Palookaville 17: Yet Another Continuation Of "Clyde Fans"!

In this issue, Simon talks to toys and puts his mother to bed.  Here are some random thoughts on the comic:

*One of cartoonist Seth's chief charms is his self-deprecation.  You can see this in the line on the cover.  It's not exactly selling the comic with sizzle, is it?  This issue came out in 2004, at which point he'd been serializing this story in Palookaville longer than he did all the other stories combined.  He might have been getting tired of it dragging on as well.  Now it's eight years on and we're about all in the same place, though the story has advanced a bit.

*I don't have much to say about this issue, other than I'm surprised that I didn't notice that I had missed the previous issue after I bought this one.  My comic collection was in a couple of different places, so that probably explains how I didn't discover that 16 was missing until a few years later.
