Two Cartoons, Living or Dead.January 26, 2011
Almost nine years ago today, I ran the strip that is probably now the most closely identified with Pearls.
Today, I’ve had a number of readers point out this Dennis the Menace to me.
The funny thing about comics is that stuff like this happens all the time. I know that Wiley Miller (Non Sequitur) and I have even run the same joke on the same day, a few weeks after Dave Coverly (Speed Bump) ran the exact same joke. Of course, I’ve also had the bad kind of “coincidence” where someone has taken one of my three-panel strips and copied it word-for-word.
What’s your opinion here? (But be nice.)
