This is another cartoon where I want to know the back-story. Was there an incident in the week that Celie expected to be the subject of the weekly cartoon? Something particularly saucy? It makes me wonder if the drawings were part of their day-to-day conversation during the week. Would Celie maybe suggest that a particular event was or wasn’t commemorated?
Ab was also, to my mind, a master at depicting posture. I love the priest-like hands together in this one, together with the archaic “Oh, Fie!”
