What a fun guy. :roll: In what we laughingly call reality I believe mushrooms and toadstools are a short-lived phenomenon, which means that wherever Copper and Fred are trying to get to they've either A) got to get there fast, or B) find a new route through a completely different forest when the old...

It's true that the tension between their attitudes doesn't come across as well as it might. On the other hand, the payoff is pretty good and I like the way it was foreshadowed in the very first panel.

Do I detect a certain influence of Moebius in the architectural perspectives?

For some reason I saw this as an animated short with those wobbly outlines, being narrated by an incredibly laconic guy with a Californian accent. Maybe he should stop taking so many drugs too.

What, no replies? These are really good. I only have one small technical quibble, which is that the coarser colour screening looks a bit weird on the web, but the art is fine and the situations are nicely surreal and funny. I could certainly imagine seeing these comics in newspapers and magazines an...

Unfortunately I see a potential conflict over the character names. There's already a webcomic called Boy on a Stick and Slither by Steven L. Cloud which (as the name suggests) features a snake character called Slither.

A child's imagination is a mystery even to the gods. And quite rightly so. Great payoff.

Awww, poor old Fred. I've never seen him so stressed out before. Hope he's OK.

The trouble with syndication is that there aren't many newspapers that would want to wait a month (or - ahem - longer) between strips.

OK, I won't ruin it by asking stupidly logical questions like if they're always jumping down, how do they ever get up again? I'm sure this strip represents some very profound aspect of human nature which I'll probably figure out sometime during the next decade or so, but in the meantime I'll just ad...

I thought this was fun, although it doesn't seem to have a point...not that it really needs one, of course. The text size is a little small, but that's a minor gripe. I do have one serious factual quibble. The plane on Page 2 can't be an Airbus 320, which is a shorter-range 2-engined jet. It must ha...

Aww, poor Fred. Can't just relax and enjoy the moment. I know just how he feels. Whenever I'm supposed to be enjoying myself I always spend the whole time worrying that I'm not having enough fun. Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. PS I like the bridge design - it's nice and quirky. Makes you wonder why they had to...

I hate to ruin the mood with quibbles, but the position of the needle in the penultimate panel looks a bit odd. Also, most gramophones have a big round diaphragm above the needle rather than a small pickup. Although since there's no winding handle I suppose it could be an electric replica.

The Earthsea trilogy by Ursula K. LeGuin is great, and it's not typical fantasy either... I don't know how to describe it. (I also like the Alvin Maker series as well as everything by Orson Scott Card.) 1. There are now more than 3 Earthsea volumes - 5 novels and a story collection, I believe. 2. U...

Do they still make candy cigarettes? I think they were banned in the UK, though whether it was because they glamorized smoking or just because of the dye additives I'm not sure!
