Scott Adams is on vacation, who should draw Dilbert?

Too bad Charles Schulz is no longer with us, I wonder what he would have done with the strip.

BTW: the first one is Lynn Johnston.

I’d like to see Alex Ross do a fully painted Dilbert strip.

Otherwise, whoever does Mary Worth. :smiley:

Oh, and Berke Breathed.

I think he’ll get Darby Conley, of “Get Fuzzy” to do one. That strip seems to have a lot in common with Dilbert.

The noses were a dead giveaway. :smiley:

Maybe for a one shot -Watterson of “Calvin & Hobbes” could be lured.

I like this idea, it’s better than crappy “classics”.

Dammit, DrDeth! You stole my idea!

If Scott were to extend offers beyond the comics page, Jack Davis (most notably of Mad Magazine fame) would be a good choice.

Heh, the mystery artist gave Dilbert quite a paunch. :slight_smile:

It was the middle panel with them moving away and the “movement lines” behind Dilberts legs that cemented it for me.

Gary Larson. Imagine a food chain poster with Ratbert, Catbert and Dogbert on it. The possibilities are endless.

Oh, to have the master of single panel cartoons back among us.

Your Lordship- I only steal from the best! :smiley:

Zenster- I dunno- mighty tough choice between Larson & Watterson. I’d have to lean towards C&H meself.

I don’t care who draws Dilbert. As long as someone new writes Dilbert so it starts being funny again.

Picasso’s dead, right?


Mike Judge?

The kid from Family Circus who fills in for Bil Keane when he’s “on vacation”?

I like Jeff Olsen’s idea of a Mad Magazine artist. If only Don Martin were still alive! Or maybe Al Jaffee could rig up a folding comic strip.

I’d love to see Jack Kirby do a Dilbert strip.

Yeah, I know. I know.

Looks like I was dead-on…Tuesday’s strip is done by Conley. I’m quite disappointed, though. I really thought he’d do a real Dilbert strip (like Lynn Johnston did), considering that he includes a talking dog and cat in his own, instead of a sort of meta-cartoon thing, like Doonesbury keeps lapsing into.

Frank Miller. (I forget…does he actually illustrate?)

Failing him, Julie Bell & Boris Vallejo.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker - from South Park, I’d like to see what they would do to Dilbert & Company.

I’d like to see the cartoonist that does Shoe (whose name, unfortunately, escapes me at the moment) do a guest Dilbert strip.

I think his humor is in a similar vein sometimes, and I like his artwork. He could probably do something interesting with it.

Isn’t he dead? :confused:

How about Johnny Hart of B.C. and Wizard of Id fame? Dilbert needs a big ol’ infusion of J.C.

I like some Dilbert. Well, I used to like some Dilbert, until he started recycling all the same material IMO, but I think he is the antithesis of everything Watterson stood for. Poor artwork, little character development, throw-away gags (funnay as they sometimes are), and extreme merchandising make Dilbert the Anti-Calvin. Watterson, a private man, was not too shy about ripping on cartoonists like Adams.

Actually, I could be mis-remembering, but I swear Watterson wrote a prophetic piece once in which he pretty much predicted a strip like Dilbert would come out. If I remember correctly, he talked about a simple comic involving disaffected office workers that could be merchandised to the hilt. And he didn’t seem happy about it. I’ll look and see if I can find it.

Gotta be Bil Keane.

(And you know something? I totally got the Monday guest artist wrong. Arrgh!)
