Today’s cartoon is a repeat from 2009. But new to the blog.
Fine work by T. I like how when Hammy yanks his tail, his head pops open.
Also nice Hedge mention today on our Occupy Suburbia storyline in Linda Stamato’s column on NJ.com.
Have a great rest of your Sunday.
Terra Nova’s not awful. It’s just dumb downed sci-fi.
The Jurassic Dawson’s Creek teenage angst stuff feels like a Fox executive’s note. The Avatar actor who plays the leader is such a cartoon.
But I have to admit the Sixer subplot is intriguing. Keeps me watching.
One question: did they ever explain why being in the past isn’t changing the future? Are they on a different time line or something?
Sometimes I like to imagine someone coming to Over the Hedge for the very first time and reading a cartoon like today’s.
I imagine most scratch their head in confusion and mutter something about the sad state of decline of one of America’s greatest art forms. But a select few smile and say, “I’m home.” To you I say…
Welcome. Wipe your feet. The beer in the fridge is mine. And don’t mind Hammy hugging your leg. He really doesn’t like in that way. He just likes to hug.
Yesterday I (actually my agent Dan) closed a two book deal for my new middle-school illustrated novel series, “Safety Patrol,” with Disney-Hyperion. It’s about three misfit 8th graders who suffer peer allergies. Nick, Molly and Karl are forced to band together in the lamest club in school: The Safety Patrol. With the help of janitor/mentor/possible ex-spy Mr. Dupree, they attempt to keep the school safe from bullies, a busy-body counselor and jell0-meat.
Sort of Mission Impossible for kids.
Tentatively scheduled for Spring/Fall 2013.
