FoxTrot and the Eyes of March

Amend, Bill. "Beware the Eyes of March." Your Mamma Thinks Square Roots are Vegetables. Andrews McMeel: Kansas City, 2003. 114.

The Ides of March always seems to call for a comic of some sort.

But where could we search for such a thing?

Would Bill Amend, the creator of FoxTrot, be willing to oblige us with one?

Why, yes!

As a matter of fact he would.

And now that I've filled this space with a few brief sentences, we can turn to it.

The comic is actually from 2002—the fifteenth of March, 2002, to be precise!

Thanks, Mr. Amend, for this delighful take on the Ides of March.
