"That's Right, FM Doesn't Draw the Fucking Thing at All!


When you have a moment check out the funny, furious little article on the supposed "Fall of Faye" (or is that "Faye of Fall"?), courtesy of Righteous Dudes and Cats with 'Tudes.

Also, take special note of the very "old school" Sally Forth above (courtesy of same web site, click on to enlarge) in which Hil appears to be a towheaded homunculus, Sally is inflicted with achondroplasia and both adorable dwarves are just a missing panel away from being hurled down the length of a bar thanks to some Cooper's-swilling Aussies.

Oh, and note to the site: Craig MacIntosh illustrates Sally Forth. That's his signature ("MAC") featured at the bottom of the daily strips.

Huh, he's ... he's kind of right about Faye being suddenly ethnic in that strip. What's the deal with that? Was spray-on tanner also part of her bid to get in with the in crowd?

Also, that vision of Original Hillary -- with her stunningly huge head, tiny torso, and sausage-like thighs -- will haunt my dreams tonight. And probably every night thereafter until I die.

How funny that Faye appears to have dark skin in the Oakland Tribune, while just a few miles away in the Contra Costa (Walnut Creek, CA) Times, she's white. Is this some kind of new demographic offering? Who's next: Black Blondie? Hispanic Hi & Lois?

So how exactly does the strip creation process work when one person does the dialog and another does the art? Does the writer tell the artist where the dialog is supposed to be taking place? How are visual gags planned out?

I do remember the days when MAC had to have his hands painfully crushed in a vise to draw as bad as Howard, but I never remember the art being THAT bad.

It's either total memory repression or too many drugs in junior high.
