Deflocked (12/8/08)


I’m a big fan of strips that fully define their characters within three or four panels. Thanks to some sharp characterization and compelling comflict, this installment of Deflocked tells us everything we need to know about both the dog and the sheep. And while their relationship seems to be a carbon copy of the one that Pig and Rat enjoy in Pearls Before Swine, this strip does benefit from some nice writing. I’m particularly fond of the “big sunny blooms of joy and prosperity” that the dog hopes to spread across the land.
