Here's one reader's reaction to the above Fusco strip from this past Sunday:

I subscribe to the San Diego Union Tribune Sunday Paper and was SHOCKED to see this Sunday's Fusco Brothers cartoon talking about horse sex in a hotel. Are you kidding me???? These cartoon pages have Peanuts, Dennis the Menace and other kid friendly cartoons. I understand that some comics are not "ha-ha" funny like Doonesbury. But they are not disgusting with references to animal sex.

This type of humor is more appropriate for a night club with drunk people, not a family newspaper. Someone needs to talk to Fusco-- this type of "humor" belongs in the toilet, not in the Sunday Comics.

Actually, what this reader doesn't know is that I originally wanted to make it sex between a horse and some other species, and that this was my toned-down version.

Who knew that Doonesbury was "ha-ha" funny?

Who knew that a night club with drunk people was such a fun place? (I'll have to look into this.)

But I WILL "talk to Fusco" about this.

This was yesterday's Fusco Brothers comic strip:

This was the original unpublished cartoon that I watered down and recycled:

From filth to family fare!

Several magazines turned down this cartoon. (This is the no-frills rough sketch).

But The Fusco Broithers said YES! (This is the no-frills finiished product.)

Picasso had his Blue Period.

I'm currently in my Brown Period.

My short-lived comic strip MIDDLE-AGED WHITE GUY ended its run on GoComics back in January, and the resulting groundswell of profound indifference has prompted me to rerun the strips here on NIGHT DEPOSITS. No one requested this, but that's only because Posterity can't speak.

Fans of Comique Noir will be disappointed to see that I've added color, while fans of Unbridled Hilarity will be disappointed to see that I haven't added humor. Who says you can't disappoint everybody?

There are 60 strips in the can, so to speak, and I'm going to run them once a week starting today. Mark your calendars and tell your neighbors!
