Sometimes you just want to see what something looks like. I’ve had this comic strip in my sketchbook for a while in a different form (originally I had Creep Rat sliding on butter down a sidewalk with a sharp knife). But the butter knife made me laugh and then the gag came to me.
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).
