Lackadaisy Luncheon by tracyjb Lackadaisy Luncheon by tracyjb
Four new pages. Sorry about the file size. They seemed to hold up better as a set.

Reference I used for the Bevo Mill restaurant was mostly J.R. Eike photos of early 20th century St. Louis. Its appearance hasn't changed much over the years...except that it has recently closed.
Early on, the poor female waitstaff had to wear faux-Dutch getups. Apparently dining kitsch -has- been around that long.
"Bevo" was the Anheuser-Busch brand of "near-beer" during Prohibition years. I guess I couldn't resist the irony of injecting it here...even if no one cared but me. =P

Lackadaisy Volume 1 Books are available here.

All previous Lackadaisy comic pages can be found in the Archive.

There's a typo in Mitzi's dialogue in the 12th panel. It should read "You did almost gEt Victor killed last night".

Urlocalbum Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2010
haha, i love the guy that tags along with rocky, at the table when he was looking at the butterfly, reminds me of myself, absent minded :D
OfTheBlessed Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013
That's his little cousin: Calvin "Freckle" McMurray.  He's more afraid of butterflies than he is distracted.

i love you.

your story is halarious (and mysterious) and your characters are adorable.
SummerChild202 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
i love rocky <3
werewolftrixie Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009
Notice how Freckle swats frantically at the butterfly. Hmmmm... reminds me of something...
I wonder if he was really that traumatized by our furry... protaganist's? Previous antics.

I loved it as usual, although... it would make a bunch of sence if you would put ALL of the pages on here...
katarthis Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Superb story telling. I feel that what we've seen before is all backstory to the fireworks to come. Their personalities are really well defined, and Mordecai... creepy personified. Apparently Mitzi is not entirely up on just the sort of war she's decided to climb back into. One black cat's pistol to the jaw would solve Asa's problems for the moment, and I'm not so sure Morde's gentleman creed precisely defines which ladies not to hit.

Oh my science. I'm absolutely stunned you your type of art, you're a huge inspiration to me. I don't get how you do this, but you can do it. You have an absolutely outstanding talent! :)
wings33 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2009
Mitzi's paws look more.. pawlike than usual. Not that that's a bad thing, it just caught my attention.
It delights me to see that Mordecai, veteran sociopath that he is, can be caught off-guard by a purse.
Also enjoyed the "creepy way" exchange. :)
Wonderful as always.

Hilarious as always. It's a dangerous read if you're sitting in the library. =)

shingleton33 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009
why is that?
Prima-Donna Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2009  Professional
Because you're supposed to be quiet in the library. Yet, if you don't laugh, you might get a headache from holding it all in. ^^;

shingleton33 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2009
k thanks
MangaCyco Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2009
After reading this I had to go
look up what Bevo was on Wikipedia.
pancakemanX Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
No, the Bevo and Asa mentioning it's "cute" fit in real well. 'Course I didn't get it until you told me what it was in the description, but still, it works.
Aioliki Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009

Oh jeebus... Mitzi's face...and the skinny pancake comment... And Freckle's poofin' up and swattin' away a harmless butterfly? :lmao: LOL! All very priceless.

Extra breathing holes. Oh Rocky and his crazy comments. :rofl: Also Mordecai's ohsoserious face is the best. :lol:

I've got a good laugh from this one. :)
I hafta say, Rocky and Freckle remind me of my own cats.
