"Slugging Sluggo and the L.B.C."

Apparently, Beetle Bailey is not the only oldoldoldold school comic strip which has featured some questionable violence lately. Apparently Nancy is guilty of an act of “domestic violence” against Sluggo. This blogger has questions, but apparently misses the first, which is “Is somebody still doing a Nancy and Sluggo comic strip?”

And I may have an explanation for all the modern-day references in “B.C.” It came from a strip where one of the characters is reading about “Basketball Legend Shaq Oneal” (which leads to a bad pun about leg-ends). Normally, sports “legends” are not really labelled such until after their careers have ended, which made me think: Maybe these characters exist not in the past, but in the future… a Post-Apocalyptic future where the world has been bombed into the stone age, and, keeping with Johnny Hart’s sometimes confusing Christian beliefs, these cave-folk are actually the people Left Behind from the Rapture! I think that interpretation would help explain a lot of Hart’s weirder strips…

    […] Before I do anything else, let me openly admit that my seemingly groundbreaking theory about the B.C. comic strip turns out to be very similar to a concept Mr. Marciuliano had explored in Medium Large last November. But then, I was in the middle of moving from North Hollywood to San Luis Obispo at the time and can not properly remember ANYTHING from those few weeks. […]
