Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for October 03, 1998
TEDDY: Drawing cartoons? NATE: Not cartoons! Graphic novels! My skills have grown beyond the comic strip! I can tell more sophisticated stories in a longer multi page format! TEDDY: "Doctor Cesspool and the Temple of Blood." Wow. That does sound sophisticated. NATE: Plus, "Temple of Blood" sounds better than "Really Bad Head Injury!"
