    Your strip just keeps getting better and better. I’ve read it all through the years, and admit it, it was a rough start. Great then, but now polished. I sure wish you hadn’t stopped coming out with books (I have them all, the early ones autographed). But at least I can still get a daily read, and I save some off. It’s just laborious to reread, and I can’t share your best more recent work with others by loaning them a book, the way I’m able to with other strips. Thanks for what you continue to do so well.

    This is great. The Best. I sure you wish you’d come out with another book – it’s been a long time. This episode deserves a book. I’ve got all your others. My eyeballs are tickling.

    I share Robin’s perplexity. I was really enjoying the pre-marital flashback sequence, and then suddenly it (apparently) ended. Who are these people, where did they come from, and where did the continuity go? & love Arlo & Janis, and the gags are good, but I must say I like the continuities better.

    I love this strip, and have the books. I’ve been waiting a Looooooong time for another book to come out. PLEASE.

    Especially good art today. Your story lines are engaging too, but clean expressive lines, with balanced backgrounds, are a very large part of why I read your strip. I was similarly impressed with today’s vintage Hi & Lois. Art matters. There’s comic strip, and then there’s comic art, and you have the latter. Thank you.

    Do I understand correctly? Ten Cats Financial is a business with money or assets to lend, but can’t put another business together so they have food to eat? I’m enjoying the strip a lot, but hope these two continuity streams come together somehow.

    This great strip prompts me to write what’s been on my mind anyway. I read your strip daily and enjoy it. I read lots of strips and save off ones I like, doing a “best of” toon email to a number of people weekly. Many strips I enjoy here and there, but your I enjoy consistently. Nevertheless, I rarely save them. The continuity, I guess, makes it all or nothing. But the sequence in today’s strip represents the exception. I have often saved out the “romance” strips. I have enjoyed this theme particularly, and she is a toon easy on the eyes (my wife didn’t like it when I saved Jessica Rabbit toons, but Toni is OK). From that preface to my point. You do book reprints, which I do appreciate, but they are usually annuals complete. The build up of this romance and relationship has been interspersed with unrelated themes and gags, which has diluted the storyline. I wish you would consider, at some point, putting out a reprint book with solely this story. I’d buy multiple copies and give them out. Thanks for what you do.

    Just to let you know … I printed today’s & yesterday’s strips on either side of some cardstock to make a bookmark for a friend of mine who always gets jigsaw puzzles for Christmas. I think you have a great strip, and wish it could be commercialized more. I wrote you not long ago about reprint books, and you said it wasn’t commercially feasible. I recently bought the latest Beardo book, and honestly, if Dougherty can do it, I don’t get why you can’t, even if you had a bad experience once. Thanks for the strip, in any case.

    I understand the lady being pulled left, toward the closet, the window curtains, the tipped plant, and maybe the dog outside on a leash (with no collar?). But the closet door NOT being pulled shut, and the guy being pulled OUT the front door? Does this black hope repel some things/people?

    September 18th happens to be my wife’s (Linda’s) birthday. Good timing guys. I printed a large copy for her with the note: “They’re talking about you!” and used it as the card for my gift. Thanks very much. And although I doubt I could afford it, I can’t refrain from asking – How much would it cost me to buy the original art, with a similar dedication?
