This week, despite rather unseasonably balmy weather in the Northeast, Brian Walker posts another look back at a vintage Hi and Lois Sunday page featuring cool Fall Foliage. The kids are looking at the falling leaves and wondering why they all of a sudden have chores…
And on the Beetle Bailey blog, it’s time for fractured tales from American literature. When Sarge falls asleep reading Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer, he dreams about whitewashing a fence – and a hilarious fight ensues, as can only happen in the comics.
Carve for a Cause!
Dean Young and the “Blondie” creative team donated a Dagwood pattern and Mort Walker & Co., a Sarge pattern for CARVETOBER. Sales of the pumpkin-carving patterns benefit charitable causes. Learn more here: https://www.carvtober.com
