About Rose is Rose

Rose Is Rose is a syndicated comic strip, written by Pat Brady since its creation in 1984, and drawn since March 2004 by Don Wimmer. The strip revolves around Rose and Jimbo Gumbo, their son Pasquale, and the family cat Peekaboo. Rose and Jimbo are deeply in love with each other, sometimes exchanging love notes or kissing under the stars, and doting fondly on Pasquale. Rose is Rose is unusual, especially in modern comic strips, in that it has a generally positive and cheerful outlook on life and deals heavily with the emotional states of its characters, especially Rose and Pasquale. Rose and sometimes Jimbo are drawn as little children to emphasize 'inner child' experiences. Rose is sometimes shown leaning against her 'let it be' tree when dealing with heavy burdens. The strip also features highly daring 'camera angles' and perspectives, often giving the illusion through frames of real motion.
