Feed the Artist

Today's Dinette Set could be about anything, anything at all. It doesn't matter. Because at the end of the day it's just about a gigantic plug for Dinette Set merchandise.

I feel compelled to note that Bill Watterson, the creator of the greatest comic strip ever, was never willing to sully his creation by merchandising it.

Now that's chutzpah. I mean, real brass cojones.

There are two things that I've come to learn here: this artist really doesn't believe in lettering with a straightedge or even with some foresight (see: compressed "thedinetteset"), and this artist doesn't really do merch well.

I mean, Cafepress is for people just breaking into the biz, trying to merch some random slogan from their website at zero startup cost. A real comic artist oughta be able to scrounge up a proper merch site.
