Editor's Dispatch: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and a Bizarro Anniversary!

Here at King Features, we have the day off in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr's work for civil rights, so I'd like to wish all of you the best today.  I feel lucky to see firsthand how comics so often bring people of many different backgrounds together.  They so often seem like such a small part of our daily existence, but they are something so many of us share in common. 

In honor of the day, here's a cute Curtis comic strip about Civil Rights leader Rosa Parks:




It's also a very important anniversary for Bizarro, which launched thirty (THIRTY) years ago this week!  And of course, Bizarro just keeps getting better with age, like an eyeball or a stick of dynamite.   Let's all raise our pies and toast Dan Piraro on this special occasion!   Congrats, Dan!

Here's an oldie-but-goodie that seems particularly prescient these days:


I am also very excited to let you know that The On the Fastrack Dethany in Virtu/Noir Interactive novella is now available on the iTunes store!  Click here to purchase Dethany in Virtu/Noir!  It's really cool, and you should definitely check it out!
