Chris Baldwin, the author and illustrator of the terribly poignant, often deep and extremely adult Bruno, has created a new comic strip called Little Dee, which replaces Bruno until September 1st. Here’s the start of the Little Dee run.
The only similarity between the two strips is that Dee looks like a little version of Bruno. Aside from that, it’s completely different: Little Dee is about a girl who gets lost in the woods and ends up being cared for by a friendly bear, a vulture and a dog who’s broken free from the domesticated life. Where Bruno is all angst and Weltschmerz (and hey, ain’t nuthin’ wrong with that), Little Dee is light and cute.
And hey, I’m a sucker for friendly cartoon bears.
