NCC Dead Writers Division Championship
Welcome back comics-fans to exciting second round coverage of the National Crappy Comics Competition ™. For those of you joining us late, first round action in the NCCC™ is complete and the results follow. Remember, the “winner” is the strip most worthy of being purged forever from the comics pages.
Dead Writer Division
Dennis the Menace lost to Andy Capp
Peanuts was defeated by Shoe
Pointless Soap Division
Mary Worth trounced Apt 3G
Mark Trail was upset by Rex Morgan
Just Not Funny Divsion
Garfield got edged out by Cathy
BC ran rough-shod over Family Circus
Beetle Bailey was butchered by Hagar the Horrible.
Hi and Lois passed Raising Duncan in a forfeit.
For our the championship of the the Dead Writer Division, we have Andy Capp facing off against Shoe. Andy Capp is famous around the world as being synonymous with “wife-beating drunk” . But if you ask someone who Rex Smythe is you either get a blank stare or a wild guess like “Elton John’s real name” or “right fielder for the 1918 Cardinals” . Jeff MacNelly on the other hand was a journalistic legend whose legacy is being defiled every day by the big black vultures circling his grave. Let the man rest in peace.
Next up: The Pointless Soap Division Championship
Or on to the Final Four.
