Good Daily Comic: “Ink Pen” by Phil Dunlap

I thought today’s Ink Pen strip would be of interest to readers of this blog, because of the “The Hooded (Wo)Man” on book covers debate.


[Should en-biggen if you click on it…]

Ink Pen is one of my favourite daily comic strips (there are quite a few that I read, now…). For those of you unfamiliar with it, here’s the “official” description:

Ink Pen: the insider’s look at the seedy underbelly of cartoon character employment. Find out what happened to loveable Bixby the Rat! Witness the struggles of Ham Hock, the talking pig, as he tries to break into a business that sees him as nothing more than a slab of meat. Meet (briefly) the plucky sidekicks, thrust into danger by careless superheroes and the villains they duel.

If you have any interest in comics and super-heroes, then I’d recommend this satirical look at its tropes. I subscribe to Ink Pen through GoComics.
