    For my final redraw, I had to make another Russ Manning. There is no one better! And the image of the droids lost in space was the perfect opportunity to use every shiny and sparkly art supply I could find.

    Media: printmaking paper, Copic Multiliners, gel pens, paint pens, brush pens, Golden iridescent and interference acrylic paints, Montana Liquid Metallic Permanent Paint, sequins, glitter, Montana Hologram Glitter Effect Spray, red and gold Pebeo Gedeo Mirror Effect, nail polish in a little skull from Hot Topic

    It still very much needs rhinestones...

    Star Wars Newspaper Comic Strip: "The Constancia Affair." March 25, 1979. Writer and Illustrator: Russ Manning.

    December 1, 1921 Harold Teen by Carl Ed: "The Great Sacrifice"

    [Harold stands in the dining room and argues with his mother.] Mrs. Teen: Twenty-five dollars for one Christmas present. You must be out of your mind, Harold! Harold: Heck! You'd think I was still a child!

    [Behind a fence, Harold talks to his friend Buck.] Harold: Buck! I'm down in the dumps. I don't see how I'm gonna raise $25 to buy Lillums as good a Christmas present as Tubby's gonna buy her! Buck: Why not get a job in a department store, helping out during the Xmas rush, after school hours and Saturdays!

    [Harold is interviewed by a school-marm-looking woman behind a desk.] Boss: You will report on Saturday, to Mr. Hobbs. Your salary will be ten dollars per week! Harold: Yes'm.

    [Later that night, Harold serenades "A VERY RECENT PHOTO OF LILLUMS" "SOFTLY AND TENDERLY" under the light of a lamp while he sits in an armchair.] Harold: Little girl! Little girl! I am doing all this for you.

    December 1, 1921 Gasoline Alley by Frank King: "Walt Has Lots of Advice"

    [Walt Wallet sits in a rocking chair, slowly folding a large piece of paper while baby Skeezix sits on the floor, playing with a teddy bear.] Walt: Skeezix, R.F.B. suggests if I can't name you after my car, name you after part of it and call you Axel! And P.G. says Valentine, as you came on Valentine's Day.

    Walt: Make it Moses Ulysses, says Mrs. S.M.S. He's a foundling and a great traveler! And H.D.B. ventures Galley as suggestive of Gasoline Alley.

    Walt: Margaret F.S. oserves that if I name you Walt, I'll be father, mother, uncle and godfather all rolled into one.

    [Walt finishes folding a paper hat for Skeezix. He wears it, happily.] Walt: And L.V.K. says, you found him, didn't you? Call him Eureka!

    [Mutt spies a sign outside a theater which reads: "TODAY: 'UP-TO-THE-SECOND" NEWS REEL OF THE ARMS CONFERENCE CONGRESS. EXCLUSIVE PICTURE OF THE MASTER MIND."] Mutt: Jeff, here's just the picture I'm dying to see! I've got the price, come on! Jeff: Aw, that stuff bores me, Mutt! Let's go over and shoot a game of pool!

    [In the theater, Mutt and Jeff watch footage of President Warren G. Harding.] Mutt: This is the reel! There's the president! Wish I could get a job as his chauffeur! Jeff: A fine president, I calls him!

    [A black interstitial card now: THE MASTER MIND OF THE ARMS CONFERENCE FILMED AS HE WAS LEAVING THE WHITE HOUSE. EXCLUSIVE PHOTO.] Mutt: Here's the man the world is raving about! I'm crazy to see who he is! Jeff: ?

    [The screen reveals that the mastermind of the disarmament conference was none other than Jeff, as he jauntily walks out of the White House.] Mutt: What th'-? Jeff: Tee hee!

    [As the Jeff on screen doffs his hat, the real one lies underneath with a black eye, rubbing his head in pain. Mutt walks off, having just socked him. The rest of the audience stands watching, confused.]

