News Around the Kingdom: A CAR WRAP, A COMICS CROSSOVER AND A CHAPLAIN

by The King

Hello, Royal Readers,

This week, we thought you’d get a real kick out of a special project we worked on with one of the King Features newspaper clients. The Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Ia., came to us with a very cool idea: they wanted to wrap one of their circulation department vehicles with the COMICS!

Blondie, Dennis the Menace and The Family Circus joined other comics from their lineup blazoned on the vehicle. This week, they completed the project. Check out the awesome photos we received of both sides of the car!
