Okay, bad analogy. But hey, one of my favorite comics, “Tree”, is ending. This one had such a funny premise. At first I thought it would be just a gimmick. Not so. This strip had a lot of what you strive for as a cartoonist: characters that jumped to life and make you laugh. My favorite kind of comic is one where as you read it, the panel lines fade and everything seems to play out like your favorite sitcom. Tree was a great show.
That said, every cartoonist has to deal with killing their darlings. It’s hard. It’s evolution for cartoonists. Judging by “Tree”, I ‘m very excited to see what Scott comes up with next.
