In which Inkwell complains about things that are not Slylock

Slylock Fox – January 13th, 2013

Sometimes I wish I could’ve been one of this strip’s famed Kid Cartoonists. It must be exhilarating, opening up the newspaper and seeing not just any stick figure, but your stick figure! As it sits there, all deceased and hungry and stickish, you realize that it’s actually more detailed than most of the funnies page (sans Slylock).

And then you cry.

Doodles – January 13th, 2013

Week two of Doodles’ new art. I fired off an email to the syndicate and asked if it was permanent, but Yahoo ate their reply. This week, the top panel and bottom row look like they’re by completely different artists. Panel one is full of little details, right down to the scales on Sammy’s wonky-faced dragon. Doodle Zoo, on the other hand, doesn’t even depict the fur hanging off of Bosco’s ears.

Speaking of which, what’s up with Doodle Zoo? It’s supposed to be cringe-inducing riddles along the lines of “What do you get when you cross a cat with a flowering tree? A pussy willow!” with an accompanying illustration of an unnatural cat/tree hybrid, silently pleading for the pain to end.

I do not like this new, child-friendly version.
