T.G.I.F.: September 2, 2005



In Part 2 of this continuing series, I am already faced with a crisis: What, in today's comics, makes me smile with stupid glee besides Yotsuba&!? There's a lot of smart going on. There's a lot of cool going on. There's a lot of interesting going on. Not so much on the happy, though.

But it's out there, and I'll find it.

Take, for example, today's image from GØDLAND. This space epic by Casey and Scioli really picked up in it's second issue, concluding with this splash page of the once-mute Kirby Space Dog announcing his dissatisfaction with being captured, abused, and used as a hallucinogen.

He may be unhappy, but I'm not. Puppies make almost everyone happy. Giant green talking puppies from outer space crackling with KirbyDots? That makes me happy.

It will also make me happy to make a donation to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts today.

Might I recommend Banana Sunday from Oni? It's all kinds of happy, plus a narcoleptic gorilla.

Me too! That and the fact that my back-ordered copy of this issue finally arrived on Wednesday! So cool.

David -
"Banana Sunday"? You are correct, sir!

I fishing around this morning for a T.G.I.F., I actually said to myself: "Why didn't I buy Banana Sunday? I know that would have happiness!" I will check the shelves of my LCS when I next visit.

Jim -
If it wasn't for your take on #1, I doubt I would have bought #2. And I really thought it picked up.
