I blogged a few months ago about reaching #100 in a series of “End Strips” on my Patreon page– these being short, vertically-formatted comics drawn on random strips of paper trimmed from larger sheets for various reasons, usually some project my daughter Rebecca is doing for school. These have cycled through a number of themes, including portraits of friends on Facebook, nude figure studies drawn from models posing on YouTube, short comics featuring my characters Sandy & Mandy, travel sketches, and so on. At the time, I was just beginning a series illustrating palindromes written by my son Ben; the first of these was #100 (Palindrome definition: a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward, e.g., madam or nurses run.):

Well, I’ve been in a heavy-duty palindrome phase ever since. The panels below give some idea:
Most of these have been written by Ben, but occasionally I come up with one on my own, such as this one from an all-yarn themed strip:
A lot of these palindromes are on the raunchy side, and I put the smuttiest of them in a single strip, which Patreon’s rules required me to put behind a paywall, so you’ll have to become a Patron to see the rest of this one (Not expensive. You can pledge at the $1 level, then quit right away):
Here are links to the palindrome strips posted to date:
