Thursday is the new Sunday – Tag! You’re it!


A lot of times when writing the strip I would create some complex scenario (crazy invention, situation, personal philosophy, etc.) just to make fun of it. The world-wide, decades-long game of tag in the Sunday strip rerunning today on is actually a pretty cool idea. I don’t make fun of it…well, maybe a little. I made the player an earthy-crunchy, white-guy-with-dreads – just the kind of person who’d try to make the world a better place through a playground game.

Wow. That came out much more cynical than I meant it. Really, folks, the gag is all about the stuck-up lady with the glasses.

The drop panel above reminds me of the “big appendages of God” that would show up on Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
