have you got a link to an example, trollope?
everything he's ever done, more or less

He's a superb caricaturist; but he also does a "comic" strip that has no sense of humour at all, imo.
Matt Pritchett on the other hand is hilarious, every day
LOL, I like the Pritchett, jno, you should post that on the Clarkson thread!

I've decided I'm not going to talk about Clarkson any more, I don't like him anyway.

I used to love Bill Tidy's Cloggies but I don't know if they're online anywhere.

Also Bristow


and Em is great

jno..please..Steve Bells If... is Brilliant
it's popular among penguin fanciers, that's all I'm saying.
Question Author
Big fan of Martin Rawson too
I liked Bristow, too.
nope, hate Rowson's drawing style, he tries too hard to make everything look ugly and it all comes out really scratchy. I love Bell's (just not his sense of humour).
-- answer removed --
I'm with Steve -Carl Giles by a million miles. I was fascinated by his cartoons even when I was small and couldn't understand their content. I have books of his annuals which make great comfort reading ona dark winter's evening.
Sadly missed and a talent never replicated.
Anybody remember Bloom County?

Bloom County, yes, well...
Q&A with Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury:

Q: I know Bloom County bugged you and I cannot figure out why. I mean, why didn't the old saw of "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery mean anything to you?
--Peter Zale, University Heights, Ohio

A: A critic for the Comics Journal once wrote that to call Bloom County funny is like complimenting a shoplifter on being a snappy dresser. Breathed borrowed from a variety of his colleagues -- even as he scorned their work. He once wrote a series of strips about two characters looking at clouds that was so clearly lifted from a legendary Peanuts strip that the Washington Post called him on it. His reply: It was an "homage" -- never mind that the Peanuts strip had appeared 20 years earlier and was not referenced. The line between emulation and theft is a fairly subjective one, but Breathed developed a poor reputation among his peers because of the specificity of his lifts -- and his arrogance when confronted with them.
just to add I clipped that from years ago; it's been taken off the site now.
