Keen for Keane

And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.


Mike Schneider, over at Franklin Avenue, stumbles into the thorny thicket that is the Family Circus mash-up. Losanjealous has debuted The Nietzsche Family Circus, pairing pithy lines from the crazed German philospher with the Bil Keane single panel cartoons.

Keane’s long-lived cartoon has inspired many, many spin-offs, most notably the late Dysfunctional Family Circus, that died after Keane spoke with the creator about it.

There’s no word yet if the official Keane organization has heard of this latest twist.

Amazing how Keane can keep drawing this stuff.
