A Serial Cartoon That Stayed in Place

Comic strips frequently amuse me. The stories, the less-than-subtle punch lines. They do their job well.

I tend to prefer mulit-paneled strips, ones that involve a set of panel to complete the story, to one shots. I guess I like that build-up

Imagine my surprise the other day when I read this recent Luann strip. The entire strip, all three panels, take place at the exact same time, just in different spaces. Granted, this is how real life works, but comic strips aren’t real life.

It really caught my attention, and I gave thought to printing it off and putting it on a bulletin board, just so I could stare at it and go, “Whoa!”
