Cartoonist Howard Cruse Flashes Back To Pride 1984

Howard Cruse is best known as the artist-writer behind the award-winning graphic novel Stuck Rubber Baby. But he also brought us the queer comic strip Wendel.

Cruse recently posted a panoramic strip he did waaaay back in 1984, when the advances the LGBT community have achieved probably seemed like a pipe dream. And yet, some things remain the same.

Cruse writes:

Time-Machine Time! In 1984 a June installment of my Wendel comic strip portrayed the thoughts of Wendel, Ollie, and other at that year’s Gay Pride rally. The strip was actually a repeating panoramic loop (as I’ve emphasized by rearranging the panels end-to-end online) with but one mildly prescient exception to the repetition. Happy LGBT Pride Month to all!

You can see the whole strip in detail on Cruse’s website.

      That’s kinda sweet. It does show me that we have made gains… Long fought and hard-earned but gains nine the less.

      As you move the existing environment should make it infamously more
      difficult pertaining to flight companies to show a frequent gain, greater serious uphill conflict is usually how you can separate by themselves about the high-end
      of the company. A good many leading cabins right now appear normal using twee
      fringe benefits including sounds control earbuds, mirror sets, pyjamas,
      on-demand activity, system online and even Wi-Fi.
      The, surprisingly, is not a sufficient amount of for you to placate one of the most urbane passengers.

      Those who have enough money for it may possibly at present indulge in cocoon with the skies
      confidential enclosures, java rungs, showers, personal chefs plus sommeliers.
      Delightful with a completely new era associated
      with air travel.
      To be able, locate ten of the greatest top class aircraft, having the cost of
      a good round-trip work out (May 2012 costs in AUD) through
      the carrier_s mainstay to a key vacation spot.
