More than words can say.
"More than words." It's not just a sappy Extreme song from 1990, it's also something every cartoonist who's in it for the long haul needs to remember. Verbal gags are fine, but give the reader something to look at. When I started writing TV spots for McDonald's after graduation, I would start out by writing a radio spot and then trying to put visuals to it. Backwards, all backwards--particularly since radio is, above all, a visual medium. As for this strip, it was a kick to draw, and I dig it to this day.
