A Couple of Sad Sacks (Part Eight of a Continuing Series)


Kent Osborne, one of the stars of an upcoming short film based on a story I wrote, is quite the polymath: a writer (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie) and artist as well as an actor, and some other things we can't go into here. That sad little character you see in this "blog" entry is a creation of his. It's no wonder that Sad Sack is Kent's all-time favorite comic book character from back when he was a boy. Sad Sack, by the way, also makes a significant appearance in "The Golden Anvil," a novella by Jeff McNeil. There's a pretty fascinating history of Sack at Donald Markstein's "Toonopedia" site. In fact, that brings us to today's "blogging" tip: The internet is full of all kinds of information! Check out the internet some time!
