It’s February, Groundhog Day has already come and gone…and depending on where you are, the rodent has made his predictions. At Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Phil emerged from his burrow and declared a beautiful spring is just around the corner. Canada’s Wiarton Willie agrees with Phil…but Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam does not agree. We’re not sure where you lie on the prognostication of gophers, but what we can all agree on is that with the Spring will come even MORE great comics.
