Tuesdays somehow skate with Mondays getting all the Garfield-related anguish, grief and curses heaped upon it. Tuesdays are as bad as Monday, if not worse since Monday is horrible going back to work and Tuesday is a Groundhog Day type repeat. At least Wednesdays are Webcomics Wednesdays here at the DCR and bring a glimmer of hope.
Ballard Street by Jerry Van Amerongen:
Speaking of terrible, how do metal bra/bikini's work like in this cartoon or a Thor comic book? Cold, uncomfortable, and constricting come to mind (of course, all brassieres could be that way for all I know). I see this, and think that this is a concept that no sane woman would ever conceive, let alone wear. "For the warrior woman who needs extra support!" Also, what exactly is the blessing for in this cartoon? Is he leaving the house or entering? Not really sure this explains a lot after the reader gets past all the metal wear.
Birdbrains by Thom Bluemel // Bliss by Harry Bliss // Eek! by Scott Nickel:
Is this a bizarre circumstance and random occurrence of the Universe? Do cartoonists correspond on a platform and bounce ideas off each other like "Let's have mythical creatures sitting down at a psych exam, at an awkward angle on a table, or in their waiting room--that would be funny." Forget that none of these are actually funny in any way, shape or form: I am just fascinated that they all exist on the same day. Kudos to Bliss for that great Wolfman, though.
Shoe by Chris Cassatt and Gary Brookins:
As a Massachusetts resident, I thoroughly enjoy seeing the hideous, drunken politician bird-creature representing long-time Senior Senator from Massachusetts--Ted Kennedy--is still alive and sneaking away with call girls at every opportunity. And, yes, I read the Kennedy-Bird-Creature's voice in my head with that distinctive Kennedy accent.
