With the help of friends, Mary Frances was able to come to her life goal. Click the strip for a detailed explanation.
Here’s to the last day of International Women’s Month. Deanna has been listening to Nina Simone lately:
…and it reminds me of a snippet of an interview I saw of her on French T.V. where she said she was still unhappy about not being admitted to classical music school because of her race. It breaks my heart and also makes me admire her more – she couldn’t pursue her dream, so she made other music that (among other things) spoke out against racism and helped others.
This is your last chance to own an original Sylvia cartoon! Yes, shameless self-promotion.
But, on April 15 I am donating all my originals strips. If you ever thought you would like to own the original black and white artwork of a Sylvia strip, now is the time.
Tell me what you’re interested in and I will send you scans of three strips that fit the bill from which you can choose. Please note, these are original strips… they are messy and have things written on them and in general bear the mark of having been handmade by a less than neat person (i.e., me). And they are big!
The originals are $250 each. They will be signed and dated. I can be reached via email at “nicolehollander at me dot com” and strips can be ordered until the middle of April. I am also able to offer “artist’s proofs” of Sunday color comics – color copies sent back to me before publishing. Sunday color artist proofs are available for $100 each.
Please pass this information along to anyone on your mailing list who might be a fan of Sylvia.
An excellent mentioning of a Sylvia character. Sara Stewart is on the money with this comparison.
Zombies always win. It’s true. For days nothing but the mysterious disappearance of the plane was all that there was on the news, and of course there was no real information. We heard from a lot of guys who are specialists in missing planes. I thought about Liam Neeson in Non-Stop, and then I watched a French zombie series. (Yes, everything sounds better in French.) I’m sure the American Resurrection series is not where nearly as good because we speak the language.
Here’s my question: Do zombies normally have so much sex, or only French zombies?

More sets of unlikely couples. Is there no end to this?
Actually I’m happy there isn’t. My very favorite is “nothing going on here, just keep on movie.”
