    My WAG is that some artist or lawyer associated with one of the strips raised a stink (my guess would be B.C.’s). Parody is fair use…

    ^ And yet GoComics will still sell you a Framed Collectible Print of it!.I sure hope Petey doesn’t come outside and see that. The poor boy has enough phobias already!!!

    To see the strip here, all you have to do is go to the Buy This Strip page, and then enlarge the image.

    One of the strips parodied is a King Feature. I suspect rival syndicate lawyers. Thanx, f-c.

    This isn’t the only strip to visit <Cul de Sac today. Rhymes With Orange did a crossover, too.

    Today’s is a good one, and it’s well worth following one of the links above to read. The parody of B.C. was well done, but I don’t recognize what’s being parodied by “Nothing New”. Can anyone fill me in?

    I think the third strip is “Dustin”, but it’s hard to tell.

    Interestingly, it showed up twice in my e-mail. The first time, it was in a vertical format, but squished, and then right below that, it was in the 4 panel layout linked above.I also got two copies of The Argyle Sweater, and unlike the two layouts for Lio, both were exactly the same.Very weird.

    Funny thing, that “Cul De Sac’s” title isn’t changed but the other two are, don’cha think?

    I got the Lio at GoComics in my e-mail today. I guess some people just can’t take a well-observed joke.

    This is not the first time Lio has attacked BC and other comics. You’d think a one gag comic would learn not to throw stones.

    Though I can understand a comic that loves vampires, zombies, ghosts, monsters, etc. might be uncomfortable with a strip a Christian view.

    I’d guess it’s not the “fair use” issue, it’s the “we don’t want the Christian right coming down on us” issue. Which is a shame.

    It turned up in my Inbox. . You gotta find it – its egregious, dire and very. Plays w/ Cul de Sac and makes wicked fun of Blondie and B.C.

    It’s frustrating, because I believe that he’s using Cul de Sac for the fundraising that Rhymes with Orange also did.

    Thanks for your patience, all. Was indeed a loading error on our part. Though there were a few other theories about its absence as well… – Lucas Wetzel, Universal Uclick

    Would have been a great strip without Cul-de-suck.

    nice cross over. Boy, if her brother showed up he’d be in therapy for decades. Not just a wasp on a straw this time.

    I never heard of ‘Cul-de-Sac’… & what strip is ‘Nothing New’ making fun of?

    I agree, “Nothing New” is a takeoff on “Dustin”, but Mark has screwed up by drawing the characters better than the originals – well, actually the dad looks kind of like Scary Gary…

    Zing! Loved the self-referential humor on panel #2 from the last time the Jesoids got miffed here in the comments when you made reference to B.C.’s uber-religiosity at times. These sorts of strips are good in moderation; their rarity makes them all the more welcome when they do appear.

    I love the parody of ‘Dustin,’ that comic is so terrible! It replaced ‘My Cage’ after they got canceled. They obviously tried to target the twenty something crowd and only ‘My Cage’ succeeded
