Has the guy who draws Broom Hilda ever seen a kangaroo?


The guy is Russel Myers. He’s been drawing the strip since it started in 1970 and, so far as I know, he’s doing all right. At one point he was like a year ahead of deadline, which is amazing. There are times I’ve been as much as four hours ahead of deadline, myself.

As for whether he’s seen a kangaroo … uh .. .

Hm.

Broom Hilda rides in the pouch of a kangaroo who's wearing checkerboard shorts and a big Taxi cap. In the second panel she's out of the pouch and shhaking badly; she hands a $ bill to the kangaroo. In the last panel the kangaroo's hopping away, while Broom Hilda says, 'I'll never do THAT again on a full stomach!'
Russell Myers’s Broom Hilda for the 2nd of July, 2019. Still, since I’m one of those persons who needs about thirty more seconds to compose a response than the conventions of small talk allow, I’m grateful that this isn’t a chatty kangaroo taxi driver.

You know, I hate to say anything bad about a person with the courage to dress a character in checkerboard pants but … just … that’s a dog’s tail and maybe a mole’s body. I’m waiting for the judges regarding what the legs are exactly but just … no. Sorry.
