Lackadaisy Cacophony by tracyjb Lackadaisy Cacophony by tracyjb
The radio programming is a rather thinly veiled allusion to Hary Reser's Clicquot Club Eskimos, who graced the very early NBC radio of the 1920's and 30's.

The radio itself is a bit of an anachronism - I don't think the first all-in-one tabletop radio (tubes and speaker) was marketed until about 1930 by Philco. Prior to that, tabletops generally consisted of a coffin-style box and a separate speaker. I always found the classic cathedral style radios appealing, however, and I wanted to draw one. My conscience may compel me to replace it with something a little more accurate when it comes time to print a Volume 2 book, though.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 Books are available here.

All prior comic pages can be read in the Archive.

I'm also now Twittering about Lackadaisy site updates and related things from here.

It is entirely possible that I've told you this before, and if so, I'm sorry for spamming your page, but I was just rereading your fantastic comics (seriously, the art and the writing are fantastic!) and I kinda freaked out a little at your reference to Harry Reser, because I'm actually related to him :XD: I'm not sure if I'm descended from him directly, but he's part of my family tree.
So I kind of feel honored you included it in your work :)

I must say that Ivy, Viktor and Freckle are my favourite characters! :la:
Balmung6 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2012
Ha, imagine dating a girl and having a guy like Victor to deal with as the father - yikes to the max. Can't blame the kid for trying to sneak out of there - but it's kinda cute that she seems almost pouty about it ^^
