This coming Friday is Friday the 13th-- a day with lots of superstitious meaning, whether it be lucky or unlucky, for lots of people. Way to start the new year off, right???
I asked our cartoonists, in the spirit of the day, to share their bad luck stories and comics with us!
Alex Hallatt, Arctic Circle:
I think you make your own luck, but there's nothing wrong with a few superstitions, unless...
Bill Griffith, Zippy the Pinhead:
In Zippy's hometpwn of Dingburg, whose motto is: " Going Too Far is Half the Pleasure of Not Getting Anywhere", bad luck can always be removed quickly with a little light vacuuming.
Apologies to legendary bluesman Albert King.
Bill Holbrook, Kevin & Kell, On the Fastrack, and Safe Havens:
The Fastrack Crew knows that bad luck can hit us differently in cyberspace!
Ron Ferdinand, Dennis the Menace:
I don’t know if this panel originally fell on a Friday in 1959, but if it didn’t, it SHOULD have.
John Rose, Barney Google & Snuffy Smith:
Snuffy and Lukey have always been unlucky when it comes to finding work. But, truth be told, that's the way they like it!
