*LETTERS/EMAILS OF THE WEEK:
Re: VanGlourious K Chronicles
Cripes all mighty I can scarcely believe how much the salon commentsfolks lost their shit at your Vanglorious Nigras comic, when the movieit’s sending up is a critically acclaimed heralded whatever romp of murder.b-but those are *nazis!* Totally different situation there! *lives in a country built on centuries of blood and toil and slavery with a century of jim crow at the top*Anyway I’m sure you’re getting tons of sputtering ragemail today but Ijust wanted to let you know that was probably the funniest damned strip I’ve seen in a while. And I guess maybe let you know not all white guys are humorless ignorant fartlords.Okay sure most of us, are yeah. But. Uh. I forgot where I was going with this. COMIC GOOD.

re: Knight Life Comic strip about East Coast food
damn, your cartoon yesterday hit home. Whenever I head back to NYC, my culinary checklist includes: “real” pizzadunkin donuts (coffee and munchkins)”real” bagelsItalian ice (especially the very elusive orange flavor) and Papaya King hotdogs. Glad to see I’m not the only one with proudly retarded taste buds.

I just got back from my Boston trip. Was visiting my folks in Framingham, have been in SF for the last 30+ yrs, but my 1st stop from Logan was to the North End for Lobstah roll, then Regina’s for a pizza to go. Fried Clams the next day for lunch. Were you following me?

Hello-
I like your comic strip quite a bit and look forward to reading it daily in the Denver Post. I’ve never written a letter or email like this, but I figured that with any artistic pursuit it’s nice to get feedback from the audience. So here it is.A while back there was a Rudy Ray Moore reference in one of the strips—very nice. This and the general urban/ with-it feel of the strip seems to distinguish it from alot of the base drivel that they allow on the page. I appreciate the angle of your approach and the simplicity of the drawings. Also, the lack of comics syrup is welcome as well. Thanks for putting this comic out there. I’ll be looking forward to it daily, and am expecting more great simmering subversion and self-parody.
