Sunday Funny - The Graevsytes

Last week's Sunday Funny was Non Sequitur.

For Halloween Month, I am showcasing one of the families who occasionally appear in that strip, The Graevsytes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Graevsytes were introduced on September 8, 2002, and bear similarities to The Addams Family. They also appeared in Danae's Halloween series in October and November 2002.

In the Non Sequitur Sunday Color Treasury, Wiley Miller said he decided to stop using them after some violent images came out of Iraq. He left the door open for future appearances. They reappeared on October 1, 2006.

The family is made up of father Horace, who carries his head on a plate; mother Miranda, who floats around the house; teenage son Boyle, who bears some resemblance to Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films; a daughter Mimi; and a baby in a bird cage named Ira.

  3. The artwork is pretty good. Maybe not the funniest strip in the world - but, then, neither was The Addams Family strip.
