Six Chix, for those who missed earlier explanations, is a daily comic strip where six different woman cartoonists each do one strip a week, and one out of every six Sunday editions. Benita Epstein is one who rarely contributes avian-related content, but one year ago today, she did:
Lenore the raven makes a season-appropriate appearance in this On The Fastrack Sunday entry from June 2 of last year.
Stupid the Bird tries to teach Lunchbox to fetch, with disastrous results, in this Diamond Lil Sunday comic from June 5, 2016:
Haven't had a Frank and Ernest strip in a while, so here's one from one year ago today:
Speed Bump with the flip side of that famous fairy tale ...
Rhymes With Orange from one year ago. If it were Poe, the parrot would be saying "Nevermore".
And one concluding 1967 Peanuts strip with Linus and the birds:
Linus and the birds in part two of our 1967 Peanuts series:
Over the weekend, three strips from a May 1967 Peanuts story arc in which Linus shows kindness to birds and gets a nice, warm feeling from it. (No, these are not Woodstock, who had not made his appearance yet at the time of this strip, and who wasn't even named until 1970.)
We wrap up the month with a WuMo panel from three years ago yesterday.
This isn't the end of May toons, though ... I have a set of three old Peanuts strips that will start off June with a nice, warm feeling. Stay tuned!
