I get a lot of my news online these days – I’m on the computer pretty much all the time, and that just seems to be the fastest source of information. But I still subscribe to the newspaper, and every morning, without fail, I read the comics. It’s funny how much a part of our culture these little comic strips have become, but they really are important. Have you noticed how a lot of strips are more political, more topical lately? One new strip has been getting a lot of attention, “Prickly City.” I like it for many reasons. One is that my good pal Scott Stantis created it. Scott is a really great guy with a wonderful family and I’ve known them for ages. The other reason I love “PC” is because it reminds me so much of the now-retired “Calvin and Hobbes.” It’s really sweet, and a little edgy, and definitely smart. It features a little girl named Carmen, and her pet coyote cub, Winslow. If you haven’t seen Prickly City in your hometown paper, check it out online at: http://www.ucomics.com/pricklycity
