Back to BikBok…

Looks like Mark has healed from his “Scrapes…” and is continuing to learn from his GenZ son…

Russ?? Not sure I have ever heard Rusty called Russ before… But Mark is still verklempt over the fact that he has zero Social Media presence… even after he lit up southern Florida!

“Old People Complaining about Politics…” HA! Define “old…” What? Like 24 years old or something? Probably. First foreshadowing into what the Sunday Lesson will be about, by the way…

Mark now realizing that he has been banging his head against the proverbial tree trunk (like the Pileated Woodpecker in the fourth panel) trying to get something going, and now he realizes that “BikBok” is his ticket to something akin to fame…

But before we get tooooo far, let’s get cozy with the “Land Shrimp…”

I know the world eats crickets (and other bugs) and I would probably join in if prepared properly… skewered, grilled and full of BBQ sauce! yum, yum!

Wait a gosh darn second! Another Fox reference? That was the ‘Teen Girl Sparkle’ Lady’s spirit animal, and here it is again…

We’ll stop here, but stay tuned as more misfortune befalls Mark… Fairly slapstick, I fear… Less dramatic than the past, more physical humor! To each his or her own, I guess…

  1. Well, appreciate you showing the Sunday strip, as we don’t get that here in the Twin Cities, as you know. The art work is alternatingly interesting and just plain weird. Case in point: the Fox panels for Tuesday. Examples: The somewhat erratic skewing of figures (panel 4), flattened images (panel 2), though the “speed lines” on the ground and the elongated image of Mark running may just be a metaphorical symbol to exaggerate movement. I may also be reading too much into what could just be a rushed drawing job.

    But I kind of like this take on “Alexander and The No Good Very Bad Day”

    • Sorry your post only now (7/12/21) got published, as it lay more or less “hidden” in a pending folder I overlooked for some time. As you indicate, there are, indeed, qualitative differences between the dailies and the Sundays, in part, because Sunday formats are larger and allow greater expression. The “speed lines” you notice have been around for over 100 years. The elongation that you are suggesting as metaphor is not so long in comics, though it might reflect some of the elements of the Italian “Futurist” art style of the early 20th century.
