Rose Is Rose on Tolerance

One of my newly favorite comic strips, right up there with "Get Fuzzy" and "Foxtrot", is the often-surprising "Rose Is Rose". It was created by Pat Brady and features superb artwork and creative design. The story revolves around a delightful, gentle, loving family ... with a mother who sporadically turns into a tattooed leather-clad biker chick, a father with a fondness for rubenesque ladies, a cute idiosyncratic cat, and a tyke whose guardian angel occasionally looms huge over the landscape. And there's philosophy — for instance, this image from the online store:

"Rose Is Rose" has elements of "Calvin and Hobbes", "Curious Avenue", "The Far Side", and several other comic strips that are no more. And in 2004 "Rose is Rose" itself began the transition to a new artist/author, Don Wimmer. How it will evolve remains to be seen ...
