I’m pretty bummed out about this news from Richard Thompson, creator of Cul de Sac.
…with this San Diego Funfest looming I feel obliged to go a little public. For the last year or so I’ve noticed a few odd symptoms; shakiness, hoarseness, silly walks, random clumsiness and the like. So the other day I went to see a neurologist and, after having me me jump through hoops, stand on my head and juggle chain saws, he said I’ve got Parkinson’s. It’s a pain in the fundament and it slows me down, but it hasn’t really affected my drawing hand at all and it’s treatable . And it could be a useful ploy in my ever-losing battle against deadlines.
If you haven’t been reading Cul de Sac, then you are really missing out on a great comic strip.Â We’re going to be sending positive thoughts Richard’s way.
