The Irresistible Rose Is Rose

The Irresistible Rose Is Rose by Pat Brady

More comics about Rose Gumbo (and her alter-ego Vicki), her husband Jimbo, her son Pasquale (and his guardian angel) and other continuing characters.  With a tendency to the sweet.

One shots like Vicki going to the store to pick up the special ordered rattlesnake meat for her chili.  Or Pasquale's reflection being interrupted in a race with the alert that Pasquale is approaching a mirror -- in mirror writing, of course.

And sequences like Rose hitting a Y2K problem of her own rather the computers, where she sees everything Victorianized.
