I still wish he'd have gone with the cereal characters longer. That was one of the funniest comic premises I've seen in a long time (like since The Far Side).

I agree, there was a lot more comedy to be mined in that plotline.

As DB has told us before, this guy tends to return to previous ideas so I guess there's always hope that that mine will get reopened.

Helpless when confronted by a box of Ding-Dongs?

I can relate.

I'm sure this is the first time you guys have been introduced to Captain Quigley. For years he's been trying to capture Sherman but never quite succeeds and actually lost a leg to our favorite Great White.

Another recurring character, eh?

I like that concept.

I love the current one where Ernest has the "I'm with stupid" t-shirt. Too much effort to read the shirt. Laughing very hard

"I'm a narwhal."



I love how Toomey sometimes injects some intelligent elements into the strip. I bet at least half the people who read it don't even know what a narwhal is or that they exist.

When I was a kid, I was obssessed with dinosaurs and whales. So I sure know what a narwhal is. I like how Hawthorne thinks he's a unicorn.
lol!

Whales are still one of my favorite animals along with birds of prey.

There he goes again; another educational cartoon. Octopi have 3 hearts.

THe more I read this guy's stuff, the more he becomes my favorite cartoonist.



And he even threw "cephalopod" in there!

Toomey is a marine biology buff and likes to raise awareness to matters of the sea.

"You're the doctor"

If you ever say that and then he's surprised at what he finds when he opens you up, you're in trouble.

I love how he imbues his characters with recognizable traits. That is just so like Hawthorne.

"First of course, we'll need to blind some folks."

At least some of Hawthorne's origional personality is still there.

If you think that's funny, in the some of the older strips, there was a period where Fillmore became was a she turtle (he went without a woman for so long it transformed him-even as a female he struck out-but he later changed back).
