A Comics, Candy and Company Clambake

A Sunday Miracle


For the first time in nearly four years Alley Oop and Ooola that adults have appeared in Sunday comics since Joey Alison Sayers and Jonathan Lemon took over. The last time they appeared as adults was on the Sunday January 6, 2019 rerun (the last original Sunday appearance was August 26, 2018).

Mike brought up the topic of candy today and it just so happened that a week ago the store I was in had red vines on sale, and I couldn’t resist. When I got to the bottom there was a nice graphic printed on the tray (above).

It seems the American Licorice Company had a contest a few/three years ago and I had one with the winner of second place, the 13-18 year old division, Kelsey C. (who got the credit on the printed art).

A confusing return

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

Last month, we made changes to the comics and puzzles you see in the Wisconsin State Journal, while adding more comics and other features to Madison.com. As expected, many of you wrote or called us to tell us about the features you missed.

We were listening. And we make some changes.

Starting Monday, your journal will have an extra half-page of bonus puzzles, including Cryptoquote, Super Quiz and an extra crossword puzzle, Monday through Saturday.

So at least one Lee Enterprise newspaper has bowed to the demands of its readers and will now publish a full page of riddles in its weekday editions. There has been no information about a more satisfying comics page. We note that CryptoQuote (KFS) and Super Quiz (NAS) are not part of the Tribune Content stable which has become the default puzzle provider for all Lee newspapers.

The cute

Forget Truss and Sunak, Britain’s Big News is a newly revealed, never-before-published comic book starring Sir Paul McCartney.

From the BBC:

An unpublished comic strip featuring Sir Paul McCartney has been exhibited in a museum.

In 1963 – shortly after the release of the Beatles’ first single – the musician said his dream was to appear in The Dandy.

The half-finished storyboard, created by the designer Nigel Parkinsonwas exhibited at the Liverpool Beatles Museum.

The tape also references some of his famous lyrics, from songs such as A Hard Day’s Night, Ticket to Ride and I Want To Hold Your Hand.

Although those songs in the caption at the bottom of the penultimate panel are Lennon.
The new song referred to is Coming Up, released in 1980.

It’s a hollow Halloween without the big pumpkin

[P]Public outrage ensued when “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and Peanuts’ other holiday specials were moved to AppleTV+ as part of a corporate deal in 2020, marking the first times that it would not air on public television since its debut more than 50 years ago. A sense of normalcy was achieved in 2021 when the special aired on PBS.

There was hope the special would stay on public television, but PBS said in a Sept. 29 tweet that it was barred from distributing Peanuts specials this year.

USA Today tells us how we can watch all the Peanuts classics this holiday season.
