Family Business

Inspired by Amanda's blog find, Permanent Monday, a study of Garfield comics from which Garfield's thought bubbles have been removed, I've collected a small sample of Bill Keane's Family Circus and removed the dialogue. What we get is a strange and disturbing look into a dysfunctional and somewhat violent family. I give you a sample:

To be fair, I did not *find* Permanent Monday so much as get tipped off to its existence -- it's curated by a friend (Chris Stangl) of a friend (Dan Brooks). But I do really love it. And I also love these, especially the top two.
