Or the world a pair of good. I, so hate Mallard Filmore for its spastic unimaginative irrelevant knee jerk conservative commentary. It isn’t the conservative Doonesbury by a hundred miles. Prickly city though I feel is a bit more fair and treats its characters as more than cardboard cutouts. Ramirez who cartooned for the LA times would have been a better pick.
Did the artwork in Prickly City recently improve *slightly*? I thought maybe Stantis went off the sauce or something, but it seems just a skosh less scribbly lately. Like instead of the messy scrawl on the girl’s face that’s meant to represent enormous lips, now there’s something more lippy and less scribbly.
Mallard Fillmore is a heap of steaming DS that only gets newspaper space because some editor thinks it “balances” out Doonesbury’s supposed liberal stance.
Prickly City, on the other hand is not conservative but Libertarian. True the artwork can be attrocious, but its not dogmatic and sometimes doesn’t even contain political content. BTW, the current arc bashing the Tea Partiers should remove any doubt that this isn’t a conservative strip.
