I hope NN carries Ayla Kreelak’s cartoons for a looooong time. I enjoy their timeliness, her sparse style, and ability to portray a character’s personality and mood with few lines. Since a wee one, I’ve spent hours most weekends enjoying cartoons. Sadly, so many strips today are ‘blah’. But Kreelak’s work is fresh and eye-catching. It’s great to see a new talent showing such skill around today’s issues. Keep up the good work, AK!
