I love bad movies. Not “I never really connected with the main character” bad, but “I can see the wires on the paper plate UFO” bad. (Check out the pics of my office. I, like the 40 year old virgin, actually have a framed “MST3K:The Movie” poster on my wall.)
So it’s no wonder I also love bad comics. And there’s plenty over at Stupid Comics. Here’s just a small sampling (click to enlarge)…

Today I’m coloring a greeting card while watching Star Wars, keeping track of my email and reading some blogs.

It’s attention to detail like this that makes Spot the Frog stand out from the vast wasteland of same-old-same-old strips…
Frogs are cold-blooded. That means they can’t swallow snowflakes without first making sure they melt on their tongue. Otherwise the snowflakes pack into the stomach and form a ball.

I just picked up an almost perfect copy of The Art of Cartooning (1975). The listing on Amazon mentioned several artists had signed the inside cover, but didn’t give any names. Imagine my surprise to find the following:
I think the Gahan Wilson is my favorite, but the Ziegler is a close second.
It looks like this book was purchased at some sort of signing on 5/1/76 by Barbara someone.
Anyway, it was already one of my favorite books of/on gag cartoons, and this particular copy now has a special place on my new shelves.
