his two wives!
