I guess it’s a bit of self-promotion, but it’s kind of sad you couldn’t find a better example for panel 3.
It’s almost a punchline by itself.
Pretty said self-promotion. He didn’t even name the guy!

Blondie’s lover looks like a young, bald Samuel L. Jackson. Or am I just projecting?
Aw, Ces, you completely forgot about Marcus Jones from Foxtrot. For shame!
You know, I had no idea what Lt. Flap’s first name was. Given the era he was created in, I guess I should be glad he’s not Roosevelt Washington Flap.
Damn. Not sure I could blame Blondie.
=v= Ces really ought to put a *spoiler alert* on items he gets in advance from King Features. I assume Blondie’s been getting it on while Dagwood was busy uploading photos of food to Facebook.
I could think of a few more from before the 1960s, but there’s no way in holy hell you’d be able to show your face in polite company again after drawing one of them.
you forgot Lawrence Poirier, black AND gay! a minority two-fer!
You mean the guy that Johnston decided to make gay after she realised that she wasn’t fit him into the strip any more, since she couldn’t think of anything else to do with him? Yeah, great, thanks.
