COMICS SHERPA: EDITOR'S PICKS

This recurring LAUGH TRACKS feature highlights individual Sherpa strips and panels that for one reason or another caught the fancy of the aide de sherpa. It could be anythng; the drawing, the writing, the humor, the coloring, that they tried something interesting, or that it's a new step for that particular creator.

 

We hope this quirky sampler will alert you to features you might not yet have noticed amid Sherpa's abundant, ever-changing, and eclectic mix, and that it gives Sherpa creators a modicum of helpful feedback.

ARE WE HAVING WHITE-HOT CROSSOVER ACTION YET?

Until last night I had somehow missed both the remarkable four-day ZIPPY THE PINHEAD series that Bill Griffith and Bil Keane did together, and Zippy's appearance in FAMILY CIRCUS.  I hasten to pass along word of these marvels, which Bill Griffith explained in the Appreciation he wrote shortly after Bil Keane's passing, here.

UNICORN EXECUTIONS

Steve Breen -- two-time Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist and co-creator of the strip GRAND AVENUE -- has published this unusual book, the cover of which speaks for itself. As Michael Cavna explains: "Three of his sons would toss out ideas for illustrations that combined Lincoln and 'Wolverine' Logan, or Trump and a Tyrannosaurus – when not imagining alien abductions or Jedi mutations or, in a particularly notable example, death by cute fantasy animal." (Read the complete Cavna WaPo column here.)
