In other news…

Mort Walker (“Beetle Bailey”) describes the creation of the characters Fuzz, Chaplain, and Rocky!

Patrick McDonnell and MUTTS are featured in an article in The Atlantic City Press!  The article shines a spotlight onto the artist, the characters, the history of comics, and the state of New Jersey! It takes a look at the way different elements combine into the MUTTS ethos — for example, Patrick’s love of comics that fueled his desire to become a cartoonist himself. Of the future of comics, he says, “People will always enjoy stories told with words and pictures.”
