One of my favorite comic strips ever, back when I viewed newspapers on paper, was Chip Dunham’s puckish Overboard (is it still running? Why yes, yes it is!) (and I had no idea he lived in Michigan; interesting). Dunham’s humor was fairly warped, and was very often in sync with my own, and though his characters are simplistic, they are all the more lovable for it (long live Nate!).

One of my all-time favorites featured the crow’s nest guys just standing, facing different directions, holding mugs of coffee. A crow flies up and lands in front of one of them, saying “Awk! Death! Awwwk! Death! AWWWWWWWK! DEATH!!!”, and flies away. Then a panel of the two of them standing there. Then the one turns to the other and says “So, how’s your Monday starting out?”

Chris Muir channeled Dunham’s muse today.

  1. Dunham is GREAT. The excellent writing reminds me of ‘Pooch Cafe’ a bit.
