Bird Toon of the Day - May 11, 2015
Six Chix' Rina Piccolo's take on the typical nature tour/documentary narrative, from April 30, 2014. Information about this unusual daily comic strip after the jump:
Six Chix is a unique entry to the comics pages; it is a collaborative effort of six woman cartoonists who each draw one strip on a specific weekday (Isabella Bannerman on Mondays, Margaret Shulock Tuesdays, Rina Piccolo Wednesdays, Anne Gibbons Thursdays, Benita Epstein Fridays, and Stephanie Piro Saturdays) with the Sunday edition rotated between them so each does one per six-week period.
I have a handful of bird-related Six Chix strips in my archives. Bannerman does a lot of "play on word" strips which feature the occasional parrot; Shulock often does strips on outdoor birds and sometimes ventures inside pet shops for her humor; Piccolo likes to play off of cliches and sayings, which bring birds in once in a while; and the others are few and far between on bird-related strips. Still, a toon is a toon!
