Today’s comic is from Red and Rover.
It features the 10-year-old Russell McLean (“Red”) and his dog, Rover. The strip is set in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and it’s a time when small boys really did still go barefoot most of the summer, and so we’ll see Red barefoot quite often (not the rarity that we see with Dennis the Menace).
The author of the strip, Brian Basset says that he is “retro” kind of guy, so I’m guessing that’s why he gets the barefoot boys of the late 1960s right.
Today’s strip was published on July 5, 2010.
And I think we all can see why Red is so good at climbing trees.
