Go to the Big Contest sometime Sunday morning Eastern Time. I’ll post the winners, assuming I can figure it out.
Ok, this is important if you are interested in getting a strip which I’ve already archived. If you have a favorite strip from the past, and I don’t have it personally, it may be in the Archive at Ohio State U. Let me know the date or a description with the approximate year it appeared, and whether it was a daily or a Sunday. If it’s at the OSU Cartoon Archives, I’ll get it. Not all of them are there. Over the years many have gone to various people, and I gave a bunch of strips to an archive at the University of Lund in Malmö, Sweden. I can get the ones from OSU, but I can’t do that every time I get a request. I’ll wait till I get a bunch of requests and I’ll do it twice a year. First time will be in June when I get back from my trip. So if you asked for something in the past, and I told you that I didn’t have it, please ask me again.
