Last Time on “Sally Forth”

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on January 28, 2019

This may be the first time I’ve used such a narrative conceit—which I now see should read “Previously on Sally Forth”—all because of yesterday’s new story-arc introduction and the fact that not every newspaper that runs the daily strips prints the Sunday ones as well. (And while one could read the missed strips online, that’s neither everyone’s habit nor fair to expect people to do so.)

But tune in when we start to use other such old-time TV show tropes as “On the next,” “To be continued,” “On a very special,” “The role of _____ will now be played by _____” and a test pattern for whenever I get writer’s block.

    “The role of Ted Forth will now be played by a 6-foot-2 hunchback from Norway named ‘Otto.'”

    “In a very special strip of ‘Sally Forth,’ Sally partners with the FBI when she accidentally discovers her employer’s connection with an international smuggling syndicate.”

    That’s a lot of hunch, Maradonto. As much as I like your ideas, I’d rather continue seeing Sally and her coterie wander the surrealistic landscape than become the next Mary Worth.

    Steer clear of “Stay ‘Tooned!” Mrk Tatulli has that one sewn up in Heart of the City.
