Ah, the power of creating an immersive imaginary world. And yeah, it’s ART alright. No question.
Garry Trudeau’s very sharp Doonesbury is still my all-time-favourite for all kinds of reasons. Locally (New Zealand) I like Tom Scott (see this & this) with honourable mentions (gee, I cite them here at The Paepae frequently enough!) to Emmerson, Body, Slane and Hodgson. Giants. Far sharper than I am.
But, like millions of others, I also love Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes and Gary Larson’s Far Side.
Oh, what riches! Wonderful.
