Sunday Funnies Stuff ‘n’ Fluff
At the very least one paper didn’t get the order positioned appropriately (in time?) with their paginator.
So far as Murphy’s Legislation goes, it isn’t the worst factor to go fallacious. However when one has an merchandise lacking from one’s Weekend Enjoyable & Video games part, aka the comics pages, like we do immediately, it’s noticeable. Much more obtrusive is what’s said as a replacement: “DOODLES HAS ENDED YOU NEED TO CONTACT CREATORS TO PICK A REPLACEMENT FEATURES [sic] AND LET REED BRENNAN KNOW WHAT IT IS.” Whoops. We didn’t imply for that to occur.
“Doodles” ended as a result of its cartoonist handed away. Our alternative for “Doodles” is known as “Caption It!” Clearly, “Caption It!” didn’t make it in that spot prefer it ought to have. Thus, you see that word as an alternative on Web page 3 of our Weekend Enjoyable & Video games part.

Shock! An organization referred to as JGD has apparently bought the Comics Sherpa name and is utilizing it at hand out coloring pages for the kiddies. Dozens of pages can be found to obtain or print with the vast majority of them Halloween themed. As seen above they’ve use of some Harvey Comics characters.
Joe Martin is complicated me.
To the very best of our data Joe Martin’s Cats With Hands went into rerun status last year. The dailies include the unique date of concern, whereas the Sundays, although carrying the present date, added a “Better of…” lead into the title.
Beginning October 17, 2021 the Sunday pages now not carried that discover as a part of the title.
Has Cat With Fingers returned to new Sundays? Did Cats With Fingers dispose of “Better of” for advertising causes however proceed as reruns? Had been the Sunday Cats With Fingers ever actually reruns?
Extra Joe Martin confusion:
What’s with the font within the final panel of immediately’s Willy n Ethel?
Whereas with reference to reruns…
A public service to readers of Tom Batiuk strips.
We have been holding off on this to pair it with the present Gasoline Alley. However Jim Scancarelli didn’t go along with the Walt and Skeezix more-or-less annual Autumn stroll immediately, and subsequent week will most likely be a Halloween Sunday. So right here is the primary of the character hikes by Frank King from 98 years in the past this previous week (October 21, 1923). Perhaps Jim will give us a stroll in November?
