Welcom to Bimbolala

Three more P.T. Bimbo sundays from the first year. Let me tell you why I think these are great.

Great sarcastic characters. You don't see a lot of these anymore. All men these days are in touch with their feelings.

Great cartooning. Who but a cartoonist could come up with a gag like this. Who but a cartoonist would know this is funny?

Silent gags with great timing. I won't say it's a lost art, but comic strips these days depend far too much on dialogue and not enough on characters behaving in their own way to certain situations. The good ones do it, like Mutts. It may be why all the good cartoonists write their own stuff - except maybe for those who have their wrtiters submit their material in sketch form.
