Bob Thames, R.I.P.

Bob Thames, the creator of the Frank and Earnest comic strip, died on August 1. According to his family, he was semi-retired at the time, with another creator doing the strip; so the strip will probably continue. The strip wasn't always funny (a daily comic strip that is always funny is one of the rarest of treasures in the world), but it definitely gave me some smiles -- particularly in the seventies, when Thames was still the creator.
