Timeline – 1998 Part 2

Hi and Lois Sunday page digital proof, June 7, 1998.

This is one of my favorite pages from the late 1990s.  It was reproduced in the 2005 book Hi and Lois Sunday Best.  The original art was also featured in the 2014 exhibition King of the Comics at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum in Columbus, Ohio and is now in their permanent collection.

School’s Out

Schools-out-for-summerFor most students, the 2014 – 2015 school year has ended. The old nonsense rhyme always comes back to me at this time: “No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers’ dirty looks.”

These lines were included in the lyrics to the 1972 Alice Cooper hit, “School’s Out,” preceded by the unforgettable verses: “School’s out for summer. School’s out forever. School’s been blown to pieces.”
