Share thoughts on ‘Argyle Sweater’


This week we’re testing another new comic strip, and voting on “The Argyle Sweater.”

The new comic, “Red and Rover,” is from Brian Basset, the Seattle-based creator of “Adam.” Loosely set in the late 1960s and based on Basset’s own childhood, it follows the adventures of a 10-year-old boy and his dog.

Like “Dustin,” which it replaces, “Red and Rover” is one of this year’s nominees for best newspaper comic strip by the National Cartoonists Society.

Reader voting on “Red and Rover” will begin in two weeks, after you’ve had a chance to become familiar with it.

Meanwhile, we’re accepting votes now on “Argyle Sweater,” which has run for the past two weeks in the former “6 Chix” space.

Call our comics line at (509) 459-3814, or send an email to, and rate “Argyle Sweater” on a scale of one to five, with one being the worst and five being the best.

Also please state your age and gender, to give us a better idea what types of readers it does, or doesn’t, appeal to.
