A Kinder, Simpler Time Dept.: Your Comics

Aug. 30, 1978, Tumbleweeds

Aug. 30. 1978: I had forgotten about Tom K. Ryan's "Tumbleweeds" until I started going through the old comics pages. The strip is full of annoying stereotypes but the one I found the most obnoxious was Hildegard Hamhocker, the desperately man-hungry spinster who is, of course, dowdy and bucktoothed. The passage of time has, if anything, made her even more odious. Oh, is she cross-eyed too? Nice.
