"Look, Ma, No Exclamation Points!"

One can point out the rolling hill-lines that give the strip continuity, the self-defeating title, the way the flower on the shirt in panel one becomes material in panel two—but the magic of this strip is simple, and therefore harder to parse. That is to say, fifteen years later, it can still put a big smile on the unsuspecting reader's face.

From The Yale Herald, April 13, 1991 (Vol. IX, issue 11)
