NEW COMIC MONDAY: Badlands by Steve McGary
About the Strip:
Having debuted in 1988 in the short-lived British daily, The Post, Steve McGarry’s western spoof strip “Badlands” was snapped up the following year by The Sun, Britain’s best-selling newspaper. The silly and saucy antics of Marshal Mask and his motley mob of maladjusted misfits were an immediate hit with the paper’s 7.5 million readers. During its 12-year run in The Sun, Badlands spawned two best-selling book collections in the UK.

This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: Basic Instructions by Scott Meyer.
This pick comes from our Associate Editor, Kendra Phipps. Click to read more about why Kendra loves this comic so much.
Help us welcome Nothing is not Something by Greg Wallace to GoComics!
About the strip:
This comic strip is a view of the world as seen through the dirty glasses of a boy named Wally. He’s a bit of a loner, a bit of a daydreamer and he has a bit of an attitude. Armed with his trusty pen, he fills his sketchbooks with scribbles and doodles forming a potpourri of ideas he entitles “Nothing is not Something.” With this collection, he hopes one day to become a world-famous artist, or at the very least, a cartoonist, the drunken-uncle of the art world.
At this point, “Nothing is not Something” does not appear in any newspapers, in any city, in any country, on any planet, in any universe. That’s because Wally doesn’t want to be “owned” by “The Man.” That’s his story and he’s sticking to it.
This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: The Fusco Brothers
This pick comes from our Assistant Managing Editor, Clint Hooker: There are many reasons I count The Fusco Brothers as one of my favorite comics, not the least of which is that creator J.C. Duffy submits his work consistently ahead of deadlines. I also like the strips’ appearance, which is generally a horizontal single panel for dailies. In a world of shrinking comics pages, The Fusco Brothers holds up well. And Duffy’s writing strength is in producing gags that don’t feel like gags, even in limited space. His jokes develop quickly without feeling hurried, and are concluded with masterful payoffs. But beyond the aesthetics and deadlines, Duffy has endowed his titular characters with a humor that is right up my alley. Many of the gags are things we would like to say, but rarely have the courage (or is it the good sense?) to utter to another human being. Whether they’re pickup lines at happy hour, a therapy session or even in front of a judge, The Fusco Brothers holds nothing back.
NEW COMIC MONDAY!
Help us welcome McArroni by Julian Loayza and Carmen Pérez! Click here to view on GoComics.
About the strip:
McArroni is about a slightly fat bird and his eccentric friend, Amadeo. Both are going to have amazing adventures in this dialogue-free format strip, not always finding the easiest way to solve problems. McArroni is in love with Anis but she doesn’t seem to be too enthusiastic about it. As a hobby, McArroni and Amadeo will try once in a while to kill a shy and peaceful cat. Sometimes they are even cute characters.
Happy National Boss Day.

This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: Luann
This pick comes from our International Sales Administrator, Kelly Kranz: Luann is one of my favorite comic strips and always makes me laugh. I think that everyone can relate to Luann thinking back to their own adolescence years growing up and get a good laugh. The relationship between Luann and Tiffany is always entertaining. I think we’ve all known a Tiffany in our own lives! I think it’s a great strip for readers of all ages, young and old! Enjoy.
We launched a new web comic this morning, please join us in welcoming Foolish Mortals by Tom Horcek.
About Foolish Mortals:
Tom Horacek’s Foolish Mortals is a beautifully drawn look into a bleak, funny world. The art is precise and crisply realized. His characters convey emotion with the twist of a line, and his writing is elegantly witty. You may not want to identify with some of his unfortunate creations, but you are sure to enjoy their adventures.
