Ask a Cartoonist
If you ask a dozen cartoonists to describe the methods they use to write and draw their comics, you'll wind up with...well, a dozen different descriptions. As somebody who loves to write and draw, myself, I love hearing about how the pros do it-- it's how I discovered my favorite pen nib, my favorite brand of marker, and my favorite writing software.

When I first started working at King Features, I wouldn’t leave at lunch-- I would just sit at my desk and page through the amazing vintage comics-- lots of Quincy, Heart of Juliet Jones, Little Iodine, and Krazy Kat for me! And of course, Flash Gordon. As a kid, I had a load of Flash Gordon serials on video, and they were one of my favorite things to watch. So, in honor of Flash’s birthday yesterday, I decided to ask our cartoonists about their favorite vintage comics! Keep Reading
Whew! 2014 is here at last. My personal resolutions involve cleaning my desk…mmm…maybe cleaning this one-foot square of my desk; that's okay, right?
