AN ACUTE CASE OF MICHIGANITIS

 

(Click the image to view full size)  

Soo, yes... the biggest February weekend in recent Michigan history is in the books,
and like the rest of us, Tom Blockham is still recovering.  If you think MICHIGANITIS
is a fabrication... just ask your wife on a Saturday morning, or your boss on a Friday
afternoon.  It's real, and it was a true PANDEMIC Saturday and Sunday.

May it show no mercy in 2012.

 

For those of you that publish blogs, contribute stories, or otherwise comment on the
goings on of all things Michigan, you can probably agree that it was no small feat trying
to find the right words to do it justice.  I can handily say this was not my first attempt
at addressing The Best Weekend Ever in the comic strip medium-- but in the end it
just came back to the characters, which I hope you've enjoyed getting to know better.

Speaking of which... new character alert for Thursday's strip.  Stay tuned.

 


 

THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs every Tuesday here at MGoBlog, and at least every
Thursday on its official home page.  Also, don't forget to check out our newest
feature, Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.

Follow THE BLOCKHAMS™ on Twitter at @theblockhams.


I'd also like your collective help!  I'd like to invite everyone to
LIKE THE BLOCKHAMS™ on Facebook at www.facebook.com/theblockhams.
If I break 250 by Friday I'll promise an extra strip that day on top of the Friday Rough!
LIKE THE BLOCKHAMS™ on your own Facebook page today and get updates
for every strip as soon as it's posted.  Thanks again and GO BLUE!

The strips are kind of South Park-esque in that way. It's pretty amazing how fast something like this, or South Park, can be completed. I was just thinking about this last night watching the South Park on Obama and McCain. Matt and Trey had to basically guess which guy was gonna win the election and they were right. The episode aired the day after the election I believe. Six Zero's comics are obviously smaller scale, but still pretty cool.

...to the wife. There IS a name for what happened this past weekend and why I had to stay glued to my iPad during every single errand! Hopefully, they never find a cure for "Michiganitis".

Awesome work, Six Zero!

All that was missing was replaying the sugar bowl. Putting OSU down, commits on commits on commits. Sadly there couldn't have been an additional weekend day to keep it all going a little longer.
