Yet another genius comic strip. Any more Strauss/Mahler ones coming up?

Elaine Fine said...

How about The Rest are Dogs? Go Moe! Bravo Matthew!

I totally agree, and I haven't even read the book yet, and I'm a cat person besides.

Echoing chantal, your comic strips/graphic tales really are extraordinary.

I think Moe is wrong there, as I think Britten was a dog person, he had a beloved dog named Clydie for many years. Moe doesn't have an agenda, does he? :-)

Looking forward to the next installment of Mahler/Strauss, though it's going to be hard to top them as the dudes from Easy Rider! :-)

Henry: Moe is no doubt incensed by the undue prominence given to Geoffrey the cat in "Rejoice in the Lamb," especially given the canine presence in Smart's poem:

For I pray to be accepted as a dog without offence, which is best of all.
