I voted Nader in 2000, but then I was living in New York, which was going to go for Gore no matter what I did. Still, hindsight does put all the "Oh, there's no difference between Bush and Gore" from back then in quite a different perspective.

Mikl posted:

Just for the record, this one strip dates exactly when Valiant is happening pretty firmly; though Attila never actually conquered Rome itself (that was Alaric, king of the Visigoths), he was making his merry way through Europe in 450-451, and he died in 453, his empire quickly disintegrating after that. So this Valiant strip must be happening between 450 and 453, maybe plus a year or so (to allow for news of the Hun invasion to travel to Britain).

But of course Valiant is a fantasy comic strip which has only the most tenuous link to real life, so...

Stultus Maximus posted:

He does have significant interactions with Justinian later on, which is a century later. But the authors do a pretty good job of fixing historic events to the 5th-7th century. The clothing, armor, and architecture of course is hell of anachronistic.

Mister Olympus posted:

So it takes place in a 14th century idea of the 5th century

You can date this storyline relatively precisely, since we will be meeting Valentinian and Aetius eventually. But I wouldn't worry too much about the timing of the strip in general, at least in the modern ones Islam is already on the rise so there's a good range of a couple hundred years in there. Plus the clothing, equipment, and architecture all range pretty broadly. Arthur's Camelot has a huge egg-shaped dome that would have been a catherdral-worthy project to build in the late Medieval period, for example, let alone in "Dark Ages" Britain.

Vintage Valiant (May 21, 1939)



This strip has me wondering where exactly Thule is - I had assumed it was in Scandinavia somewhere, but maybe it's in Denmark or something if Val was able to ride on a horse from his father's castle all the way to parts of mainland Europe that the Huns have gotten to.

Not in the states (we're defective and lack a love of Moomin), but I have a couple that I bought at a Moomin Cafe when I went to Tokyo.

Totally disagree. I appreciate the Moomins a lot more because all I can do is read the books and the comics and not have it saturate my consciousness like Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny.

Dykes to Watch Out For #59 (1989)



The last time I was stumped by Lois' earring but today they're pretty straightforward-- since the 1970s the pink triangle has been reclaimed as a symbol of LGBTQ+ stuff, and in particular was used in the logo to the 1987 March on Washington which featured prominently earlier in the strip, as well as in the logo for the AIDS activism group ACT UP.

Petticoat Junction was a sitcom that ran from 1963 to 1970 and was one of a wave of rural-themed shows of the period. Like many of those shows it was a victim of the "rural purge" in the early 70s and networks shifted from Americana-themed rural shows popular with older viewers to more urban and contemporary stuff. The implication here, I guess, is both that Milkweed's farm-based cloud of authenticity is being juxtaposed with a very goofy and manufactured show about rural life, and that she's being a dipshit by not only hypocritically watching stuff on a GE television but choosing to watch something lovely and dated (not at all the "recent development" Sparrow suggests).

Joy of discovery. I think that not knowing about Moomin until I was 30 (or in my wife's case, only knowing about the children's books and not the joy of the strips) is better than what I'm seeing with my 3 year old daughter who has opinions about her favorite Disney Princess™® despite never having seen a Disney movie in her life.

After its primetime run Petticoat Junction had been a syndication staple in the 70's but had faded badly by the time of the strip, much more so even than contemporaneous rural-themed shows like Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres. So there's also an implication Milkweed is being immature watching something the characters (and readers of the time) would have thought of as an after-school kiddie show, because that's how they had seen it.

To a large extent the joke is on Sparrow for going to such lengths to defend Milkweed, and maybe that's some of why Bechdel chose to drop it even though that's a really good punchline.
