Saturday, November 3

Return to flashback land, and despite the fact that LIZ is telling the story, this strip is all about Mike.

I guess this is the example of Mike being dramatic that Liz talked about yesterday.  

This is a normal kind of rivalry is within the normal bounds of sibling relations, and Elly reassures Mike he is loved.  Can't really fault that. 

So instead, I will direct everyone's attention to panel four.

This style of head back mouth wide open reminds me of another cartoonist, but I can't put my finger on it.

Oh!  Did you know that apparently Lynn was GOOD FRIENDS with Charles Schulz?

Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble.
