Mermaids in Comics

Each day, cartoonist Rick Ellis shares his half baked humor in his comic strip, Half Baked. From time to time, his mind wanders to mermaids and we are treated to a mermaid themed cartoon.

Half Baked is certainly worth a daily visit, even when we merfolk are not the subject of the day. You can find Half Baked Comics on Facebook, where Rick always posts the cartoon of the day. At the official web site, you can browse the archive or buy one of the Half Baked books.

Mike Peters is the cartoonist behind the popular syndicated comic strip, Mother Goose and Grimm. Most of Mike's offerings center around the title characters, Mother Goose and her mischievous dog, Grimm. Occasionally, the title characters get a day off as in this example from February, 2010.

Whenever I see a new mermaid themed comic, I attempt to contact the cartoonist to thank them. I usually get a nice thank-you back, but sometimes I get a little more. When I thanked Mike for the above comic, he replied, "Thank you for your kind note, it made my day!"

You can find out more about Mother Goose and Grimm at the official web site.

A big splash of thanks to you both for allowing me to print the above comics!

Best wishes and starfishes,
