Inspired by David Reddick’s take on Marla, another talented cartoonist drew up his own interpretation! My good buddy, Dan Thompson of Rip Haywire fame just sent me this. Thanks, Dan. This came out fantastic! Love your style!
One of the challenges of having to work so far ahead of your publishing date. I wrote this comic in August, after observing that stores were already stocking Halloween candy. Of course, it loses some impact running in September … when it’s not quite so crazy. As I recall, there’s a Market Basket reference coming up this week too. Ugh. It’s hard to be topical in a newspaper comic.
