Thursday is the new Sunday – Hey, baby!


The Sunday strip rerunning on today features Baby Karl* (Bo babysits him occasionally). I love the idea of a baby as a character because they have no fear and will do just about anything. (I loved the idea so much that I transfered him into my new graphic novelette Great Scott and called him “Baby Mort.”** And I’m using a not-dissimilar character in a new project I’m working on.)

As for the drop panel, maybe Bo needs a nappy.

* I used the prefix “Baby” because it was a common thing in cartoons in the past. I used “Karl” because it sounded so unbaby-like.

** I used “Mort” because there are so many cartoonists with that name. Mort Walker. Mort Drucker. Mort Gerberg.
