GoComics Staff Pick: Heavenly Nostrils by Dana Simpson

This week's Staff Pick comes from our Production Editor, Jane: Phoebe and her best friend, a magical unicorn named Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, make quite the pair. I love Phoebe's imaginative and whimsical spirit, and Marigold's contrasting self-absorbed, know-it-all-yet-doesn't-know-it-all attitude. They balance each other out in all the best, silly ways and make a great BFF duo. As the little sister to a brother who grew up with Calvin and Hobbes, I'm jealous Phoebe and Marigold weren't around for me back in the day.

I loved this coffee story line for two reasons. 1. I love coffee. 2. I often "oversparkle" (and am totally going to call it that from now on!).

Basically, anything involving dorky flippers is the best. Particularly the one on Marigold's tail.

COMICS SHERPA: EDITOR'S PICKS

This recurring LAUGH TRACKS feature highlights individual Sherpa strips and panels that for one reason or another caught the fancy of the aide de sherpa. It could be anythng; the drawing, the writing, the humor, the coloring, that they tried something interesting, or that it's a new step for that particular creator.

 

We hope this quirky sampler will alert you to features you might not yet have noticed amid Sherpa's abundant, ever-changing, and eclectic mix, and that it gives Sherpa creators a modicum of helpful feedback.

Congratulations, Lincoln Peirce!

It’s not every day that you break a world record, but Big Nate cartoonist Lincoln Peirce just did!

 

This morning, Peirce and HarperCollins Children’s Books broke the Guinness World Records title for the world’s longest cartoon strip by a team! Made up of Big Nate panels created by students, the 3,983-foot comic strip spanned New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza and was verified by Guinness World Records adjudicator Mike Janela.

To add even more excitement, the record was broken live on the "Today" show in New York City!

Absentminded Moments

While walking out to my car this morning, I had to run back into the house because I forgot my sunglasses. As I walked in circles, I noticed a slight discomfort on the top of my head—I found my sunglasses! That is a sure way to make you feel like you are losing your mind (I blame it on the fact that I hadn’t had my coffee yet!).

 

I was looking through some different comics today and I came across this Doodle Town comic, which reminded me of my airhead moment from this morning. I couldn’t help but laugh!

Here are a few different characters who are experiencing similar issues:

Whether you are looking for something that is right under your nose or you walk through a magical doorway that erases your memory, remember that everyone has these moments!
