Saturday’s Freshly Squeezed

This is the last of this week’s series in which Nate worries about the weather and climate change. It’s probably as political as I’m going to get with what is generally a family-oriented comic strip. I’m still surprised by the vehemence of the responses I get when people comment on the GoComics.com website. As an editorial cartoonist I was used to a readership that accepted that they’d read things in the newspaper they disagreed with; comics readers are a different breed; they love you or hate you.

Today’s Freshly Squeezed

Okay, so my editorializing occasionally creeps into my comic strip. So sue me. This week’s series is in part a recollection of how much the news affected my kids when they were young. Probably because I worked for a newspaper, they were exposed to more hard news at a young age than most, and it sometimes deeply affected them. Not having the seasoned perspective of an adult, stories about war, suicide bombings, school shootings and human-caused disasters (and I include climate change) terrified them. In other words, they were a whole lot more sane than the grownups.

I’m back after a few weeks off. Now I have to figure out how to pay for the vacation. We did just pay off the last of our kids’ student loans, though, so it’s almost like getting a raise. Poor Sam and Liz are on the other end of the long march.

The thing I worry most about when I teach a class in cartooning, which I do on occasion, is that I’m boring my students. I thought I’d play this one out from the students’ point of view. Maybe boring isn’t the worst thing, after all. For the full series, go to GoComics.com.
