First | Previous | 2013-12-15 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Craig Wittler

Zonker Harris: "@Zonker What happens to comics if newspapers go away?"
Mike Doonesbury: What happens? Take a look!
Jon: I glued a blender to my face.
Jon: Gee, I sure wanted that last donut.
Garfield: They haven't stopped making frozen pudding pops, have they
Zonker Harris: Feel how empty your life became? If only for a second?
Mike Doonesbury: Stick with print folks. This DOESN'T have to happen.

On Feb. 2nd, 2013, Doonesbury upset a lot of people with the comic featuring the two panels at the start and end and a totally blank space inbetween. A meme was born with a lot of people associated with webcomics filled in the space (including one with a panel from Garfield Minus Garfield), but I felt Square Root of Minus Garfield also needed to be represented with three panels from among the most frequently 'Square Rooted' strips.
