    I don’t mind the occasional sideways panel. The artist needs the latitude to work with gags that can’t be framed in a panel-by-panel framework. The limitations of the form is one of the reasons we no longer have Calvin and Hobbes or Bloom County. Of course, Charles Schulz developed Peanuts to work within a strict format of four identically-sized panels (so the editors could arrange the strip vertically, horizontally, or in a box, depending on the space available).

    I also appreciate anytime Stantis works the Coyote-Tries-To-Fly angle into Prickly City. It’s a theme right out of Native American Coyote myths.

    Thank you, Fritzoid, for explaining this panel. Being new to the City I wasn’t sure what was going on. NOW it’s funny. I’m glad to see there’s a first responder available.
