One day Verne may just say the hell with all this and split for another strip. But who would have him?
Beetle Bailey? Verne would get fragged within a week.
Hagar? Vikings use turtles as flaming Death Frisbees
Pearls Before Swine? Rat and Pig would hold Verne while each of the Crocs takes a bite.
Girls in Apartment 3G? Verne would be arrested after being caught trying on their foundation garments.
Cul de Sac? Petey would suffocate Verne in his sleep. That strip’s not big enough for two neurotic dweebs.
Dilbert? Dogbert would sell Verne’s shell on E-bay.
For his own safety, I guess we’re stuck with him.
Here’s one of about 400 RingTales Dilbert Animations. We’ve been animating Dilbert for about three years now. Over 100 million views online. Check out more at babelgum.com.
Dilbert creator, Scott Adams, published these two timely and funny cartoons on the stolen iPhone 4G prototype on his blog yesterday. He had to post them on his blog because he couldn’t get them in the paper fast enough. He works far ahead and the earliest he could get them in the papers was mid June.
It’s absurd that he couldn’t just drop them in this week, but such are the publishing demands of an ancient and dying industry. At RingTales we discussed whether to animate these, but we wouldn’t be able to get them done until next week at which point we thought they would seem dated.
Such are the demands of a new and thriving industry.
