YOU ALL ALREADY KNOW THIS, OF COURSE
BUT IT STRUCK ME today that Koford's "Laugh-Out-Loud Cats" is not just a daily comic, but specifically A SINGLE PANEL daily comic.
AND MORE SPECIFICALLY AND STRANGELY: a good one.
THIS, MY FRIENDS, is a bold innovation. Has Ape-Lad broken curse of PLUGGERS?*
(ONE MIGHT HAVE SAID the "Curse of Ziggy" or "Curse of Howard Huge," but that would be mean.)
(OR: ONE MIGHT HAVE SAID the "Curse of the Lockhorns." But I actually admire the sheer, misanthropic brio of those Lockhorns.)
(After all, it can't be easy to distill all the drunken, marital loathing of WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? and pour it all into a single, hate-filled funny pages panel day after day after day.
(Who would have thought THAT would work?)**
That is all.
*Hint: he has.
**Double hint: it's doesn't.
