As an aspiring comic strip cartoonist I’m usually dismayed by some of the strips that seem to stay way past thier prime. Beetle Bailey, The Born Loser, Garfield…I’m not saying that they suck. But they haven’t been funny for a long time. (Well, Garfield always sucked)
Its a shame because there are realy good strips out there, like Frazz, Pearls before the swine and Jump start and dozens of strips that won’t get space until some of the older ones go out to pasture.
I’ve read that Berk Breathed (Bloom County, Outland, Opus) had commented on Jim Davis’ Garfield factory, but I can’t find anything online. I was wondering if anyone here may know where I can read about it.
