Sometimes the burden of abstract facts can landslide into philosophies of ideas that conclude into statements of futility. Isn’t that a riot? Here are some random quotes from my sketchbooks starring this weary fellow named Dead Sea Dave. Unfortunately, I don’t have sources for the first three panels. They were quickly scribbled from books or taped lectures. I won’t take credit for them (only credit for arranging the quotes and designing the comic strip). If anyone out there knows the source of the third panel quote please feel free to leave me a comment. The last panel is Kierkegaard – hence the “no shit.”
Order “The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood” the omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
