The Saturday Comics: Mutts Comic Cons 2015

15 Jul

July 15, 2015


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.

    I love the old comics. They’re like a piece of our past. Did you hear where they’re changing the look of Archie comics ? Less cartoon – like, somewhat more realistic.
    & Archie ( adult version ) is going to take a bullet for a friend running for public office – Who is incidentally gay.

    The only old comic I don’t care much about is The Family Circus….. Dull, but saccharine – cute at the same time.

      I’ve seen the new art and I don’t like it, but the old versions will still be available too, so that’s ok.

      The bullet happened a few months ago and the tribute they did to Archie the next month was really very touching.

      Archie Comics is easily the best publisher out there. They take more risks with their characters than anyone else, an they all seem to work. Afterlife with Archie is fantastic.

        I hear there’s even a ” RIVERDALE ” live – action series in the works, but I can’t confirm it. It’d probably be like ” 90210 “, ” One Tree Hill “, etc.
        I’ve got to wonder how Archie comics would handle alcoholism or drug – addiction or teen / young adult pregnancy ?

          I heard that too but I’ve seen zero details.

            I think it would be interesting if they had the equivalent of an 80s – style ” Very Special episode ” of Archie comics. Just sayin’.
