An Interview with Frank Cho

A friend linked me to this interesting article on Frank Cho. He described it as slightly depressing but I think the most depressing aspect might be Frank’s dedication to drawing enormous breasts at all times in spite of no longer being 15 years old. The article mentions his years of syndication with Liberty Meadows and the changes required over the years, and I’m not really surprised to hear that a lot of the arguments were over sexual content. One of the most interesting changes the article doesn’t mention by name happened in the original transition from college strip to newspaper comic, when the main character magically transformed from platypus to human. I’m assuming this is because that character was in a relationship with buxom male fantasy Brandy, and maybe that was just too weird for primetime when one of them was an animal. Having read both, I’m highly in favor of the change myself.

Last Hurrah

We put Moose in the kennel over the weekend while we went down to Miami Beach for some rest. They love our dog at the boarders and squeal over him every time he visits. Moose is less enamored with the kennel, he shook all the way there and as soon as we placed him into the boarder’s arms he leaped back into Scott’s arms. He came home with a bath, a new hanky around his neck and a report card that says he was an A+ “happy camper.” We came home with a full day of doing nothing more strenuous than moving from the pool to the ocean, but that’s getting to be as much as I can handle. In fact, after a very uncomfortable drive there and back, I decided I’ve been on my last trip away before Baby.
