Every year at San Diego Comic Con time, Patrick McDonnell turns over a week of his brilliant Mutts strip to loving tributes to the comics. Usually he features all superheroes, but this year he’s mixed it up with classic comic strips, including Peanuts. That’s just perfect, as Mutts and Peanuts (along with Calvin and Hobbes) are among the greatest strips ever produced. Unfortunately, Charlie Brown, Dot, Robin, and even Dennis the Menace are being attacked by the Mutts squirrel team of Bip and Bop. anyone unlucky enough to pause below their tree learns very quickly who the boss is.
Want more? Here are links to the previous year’s strips:

Happy Sunday! Ah, summer. Sun, fun, and new blogs! They go together like, um, things that go together. Anyway, here, in no particular order, are the things you can expect from The Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride in the coming days.
(In an unrelated note, the Mr. Blog Editorial Staff is looking for summer interns. Must be willing to blend smoothies without pay.)
An Unfortunate Name
Sorry that I have to censor the name, but that would give it all away. The name of this place in South Jersey sounds like something that could get you on the sex offender registry.
Separated At Birth?
Someone in this towel ad has a celebrity lookalike. HINT: It isn’t the roll of towels.
This Blog Is Going To The Dogs
Man, I am really starting to get worried about Star Wars VII after seeing that picture.
Just kidding, it is the return of a yearly Saturday Comics feature. Hmm. Comic Con, mutts, what could this be? Am I being too subtle?
I Made It To The Top
That’s the shadow of the Cape May lighthouse, and I’ll share some photos and video from way up there. Hey! I can see my car from here! It’s the black one.
