Enjoy this MAILBAG DAY, because it’s the last one for a long, long time. The mailing list started taking off, and there was less need to address comments and questions directly in the strip. And, again, I’m lazy. So lazy.
Ed Wells contributes again. Cory-Ellen Nadel is a college friend who would soon make her most indelible mark in Narbonic history by adopting an adorable black-and-white kitten. A lot of the people on the mailing list at that point were Vassar friends.
Almost from the beginning, Helen was the character people most often identified as sexy, even though she was still drawn pretty crudely at this point. It’s that cheesecake pose in the paper-doll set, I guess. For the record, I always thought Dave was cute, but he did get cuter later on.
All things considered, and leaving aside my consistently atrocious coloring, this is still a pretty good Sunday strip. “They’d sic the Cool World police on you in a second” is deathless dialogue, I tell you.
