I didn't entirely get the intended construction of the jokes in the Sunday Bizzaro (Sp??) strip yesterday .   ( The strip appars to be not online , as it is a King Features Syndicate strip , who - Gasp !!! - appear to think they're in the comics business to make money , and keep their strips behind a wall . )

  The joke was " variations on ' I Love New York ' "...but was the panhandler's shirt supposed to be saying " I Owe New York " ?"  I Have Zero , New York " ?

  The yokel , in Middle Ages garb...Was his shirt suppost'a mean " I Love York " , as in the English county that New York was indeed named after ??? ( And Prince Charles is now considered the Duke of , if I recall correctly . )

...I saw something today saying that Larry Leiber has retired from the SPIDER-MAN daily strip, with Alex Saviuk taking that on as well.

  (1) - It"s the end of an era! Larry must be the artist who's drawn more Spider-Man that anyone else, don't you think?

  (2) - Perhaps now with the same artist all days, they can get past their tendency to have characters' 

appearances differ on the daily and Sunday!!!!! In the present storyline, Iron Fist's beard has switched back and forth from blond to red...:-@

The coloring on the Sunday Spider-Man strips tends to be accurate. Whoever does the coloring on the daily strips, which are supposed to be printed in B&W, often takes me out of the (slow-moving) story. In a 2014 story the early Iron Man armor was colored all-yellow in the Sunday strips. In the daily strips they tried to color it mostly red. A similar thing happened in a Sub-Mariner story when the Sunday strips had an Atlantean child's skin correctly colored blue. In the daily strips he looked like a regular New Yorker. I'm pretty sure that Iron Fist's blond beard in the Sunday strips is correct.

Possibly the penciller and inker have control of the colors on the Sunday strip. I think King Features just assigns someone to color the daily strips for the outlets that produce color daily strips. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. 

I have recently been following the Terry Beatty-drawn REX MORGAN, M.D.

I've been enjoying it for years. It's a good strip.

...Comic Book Resources ran an article bout the Olivia Jaimes NANCY ~ Including an attempt to meke  a " Generation Rumble "/kewell Gen-Zers Vs. boring BOF boomers thing about reactions to Jaimes.

  I am a little sick of the endless " Oooh, it's so KEWELL/modern!!!!!!!!!!! " hyping of Jaimes...Perhaps I am being " reverse-trendy "! Jaimes can be very funny...her art is  rather repititious and her grim-faced Nancy makes me remember my mother in the 70s complaining " I hate Nancy. Sh'e always scowling! "!!!!!!!


Are they giving the Nancy strip to newspapers for free? I have never thought it was worth my time and can't believe it has survived all these years. 

Nancy is wonderfully bland. That's part of its charm. I remember several MAD magazine spoofs of it that center on that very point.

Vulture.com profiles Olivia Jaimes: "The Pseudonymous New Cartoonist Giving ‘Nancy’ a Millennial-Approv...

Vulture writes:

Central to the growing interest in Jaimes’s nascent career as the new cartoonist behind the long-running newspaper comic strip “Nancy” is her commitment to personal mystery. To start with, “Olivia Jaimes” is a pseudonym. The public knows nothing about her life or background. On the rare occasions when she gives interviews, they’re almost always via email; otherwise, as in the case of one radio appearance and one brief YouTube interview, she has demanded that her voice be distorted. If you do manage to arrange a phone chat, the device she’s calling from obscures her number. She even refuses to answer questions about her pseudonymity.

Luckily, though, her savvily modern and surprisingly funny take on “Nancy” speaks for itself. Almost immediately after she took over the strip in April — becoming the first woman to helm it in its 80-year history — her work became a sensation among comics fans. As the geek-culture website the Beat accurately put it in a headline: “This New Nancy Strip Is Lit — and It’s Got People on the Internet Going Crazy.” The fact that nobody knew who was making it only made it more of an object of fascination.

...The SPIDER-MAN newspaper strip has launced a story involving Luke Cage - visually, the modern version. I was meaning to put this up before I heard of Stan's death. The last story, involving Iron Fist, Golden (Yellow) Claw, and the Kingpin, ran...six months!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I haven't even thought about Stan Lee's role in the Amazing Spider-Man newspaper strip. I'm sure they have several weeks in the can, but then what?

I know his name is on it, but was he really writing it? The Wiki page for Alex Saviuk says that Saviuk draws the Sunday strip (inked by Joe Sinnott) and inks the daily strip over Larry Lieber’s pencils. I have a feeling that Larry is doing the writing (plotting and scripting).
