It's National Babbling Day!

I had two choices for the blog today: write three thousand words about nothing, or ask our cartoonists to talk about the things THEY babble about in their comics-- or the characters who just won't shut their traps!

Bill Holbrook, Kevin & Kell, On the Fastrack, and Safe Havens:


The dodos babble constantly...on social media. :)

Bud Grace, The Piranha Club:

Alex Hallatt, Arctic Circle:

I try and avoid babbling in Arctic Circle. I remember someone telling me that comic strips shouldn’t have more than 70 words in them and ideally massively fewer than that. Occasionally, one of my characters will have a bit of a rant though. Usually Howard.

Hilary Price, Rhymes With Orange:

My favorite bumper sticker is "Don't believe everything you think." So in terms of "Babbling Day," I spend a lot of time trying to quiet my internal anxiety-fueled broadcasts.

Ron Ferdinand, Dennis The Menace:


Dennis Mitchell, the babbling comedian.

John Rose, Barney Google and Snuffy Smith:

Terri Libenson, The Pajama Diaries:

I tend to babble about social issues that are close to my heart. Usually they are women’s issues, like equal pay, paid maternity leave, flex time, things like that.

Here’s a strip that I got babbly and preachy with. And I love it.
