Quote Of The Week
"Rowe (who, by the way, is a cartoonist's dream in his own right, being very tall and lampost-slender and golliwog-haired) loves to give people lots to look at in his cartoons because he's sure that people really do 'pore over' and fossick in cartoons when they're given lots to look for." -- Ian Warden
