Listening to Sammy and Carmen
...While recovering from having had 67 people in my house and retrofitted garage for Thanksgiving dinner 2012.
In addition to those considerable consolations: the Zen Buddhism of Milt Caniff comic strip panels.
Above: ([left, rear:] Convoy, the innocent-but-not-so-dumb stowaway, and [center, front] Madame Captain Shark, opening a safe belowdecks on a submarine disguised as a freighter:) In panel #2 of 3 in the Steve Canyon daily strip that ran on Friday, August 13, 1948. Marvel at the manipulation of line weight, use of black shape, control of emphasis and spatial clarity in that single frame. C'est magnifique!