    December 1, 1921 Thimble Theater by E.C. Segar: "All Warmed Up"

    [Harold Hamgravy sits, contented, on his footstool in front of a radiator. He reads the paper.] Hamgravy: Well, what's gonna happen. I'm getting some heat in this room.

    [He stands up.] Hamgravy: This is the first time there's been any heat this winter.

    [He lights a cigarette in a long holder.] Hamgravy: I guess the janitor's conscience is hurting him, and he's trying to make up for lost time.

    [He sits back down on his footstool.] Hamgravy: By golly, this is great. It's getting warmer all the time.

    [A fireman pops his head in the window, carrying in wafts of smoke. He holds a dripping hose in his left hand.] Fireman: Hey, you dumbbell, the house is on fire!!! [Hamgravy is knocked backwards off his footstool and his cigarette goes flying.]

    December 1, 1921 Bringing Up Father by George McManus

    [Jiggs sleeps soundly in an armchair, his stocking feet raised up on a table. Above him is a cloud with old Father Time inside, holding a sickle and watching the sand pour in an hourglass. An arrow labels this as "DENOTES ELAPSING OF TIME".]

    [Jiggs wakes up, stretches and yawns.] Jiggs: Ho-hum! I had a little nap. I wonder what time it is. I've got a date with Dinty this evening!

    [The maid walks in as Jiggs stands up from his chair.] Jiggs: Git me coat, maid, I'm going out this evenin'. Maid: At this hour?

    [Ignatz walks in.] Krazy: H'loi, "Ignatz." Ignatz: How.

    Ignatz: What's the idea, fool? Krazy: I gotta hold it.

    Ignatz: Well, get away from it.

    [Krazy walks off, exposing a hole in the tire that sprays air in Ignatz's face with a PFF.] Krazy: As you wish it.

    December 1, 1921 Our Boarding House by Gene Ahern

    "Henpeck" Harris is between two fires. [While Harris' wife looks on disapprovingly, an attractive young lady straightens his tie.] Lady: Oh, Mr. Harris. Do let me straighten your tie. Gracious! And you are always so exact about your appearance! Did you try to put it on without the aid of a mirror, or did Mrs. Harris tie it? Mrs. Harris: AHEM! Mr. Harris is quite capable of taking care of his personal defects himself, Miss Fisher!! Alexander, come away from that woman this instant, and get that silly look off your face! Alexander "Henpeck" Harris: Oh, ah, mm. Quite right, m'dear! Boarder: 'At boy is a matrimony martyr. Wedding bells sound like a railroad crossing to him now!

    December 1, 1921 $alesman $am by George "Swan" Swanson

    [Sam peers over the counter at a short kid on the other side. We cannot see the kid yet - instead, we see the contents of the glass counter display case, including a pair of pliers labeled "SURE CURE FOR TOOTH ACHE"] Kid: Do you sell medicine for measles? Sam: Sure, have you got 'em?

    [Sam crouches down worryingly close to the face of a small child infected with measles.] Kid: Yeah, an' I can keep my mouth shut too. Sam: Keep your mouth shut, whadda'ye mean?

    Kid: Aw, get wise, get wise. Sam: ????????????

    Kid: How much'll you give me to keep on going to school and give 'em to the rest o' the kids? [The punchline sends Sam reeling behind the counter and disturbs all the products in the case, too.]

    December 1, 1921 The Outbursts of Everett True by A.D. Condo

    As a child whose best friend was a book, who cringed through every read-aloud session in English class, I really sympathize with Everett here. I really do.

    [Everett sits in a smoking room with a group of men, all sitting in plush armchairs. Jackson, the man to Everett's right, reads his newspaper loudly.] Jackson: Har! Har! Har! Here's a good one, Everett! Listen to this one.

    [Everett snatches the man's newspaper and rips it out of his hands.] Everett: Give the paper to me, Jackson, and let me read it!! I've heard you before! If it's a good one it won't be ruined by you stumbling through it repeating every other sentence a couple of times and mispronouncing all the words of more than one syllable!!!

