Now look at that :)
there was a 4th one an hour ago? or is my memory slipping? Oh well, great prank!
I don’t know what’s making me giggle so uncontrollably, the actual jokes (which are indeed cute) or the eerie symmetry of the pacing and structure between each strip!
These are great, though! The effect is so different from your usual more expansive format, but Cat & Girl translates very well to the condensed version.
Man, I can’t wait ’til you have enough of these to fill a whole book.
And a Sunday color supplement!!
Perhaps by this time next year?
If I ever become comics editor of the Arizona Daily Wildcat, Cat & Girl will be in the newspaper.
If only for a semester.
What, no “Gambrell” signature?
You’re a clever clever girl, Dorothy.
Well done, chief.
I like how Cat gets more rattled with each punchline. HE CAN’T TAKE ANY MORE OF THIS ROUTINE!
What newspaper(s)?! WHAT NEWSPAPER(S)?!! I only ask because You Rock! …and I have a little “problem” with newsprint…
Strip seven is just a photocopy of Garfield.
Mok, check the date. :)
I love Cat’s increasing distress (displeasure?) in each strip.
had me going right up until the comments. well played….
That was my reaction to this slew of comics. No joke. So much sardonic wit… I LOVE IT!
I would like to see a silent penultimate panel. That would really bring this home.
Hee hee hee! LOVE IT!
Add a plop take at the end, and you could get syndicated on bubble gum wrappers too!
I didn’t actually think it was an April Fools joke, nor did I think it was authentic… I just assumed it was some clever playing with the medium, like the low quality JPEG at the end of ‘Obsolete’.
In fact, I still suspect this is the case, despite the evidence of the timing. I guess I can’t just assume everything in the world it an April Fools joke just because it happens to fall on the 1st of Apri and doesn’t fit in with the norm.
Awesome awesome awesome.
Courier life! Little shout out to a Fox-owned piece of Brooklyn, there.
Yes! I want to see it in color on Sunday!
Am I the only one who thinks the bottom two aren’t funny?
I’m sorry, I had to say it.
Its about how we put our faith in things, yes Cat And Girl are often “not funny” but they are “irony”.
Check out Procol Harum’s “All Our Dreams Are Sold.” or Pink Floyds’s “Brain Damage”.
You are what you are exposed to, so choose well.
The actual irony would be if Dorothy got onto a real comics page and then the paper newspaper folded.
(For that terrible thought I will donate on the paypal button.)
I just thought it was a parody of newspaper funnies and the way mentioning new technology is considered a valid punchline.

The U.N. Gave The polio to Africans. Live polio. With a vaccine. I’m pretty sure they admit this.

Everyone except CPFace:
“You need to look up ‘satire’ in the dictionary.”
“I don’t have a dictionary!”
“Then get one!”
“But where can I find a dictionary?”
And the moral of the story is… handmade sweaters are warm and cozy, not like garbage from chinese flea market.
