Arthur, King of Time and Space


Longtime readers will recall that I keep a "filler reserve" of cartoons to run on days when I can't produce a new one, that I like to run out the filler reserve in December because they all have the present year's copyright date on them, and that I can only do that on weekend days while a contestant in the Daily Grind if I wish to remain a contestant in the Daily Grind. Shorttime readers will have figured out that much from the top cartoon today.

What still bears explanation is that, this year - what with the contemporary arc revelation surrounding Arthur's eighteenth birthday two weeks ago - there was too much going on for me to remember to spread the year's leftover fillers one-a-day on weekend days. So I'm running them all today.

What also may bear some explanation is that D.J. Coffman is a jerk. Sometimes. When he feels like it. Which is most of the time.

... Okay, it bears more explanation than that: D.J. is a fellow Daily Grinder. At the start of the contest he was one of two contestants who truly took to heart the admonishment at the message board for us to start "trash-talking" each other, and most of us were quite taken aback. D.J.'s humor style generally is much more Stone and Parker than Parker and Hart, and despite (or because of) our discomfort he went with it. Over about a year and a half he probably succeeded in offending the rest of us at least once each, and loved it. For some of that time he also was always the first contestant to call the rest of us on a perceived violation of the Grind rules; in most cases the judges ruled in favor of the other party, and in most of those cases D.J. failed to let the issue drop in a timely fashion. But D.J. is one of the few of us who actually makes his living at cartooning, and his changing professional life led him to drop out of the Grind a few months ago in favor of other concerns. He's doing exactly what he wants with his life and I say all power to him.
