I loved the Heathcliff cartoons growing up (the version I remember best was the Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats version) and the Heathcliff books that had collections of the strips. I still have most of them, packed next to the Peanuts and Family Circus books. Wait a minute, is Hollywood raiding my childhood reading shelf??? Oh, crap, now expect movies of Beetle Baily, Pavlov the dog, a Muppets comic strip, Mad magazine, Bloom County, Hagar the Horrible, and Marvin the baby! And that’s not even counting my shelves and shelves of non-comic strip books. Sorry that I have inflicted this on America, America.
