State of the Art

Some guys are just funny.

Scott Hilburn’s single-panel comic strip, The Argyle Sweater, is very much in the tradition of The Far Side, but with a uniquely off-kilter view of the world all its own. Featuring anthropomorphic animals, cavemen, and Mr. Spock (as a writer of syndicated horoscopes), The Argyle Sweater has started to appear in an increasing number of newspapers (and through on-line services like GoComics) and generate some enthusiastic buzz.

About himself Hilburn says: “I live in the Dallas area. I have all my teeth. I can stand on one leg and whistle at the same time. I am a good spellar.”
