Speak softly and...

It's an interesting experience to get up, think you're cutting it close on time, and wind up arriving at work about an hour early.

Weird set-up for something about Richard Thompson's Cul de Sac comic strip. Then again, it's notable for its sense of almost-uncontrolled movement. Here's one of his three-panel gems translated into animated form.

So far no clips have turned up with Alice's angst-ridden older brother Petey. Ah well, Petey Otterloop, we do appreciate you.

Left to my own devices I'm quite sure I'd end up at work an hour late :-)

That was a strange little cartoon, wasn't it?

That's what I like about Cul de Sac. It's got a very different rhythm from the standard two panel setup, one panel punchling.

Well, one of the things I like about it.
