End-of-Year Rodent

Bizarro is brought to you today by Sparkling Refreshment.

This week begins another guest cartoonist week by Wayno. As you readers “in the know” know, newspaper cartoons (other than editorial ones) are typically done weeks ahead of time. Back in November when I was preparing to leave NYC, I needed to get way ahead on deadlines to clear some time for myself to pack, move, find a new place, move in, find my art supplies and computer, and get started working again. During that time, it was a huge help to have Wayno barf up another week of cartoons for me. Thanks, pal. So from now through Sunday, Jan 1, you’ll see some of his crazy cartoon concoctions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed not having to create them.

Here, of course, is Wayno’s blog with his daily comments about the gags you’ll see this week: WaynoBlog

Did anyone have a good holiday weekend? I’m not big on celebrating Xmas but I wish there was a Santa Claus for grown-ups who, instead of bringing things in the middle of the night, would put things away. I’d love to wake up on Xmas morning to find that my house had been cleaned up.

Back to work. I’m hammering out cartoons for mid-January today.
