Just because you won’t have Cathy to kick around anymore doesn’t mean you have go without strong female characters in a comic strip. You know what comic prominently features no less than THREE female characters? Welcome to Falling Rock National Park! Dee, the junior Park Ranger from Tucson, Arizona is sometimes described* as the “heart” of the strip. She loves her job.
Not only is she adept and intelligent, she’s pretty good-looking.
Ranger Dee is, however, far from the only female in this desert park. She is pictured above sitting next to Melissa the mountain lion. Melissa, being a cat, is ferocious, but she also makes beautiful large-scale sculptures.
Of course I would be remiss if I neglected to mention Pam, the retired schoolteacher javelina. Pam is the Perpetual Babe of the Month here at Falling Rock National Blog. It’s easy to see why:
Newspaper editors: when it comes time to fill the Cathy void this October, think Ranger Dee!
Readers: wouldn’t you rather see Falling Rock in your local paper than some machine-made corporate Brand X comic strip? Write your paper and tell them that Falling Rock National Park is what you want.
