Get Fuzzy (12/31/09)

Most days, I think Get Fuzzy fails to live up to the promise of its early years, when Bucky Katt, Satchel Pooch, and Rob Wilco were the most interesting characters on the comics page. Over time, I’ve become frustrated with the strip’s rambling dialogue and seeming lack of ambition. But every once in a while, I see something that reminds me of why I loved Get Fuzzy in the first place. The fourth panel of today’s strip is a shining example, with its hilarious depiction of Rob groaning from the pain of a headache. It’s the kind of expressive artwork that used to set the strip apart from its contemporaries but has practically vanished over the past few years.
