Breaking away from the "first bird of spring" theme for a little while, here is Speed Bump from this date in 2012:
This Strange Brew is actually from three years ago tomorrow, but as we have another calendar conflict I am presenting it a day "early" in keeping with the theme of the past few days.
And now here's a Six Chix strip from March 4, 2014 ... following up nicely on the theme of our just-completed trio of Mutts strips. (In case it's too small to read, Margaret Shulock is the "chick" drawing this panel; as I explained way back a couple hundred entries ago, Six Chix is a collaborative effort by six female cartoonists, each of which draws the strip one day a week and one Sunday every six weeks.)
The third in a row of "Spring early birds" from Mutts, two years ago today:
Another "too early a bird" Mutts, from this date in 2014.
We'll do three Mutts strips in a row now, from two different years but with a common theme. The first was published March 3, 2012.
This is a comic I don't follow, but which occasionally people bring to my attention. It's called Close To Home and it's humor is, like the other single-panels we feature, on the absurd side. This one is from one year ago today.
I'm posting this Speed Bump from 2013 early because we'll be in a Mutts story arc when the actual anniversary comes. I didn't want to pass it up ... reminds me too much off all those times I fell asleep as a kid in the back seat of our car on the way home from somewhere.
Believe it or not, I have a "leap day" toon! Frank and Ernest had a bird-themed strip on this date eight years ago (2008) ... or is that two years ago because this date only occurs every fourth year?
