Mother Goose and Grimm, 7/21/21

Good news, everyone! Like Dennis the Menace, Grimm, the lovable dog from the syndicated comic strip Mother Goose and Grimm, is about to get what he deservers (incarceration in a federal prison).

Ha ha, just kidding, of course. Dennis remains at large, and in fact his little road trip with the Wilsons is about to come to an end. The adorable tyke is being delivered safe and sound back to his family, who have finally enjoyed enough Dennis-free days to be able to deal with him again. Remember, it takes a village to avoid your child!

Oh, do you use a scrap of cloth or paper to ensure that you don’t soil yourself and clothes? Well why don’t you go back to communist Europe, you effeminiate weirdo

Dick Tracy, 7/15/21

Oh, did I tell you about the Dick Tracy plot where Mysta Chimera was working with Vera Alldid, a cartoonist who does an in-universe comic strip called J. Straightedge Trustworthy that’s clearly based on/parodying Dick Tracy’s life, and Mysta was supposed to be promoting some cartoon thing but also Vera was sexually harassing her nonstop, but now they’ve both been kidnapped by some guy with a magic science ring that suppresses Mysta’s powers? Well, if I didn’t, I guess I just did in that previous sentence, so here we are! Anyway, I just want to point out that only when he learned his comic is in reruns now did Alldid truly break down into despair, which maybe says a little too much about the comic artist mindset. They’ve been running reruns of Crock for literally years and nobody seems to notice! You think they’re ever going to pay Vera again if this goes on for too long?

Hmm, it looks like Dennis’s mysterious road trip with the Wilsons is still ongoing! Mr. Wilson is, of course, scouring the local paper to make sure no reports of a missing young boy have reached this town, far away from the leafy suburb where the Mitchells and Wilsons live. (Obviously no such reports have made it into the paper, because Henry and Alice have absolutely not bothered to tell anybody their child is missing.)

It looks like Ashlee is really learning some important lessons here. Physical objects, like watches, can have emotional resonance for their owners, which makes you feel bad about stealing them. But money? Money’s totally fungible. Who’s gonna care about money? Ashlee’s about to grift Drew out of a bunch of money, is my point.

I like that this panel sets up a fun little mystery (why is Dennis being driven somewhere by the Wilsons?) and then immediately solves it (they’re taking him to prison, where he’ll pay for his many crimes).

“Hey, you know how our baby loves staring directly into the sun? Well, I know you said we shouldn’t just let her spend hours crawling around on the floor next to the giant picture window without any supervision, but hear me out on this better idea I just came up with.”
