Greetings Comics Royals!

With several Presidents’ birthdays, Black History Month, Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year, the Superbowl, and Leap Day, there are plenty of happenings coming up this month! 

 We’d like to tell you about more!

 Bill Holbrook (“On the Fastrack”) wants you to look out for this Sunday’s (February 7) “On the Fastrack” strip because it showcases some readers’ ideas for Dethany’s tattoos!

Patrick McDonnell (“Mutts”) was featured in Tuesday’s “NY Daily News” for his new weeklong “Mutts” Shelter Stories series that began on Monday!  It’s the first time in the 20+ years that he has been creating these wonderful series that he based the “characters” on real-life shelter animals that he met on a recent visit to the Animal Care Centers of New York City!  He was filmed there for an episode of “Shelter Me”, a series that will air nationally on PBS in May!
