Hello, dear Laugh Tracks readers. Apologies for not posting last week, but I was returning from vacation and found myself neck-deep in comics to read when I got back. Thank you for all the kind cards, emails and spam comments. Today I'd like to share a few favorites from this past week, beginning with Tuesday's Freshly Squeezed:
In a live twitter interview with Ed Stein a few weeks ago, he hinted at an upcoming story line addressing the election season discord within the Freshly Squeezed family. Starting this Monday, we got a glimpse into the family's squabbles and how they deal with each other's opposing views. It's a wry and amusing take on partisan politics (much like our @GocomicsConserv and @GocomicsLiberal Twitter accounts).
From yesterday... Norman Drabble is a man after my own heart (and stomach).
Tiny Sepuku by Ken Cursoe is a great large-format strip that we're fortunate to have on GoComics. I found this one especially funny — and more than a little heartbreaking.
Last but not least, it's an epic battle of the Poohs in today's Lio. So far, GoComics commenters are betting heavily on Classic Pooh, with the caveat that the big money is backing Disney Pooh. Personally I'd have to pull for Classic Pooh, if for no other reason than his Jack Dempsey stance. Nice to see Piglet make an appearance in DP's corner, though.
Thanks for tooning in, and see you next time!
