You can't really talk about Bronze Age comic strips without talking about the strip that was born in the '70's, and basically stayed there for the next 30 years.
George & Lynne ran in The Sun newspaper forever, and is possibly the single un-funniest comic strip ever done by anybody ever.
( The Sun, for the benefit of readers across the pond, is the British byword for 'yellow' journalism, it's main interests being women's breasts, Z-list celebrities, football and world news. In that order. )
George & Lynne is basically about a typical British middle class couple, and their aversion to both clothing and political correctness. As the pair go from dinner parties to neighbours' barbecues to the golf club, Lynne in particular spends most of her time wearing as little as possible, while George stands by, always ready with a leering, sexist quip or several.All of which is completely in keeping with British newspaper strips like Jane or Amanda, and would all be fine and splendid, were the strip actually funny.
Like a Carry On film, everyone in George & Lynne is 'at it', and they seem to have an inordinate amount of friends and acquaintances who are getting divorced, or having affairs, or doing both at the same time.
Not our happily married funsters though. As long as Lynne cooks the dinner dressed in nothing but a skimpy apron, George is happy. And who can blame him, as she can't cook for shit.
George & Lynne also, quite often, doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Ok, I get, maybe, that George doesn't get to see enough of Lynne's arse on a daily basis, so these are clever ploys to get her to bend over...
But that's an extraordinarily complicated scheme just to get a look at her legs.
And does George really not see enough of his wife's tits that he has to climb a ladder to spy on her in the shower?? Here's a tip, George, buy The Sun. You can see Lynne's tits every day, just like the rest of us.
For a silly romp, George & Lynne actually had some heavyweight talent in the art department, including John M. Burns and Jose Gual, who did the black & white strips here. You can't really like or dislike this strip, it's just sort of there, and always has been. And that's all you can really say about it.
Except... Jose got away with this second panel how exactly?