    Doesnt look like the heathcliff comic fandom (i hate that word) has much of a presence on tumblr, so i might just start sharing my favorite recent strips every once in a while--its not like i can really analyze these on any level, what you see is what you get. Its like an ozu film. Anyway, heres some good ones from last week.

    Ive read enough of it now to know that Peter Ghallager's Heathcliff is my new favorite thing (previous favorite things: sly cooper, krazy kat, i guess hohokum tho i return to that one less often)--i hesitate to use the phrase hyperfixation, but i do think about it a lot.

    #they need to release a book version of the recent comics come oooooooonnnnn #heathcliff#newspaper comic #i dont think ive mentioned this but rambling roommates round 3 was pretty heathcliff inspired #and i intend to make the references a little more overt in future rounds #lizzie smithson is a black hole which absorbs all of my interests and churns them together >:3

    November 30, 1921 Harold Teen by Carl Ed: "The Yuletide Problems Are Upon Us"

    [Harold stands on a sidewalk, talking to a young chum of his.] Chum: I was just chinning with Tubby up the street. He's gonna pay $25 for Lillums' Christmas present this year. Harold: Holy hamburger!

    [Harold walks off down the street, past a sign stuck in a yard which reads SHOP EARLY.] Harold: Twenty five berries!!!!! Holy hamburger! I didn't know there was that much jack in the world!

    [Harold gets home and walks past his mother in the dining room, making a beeline for his bedroom.] Harold: I gotta sick headache, Ma! Guess I don't wanna eat. Gonna lay down! Mrs. Teen: ?

    [Harold frets at a table in his bedroom, surrounded by scrapped pieces of paper.] Harold: Twenty five iron men, wow! What's that to a banker's son? Tain't right! I gotta get it! The pater would have a hemorrhage if I asked him for that much. Why wasn't Tubby born in some other town? Just my luck!

    November 30, 1921 Gasoline Alley by Frank King: "About Five Above Zero"

    [Walt Wallet stands in front of his front door. It's the middle of the night and he stands in the beam of his car's headlights in order to see. It's cold and we see Walt's breath puff out in front of his face.] Walt: Where in Hannibal did I put those keys? Somebody ought to appoint a commission for the partial elimination of male pockets.

    Walt: Too many pockets and too many keys. I've got a whole flock of orphans on this ring!

    Walt: A fellow carries about four live ones and a dozen antiques, and sorts 'em over in the cold every night all winter...

    Walt: ...instead of junking about three quarters of 'em! Ain't human nature wonderful!

    [Mutt and Jeff stand around talking to each other on a sidewalk.] Mutt: Jeff, all the big nations of the world are planning to take a naval holiday of ten years' duration, and that has given me an idea! Jeff: Shoot! What is it, old dear?

    Mutt: Well, why can't you and I carry out the same idea and junk all rough stuff for ten years? Jeff: By "rough stuff," do you mean soaking each other in the eye and throwing brickbats?

    Mutt: Yes! Let's shake and mutually agree that we'll taboo physical assaults for ten years! Jeff: I'll certainly mitt you on that!

    [Jeff snaps his fingers.] Jeff: And now that we've agreed to be peaceful I'm gonna tell you what's been on my mind for years! I think you're a hunk of cheese and a big bum! That for you! Tee hee! Mutt [taken aback]: ?

    [Jeff sits on the street holding his head, with a black eye. His top hat is crushed on the ground beside him.] Mutt: Sap! Jeff: ?

    Hamgravy: I graduated from a sleuth school. You wait here by that rock and I'll prove it. Criminal: Show me.

    [Hamgravy rushes back, pipe in mouth, with his diploma.] Hamgravy: He can't say I ain't a detective when he sees this diploma.

    [Hamgravy returns to the rock to find the criminal in the far distance, running away.] Hamgravy: Gee, you can't trust these crooks!
