Reading The La Times On New Year’s Eve

I read the LA Times during lunch today and found this tribute cartoon by Gary Varvel in the Editorial pages. The LA Times printed it in black & white, but I found it online in color for you. It’s a nice piece, but does anyone else find it odd to see Johnny Bravo standing in there?Meanwhile, over in the LA Times Book Review section, Ed Park reviews Fantagraphics excellent POPEYE comic strip compilation book, I Yam What I Yam, Vol.1. A little late for Christmas, but it’s great to see Popeye (in any form) receiving some recognition in a major newspaper.
