Ask A Cartoonist: On Location

Though it may seem like a rarity, sometimes cartoonists *do* get out from behind their desks to see the world-- and when they do, the sights they see often become inspiration for new locations in their comics. This week, I asked our cartoonists to share real-world locations that have found their way into their work. Keep Reading

Ask A Cartoonist: Those other Cartoons!

Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons!

We love cartoons here at KFS-- and with good reason. From the early days of animation and pioneers like Winsor McCay, comic strips and animated cartoons have flourished side by side, and often featured the same characters! Many animated movies were inspired by characters who got their start in the funny pages, and many comic strips allowed us to explore the further adventures of our animated favorites! Keep Reading

It's the Ides of March, which of course is a lot less tasty than yesterday (Pi Day), but of course, we all know to beware 60 of our closest friends conspiring to assassinate us today! Today, in honor of the downfall of Julius Caesar, I asked our cartoonists to talk about THEIR downfalls and weaknesses: Keep Reading

Ask A Cartoonist: Women Who Inspire

Happy Women's History Month, all!

Women have been an important part of cartooning since the early days of the comics pages brought us cartoonists like Rose O'Neill and Grace Drayton. Today, the contributions of women in comics are undeniable: our very own Terri Libenson, of The Pajama Diaries, won the Silver Reuben for Best Comic Strip last year, Hilary Price of Rhymes With Orange won the 2014 award for Best Comic Panel, and Isabella Bannerman of Six Chix won for best strip of 2013.

Ask A Cartoonist: Holiday Treats!!!

As someone with both Christian and Jewish family, I'm very excited that Hanukkah is overlapping with Christmas this year! Since the Christian side of my family is Italian, the family traditions of frying dough work out perfectly with the traditions of frying latkes, and I can't say no to double fried food! As the holidays are approaching, I asked our cartoonists to tell us about their favorite holiday treats! Keep Reading

Ask A Cartoonist: Year in Review!

2016 seems to have come and gone in the blink of an eye! But so many great things happened here at King Features, for so many of your favorite cartoonists.
