Martin, Dale – Watusi the Talking Dog #23
Watusi the Talking Dog #23
Wow, there’s been a slight gap in coverage of this book over the years, wouldn’t you say?Â I’m instantly impressed when a book gets as high as #23, even if, in this case, Dale is more of a ringleader than the sole force responsible for putting the book out.Â OK, he is the one who does that, but his main job is to get people to finish their panels and get everything back to him.Â All of these are four panel strips, Dale always has one panel (usually the first one to get the ball rolling), and in this issue Tom Cherry gets the last panel.Â In between you get Mark Morehouse, Larned Justin, Chris Garrett, Jennifer Hachigan, Michael A. Carroll, Matthew Corrigan, Dan Lauer, Keith O’Brien, David McGhee, Drew Boynton, Steve Willhite, Greg Gildersleeve, Owen Egan, Ryan Curran and Joyce Curran.Â Topics in here include inventions, China, late night, time travel, a barking contest, the lottery, Watusi’s sister, aliens, a flood, and health food.Â Tom only goes to the “it was all just a dream” well once, which is good, but overall this thing is more than a little uneven.Â Hey, it’s a jam comic, I think it’s supposed to be uneven.Â There are a few funny moments, even more unfunny moments, and a whole lot of confusion in between.Â Still, what Dale is doing here is admirable, and some of you artist types reading this should try putting together your own Watusi strips with a couple of your friends and see what happens.Â I doubt that it’s as easy as it looks… $1
