Guest strip week continues and concludes today with Mr. Thomas Clemmons (Robot Friday) lending his talent to TOACM--though you may remember seeing Thomas' Fan-Art Friday entry back on April 15th.

I really dig Thomas' artwork...his lines are crisp and expressive and the set-up and execution of this strip is just darn funny IMHO. Poor Joey...but I suppose he gets what he deserves...

Comics are so cool in that they utilize both visual imagery and the written word in the storytelling process. This balance is not always equal. Some comics may rely more on text and others on the images one day and do the complete opposite the next. One of the things I love so much about this strip in particular is its reliance on the images to carry the strip with the text only serving to deliver the punchline to an otherwise entirely visual gag. Ah, the magic of comics!

I'd like to thank both Thomas here and Philip (who gave us Tuesday's guest strip) for their outstanding work! Bravo gentlemen!

Next Tuesday we begin a brand new chapter in the Tales of a Checkered Man! Stay tuned! Look for the new title card to post this weekend on Sunday July 10th! Until then my friends...
