Ask A Cartoonist: Who's Your Valentine?
Isabella Bannerman, Six Chix:
I like the characters from Tina’s Groove by Rina Piccolo, and I bet they would be fun to hang out with on Valentine’s Day, but if no one was around, I would just drown my sorrows with a big mug of hot chocolate.
Bill Griffith, Zippy The Pinhead:
I'm sending a King Features Valentine to my favorite misogynist, Mr. The Toad.
Because if I don't, he'll hate me.
James Allen, Mark Trail:
Who doesn't desire a dream date with Mark Trail?!!
John Rose, Barney Google and Snuffy Smith:
As this sketch indicates, I'm sure Snuffy Smith's dog, Ol' Bullet, would have a crush on Dagwood Bumstead's dog, Daisy! He would love it if she would be his "Comics Kingdom" Valentine! Bow-WOW!
Mort Walker, Beetle Bailey:
You should know that Miss Buxley is my comic dreamgirl. I think I even have Cathy's approval on this if I just don't bring her to life.
Ron Ferdinand, Dennis the Menace:
I think Hank captured this childhood crush moment beautifully.
