    Editor’s Dispatch: Happy 100th Birthday, Charles Schulz!

    Hi, all! I hope you are recovering from your Thanksgiving feasts if you celebrate! Today, Saturday, November 26, is a very important day for comics history: the 100th birthday of Charles “Sparky” Schulz, the creator of Peanuts, one of the most beloved comic strips of all time. Usually, we only post about birthdays related to King Features comics, but Mr. Schulz was such an inspiration and good friend to so many of our cartoonists and had so much influence on the direction of not just comics but pop culture in the 20th century that we wanted to celebrate his legacy. Patrick McDonnell, the creator of MUTTS, spearheaded this project in collaboration with the Charles M. Schulz Museum to celebrate this special birthday! As you look around Comics Kingdom today, you will see many of cartoonists have contributed to this celebration by honoring Mr. Schulz in their comic strips. Here is a collection where you can see them all together!

    Now More Than Ever, We Need Humor

    The world needs so many things right now, but if you’re like most folks, a smile or a good laugh can go a long way in the mood department. I mean, just imagine if humor had to go into quarantine. Would you miss it? I’d miss it after an hour, let alone 14 days! I don’t want to seem as though I’m not taking the pandemic seriously. I am. People all over the world are feeling the sting of having their lives abruptly up-ended. Or worse. I won’t even go into the sickness, the loss of human life— you can get that info from the news. What I can say is this: with plenty of bad news to ramp up our collective anxiety, it’s really important to keep our minds healthy, and our spirits alive. Humor helps. A lot. There’s even science to back it up!  (I wish this particular bit of science was there for me when — many, many years ago— I’d get kicked out of class for laughing and drawing funny pictures.) Ah, well. Oh, and a note about subject matter. As you may know, our daily […]

    20th Anniversary of Rhymes With Orange: Special Edition Charming-Yet-Infrequent Newsletter

    In this newsletter: Reflections on 20 years Recap of the Reuben Awards 4 Cartoonists Pals, 4 New Books San Diego Comic Con REFLECTIONS ON 20 YEARS -June 19, 2005: Twenty years ago today my old housemates woke me ridiculously early in the morning to show me the June 19, 1995 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle.  There’s a picture somewhere (from an actual film camera!) of me bleary-eyed and bed-headed looking at the paper. Here is that first strip: To commemorate that officious moment, I have woken up bleary-eyed and bed-headed ever since. Note the quaint AOL address!   (Now, sadly, long gone.) Remember when AOL CDs used to rain from the sky, like propaganda leaflets in far away countries?  *Sigh*…Now it’s Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons.   Fast forward to June 19, 2015:  I woke up today with a call from my editor asking if he should commemorate the 20th anniversary with a blog post, or just skip it until the 25th. Me: “Skip it?  Are you kidding?  I want fireworks!” Him: “I don’t think we can arrange it in time.” Me: “How about a bottle rocket out your […]

    Rhymes With Orange: The Food Issue

    So my alumni magazine asked me to write the back page article on their issue devoted to food and foodies. Concurrently, James Branson sent me this video of my strip and his two labs. (Based on the video and the article, I realize I might be a lab.) The Video: This is the strip in the video: The two stars are Kelsy and Komu, search dogs for Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue. Kelsy searches for dogs and Komu searches for cats. The Article For Stanford Magazine July/August 2013 The Omnivore’s Dilemma What we talk about when we talk about what’s for dinner. By Hilary B. Price My toaster has two settings—burnt and off. There’s a reason I am good at stir-fries and bad at omelets—I have difficulty with the idea of low heat over an extended period of time. Extended as in 7 minutes. There are those who live to eat. Go enjoy the rest of this magazine, devoted this month to your kind. For those who eat to live, welcome to this small oasis on the back page. It’s a place for people whose idea of prepping a meal […]

    Supporting Cast: The Animals of RHYMES WITH ORANGE

    Now that it’s finally getting cold, we here at DailyINK are all thinking about cuddling up with our dogs and cats.  But some of our favorite pets around here are the ones who show up in Hilary Price’s comic, RHYMES WITH ORANGE. RHYMES WITH ORANGE doesn’t haveany recurring characters in the sense that we normally think of them (although Hilary points out that there is a woman with stringy red hair and floppy boobs who bears a more-than-passing resemblance to someone she sees in the mirror now and then), but pets tend to show up an awful lot. Hilary identifies herself on Twitter as the “master of overly large dog, maid of hoodlum cat.”  She says, “My dog comes to work at my studio every day and makes sure the couch stays put.  My cat kills things outside and presents them to me in an artistic and sadistic way.” Hilary’s relationship with animals goes back much further: “When I was little, my parents had three dogs.  And I was the youngest of three kids.  It was hit or miss whether my mom called me Michael, Muffin, Eric, Smokey, Jessica, Whiskers […]
