On the Spectrum #81: Two Brothers

(click to enlarge)























Sorry, no snappy punchline with this one.  I just felt like contrasting Michael and Jacob and drawing (and recycling) some cute stuff.  This IS sort of a part 1 of 2, as it kind of leads into next week's.  It's not the same joke or theme, just that the last panel of this one is the first panel of the next one.  (But can you see the posts on the trampoline this time?  Yeah, still not sure what happened to them last time! LOL)

I'd like to say something about last week's... As with everything here, it's autobiograophical, and based on things as they happen in our lives.  But I decided to run THAT ONE, as it was, as kind of a nod to another strip I'd read YEARS ago, from what I consider to be the greatest comic strip of all time. (Hopefully Mr. Watterston won't mind me sharing it with you here):
























And while I was searching for a copy of that...

...I came accross THIS, which I just thought was really cool. (They really nailed the style, no?) And yeah, it goes without saying, but this is TOTALLY not mine! LOL  I think it evokes up a pretty wide range of emotions though.  And while Watterson was famous for not merchandising or liscensing Clavin and Hobbes, and he never wanted to let anyone else get involved with it or use his work, for fear that they would alter the spirit and innocence of it, somehow... I think he'd approve of this one. :)
