* * * WISH FOR MY BOOK! (Nukees:d/dx), not selling at Plan 9! * * *
Today, we present the first of three HONORABLE
Sylvan Migdal did a very good job with one of the few entries that
picked a more
(Seems most were obssessed with my older, more embarrassingly drawn strips).
Great job with Teri and the clouds, methinks.
Sylvan used to draw a strip called Spork (presumably not to be confused with Sporkman), but now seems to have
switched to A God's Life.

strike> day retrospectacle.
Spring '97: All unanimously agree that the best strip ever is #5, predicting "migrant engineering labor" in 2001. Thus, Nukees reaches its peak in its second week and begins its downhill decline.
Employer: Okay, I need two Ph.D's and a master's of science for one day of Fortran coding!
Fall '97: Gav invents a "virtual pet," Teri, which gets lost on the Internet, threatening the destruction of civilization. Yes, THAT tired old plotline....
Teri: "Anything is better than living in a calculator."
Spring '98: Danny invents a 20-ton robot ant, which Gav promptly steals, thus setting the comfortable, wacky rut in which all subsequent strips would languish.
Suzy Gee: Maybe Danny could help you.
Gav: That layabout? Get serious, Suzy!
Ma'at: Fall '98: Teri takes over the ant and attacks Gav. Hilarity ensues. Who didn't see THAT coming?
Darren: Do we have a PROBLEM wi--
Ma'at: ... with my residuals? Glad you brought it up!
Darren: Nevermind. Carry on.
