    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #672 (9/17/11) (December 7, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 3 works by this artist have been used here (6 times total, including this Throwback Thursday repeat, and 2 repeats of another work), the September 5, 2012, strip being its first use (the 14 hyperlinks in my comment there have been deactivated, and the line breaks removed, but perhaps the text remains informative). The February 10, 2015, strip is the prior non-repeat by him.

  3. 1 day ago on Buckles

    I hope you realize Mr. Gilbert ended Buckles March 21, 2021, and this is a rerun of a strip that was drawn in the late 1990’s (can’t be specific since it lacks the © included when it was published).

  6. 3 days ago on Cul de Sac

    What’s even odder is this is a repeat and it was in color when in ran in 2012 and 2017:

    A couple weekends ago, GoComics was down for about 4 full days (was back online Tuesday afternoon). Strips that run in newspapers are submitted days, if not weeks, in advance; so, when it came back online that day’s set of such strips were ready to be shown, because GoComics already had them and the colorist had colored them if they were submitted in B&W (which the great majority of such strips are). But today, strips (e.g. The Argyle Sweater, Close to Home, Baldo Luann, probably some others) that are usually in color are in B&W; same thing happened yesterday, but with different strips. My theory was those were submitted while GoComics was down, and instead of having the colorist color multiple days of strips instead of just what was submitted that day, GoComics decided to show the submitted B&W strip when it came time to publish it. But, that it’s also happening with repeated strips sort of blows that out of the water. Oh well, …
