Basketball Blues

Based on a true event, this is a been-there-done-that comic strip from my high school days and drawn later (1983), and features Bruce from my Louie and Bruce comic. Here I’ve exaggerated Bruce’s short height with the tall basketball players. There were always those taller, faster, more athletic kids at school who hogged the ball while kids less fortunate waited their chance to “shoot some hoops.” When Bruce gets his chance, the ball has no life left in it. Lifeless is a good description of the basketballs at my school from 1969 to 1975.

  1. You’re also a great cartoonist?? This is most excellent news.

    You brought back some acute high school memories for me. They weren’t particularly welcome, but they certainly confirmed your authentic voice, sharp wit, and brilliant satiric gift– well done, sir!

    1. Thank you for the kudos, Mark. I think I developed most of my wit while at high school and during a most awkward time in my life. Still, I have fond memories of that era. I tried my hand at practically everything, trying to be a Renaissance kid, I suppose.
