About this ComicThe AuthorsThe Characters

Redeye en Español fue creado por Gordon Bess en 1967. Cuando se enfermó gravemente en 1988, creó su última tira, lo que él creyó sería un “final” humorístico de la serie. El editor de comics de King Features Bill Yates, quien también era un caricaturista, decidió que dicha tira no terminaría y entre él y el artista Mel Casson continuaron ese trabajo al día siguiente. Yates dejó de contribuir en 1999 y Casson siguió como dibujante y escritor hasta su muerte en mayo de 2008. Entonces, King Features puso fin a la tira cómica.

Redeye es una afectuosa parodia del género Western. Refleja el mundo del excéntrico jefe de la tribu india Chickiepan. El exceso de peso y el  aturdimiento de Redeye en su búsqueda de gloria desconciertan a su arrogante caballo Mustang, Loco, a su bromista hijo, Porky, y a su hija Tawnee, quien está enamorada del tonto de la tribu, Tanglefoot.

Mel Casson

Well-known artist and illustrator Mel Casson writes and illustrates Redeye. For more than 15 years, he illustrated the strip while prolific cartoonist Bill Yates wrote it. When Yates retired in 1999, Casson began to write the strip as well.

Casson has had five cartoon books published, including his anthology, "Ever Since Adam and Eve." His cartoons have appeared in virtually every national magazine and his drawings appeared in advertisements for IBM, General Electric, Kodak and Black and Decker. He has served on the board of governors of the Newspaper Comics Council and the National Cartoonists Society.
