Here’s a comic from July 6, 2014. It’s from a strip called Herb and Jamaal.
It just about says it all, doesn’t it?
Today’s comic comes from Agnes, a strip from Tony Cochrane about a poor girl who lives with her “Granma”. I’ve never really “gotten” the strip, and I’m not sure I “get” the point of this one, either. It does seem to rely on the standard, exaggerated fears of the shod, though.
It appeared on June 19, 2006.
With this strip we finish our sequence from Red and Rover. It’s the Sunday comic. Again, the joke isn’t about bare feet, but the writer captures the 1960s very nicely with Martin, Red’s older brother, showing how you really skateboarded back then. The strip is from June 22 last year.
For the next few Saturdays I’ll show a sequence of comics. They’re from Red and Rover, a strip set in the 1960s. The joke isn’t always necessarily about bare feet, but it’s summer, and you’re a kid. So of course you’re barefoot.
This comic appeared on June 18 last year.
In subsequent strips we’ll see that Red is true to his word.
