Comic Strip / Rose is Rose

Go To

Rose is Rose is an award winning comic strip (written by Pat Brady since 1984 and drawn by Don Wimmer since 2004) about the life of Rose Gumbo, her husband Jimbo and their family and friends. It takes place in an eternally positive, saccharine setting, where the adult characters are constantly reverting to children (especially when confronted with something that reminds them of childhood, like butterflies or ice cream), and if the Gumbos fight, they're making up by the third frame of the strip.

While some may want to retch at such sugary stuff, most readers agree that it's a fun, safe, well-written comic strip. Supporting characters like Peekaboo the cat, baby Mimi and her mom, and various neighborhood animals provide a fresh perspective on how we look at our "ordinary" lives.
