News Around the Kingdom: January Happenings!
Greetings Comics Royals!
We hope 2016 is off to a good start for you!
Thank You and Good Night, Patrick’ McDonnell’s (“Mutts”) highly-acclaimed picture book, graces the cover of the School Library Journal’s “Best Books of 2015” issue! Just add it to the growing list of accolades this book has been garnering!
Brian Walker (“Hi & Lois”) looks back at a 2012 Sunday page that tells readers what a Happy New Year is!
Brian also tells us that in 1978, Harry N. Abrams collaborated with the Newspaper Comics Council to produce a series of limited edition comic art prints by twenty of America’s top cartoonists! Individual prints have sold for over $250 per print or $600 for a set of twenty!
In other news…
Jeff Parker (“Dustin”) posts about Kristaps Porzingis, a “Dustin” playing in the NBA! The 7’3” 20-year-old baller lives with his parents even though he has a $4 million New York Knicks contract!
Karen Moy (“Mary Worth”) tells us about Mary and Olive’s street encounter and what inspired her to write it!
Finally, Dan Piraro (“Bizarro”) gives us the run-down on his hilarious cartoons for the week!
