Snuffy Smith And Prince Valiant Together!

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Dr. Stan Galloway, Thomas Yeates and I really had fun speaking to the crowd at Cole Hall on the campus of Bridgewater College.

On Thursday, February 8th, I had the honor of lecturing along with fellow King Features cartoonist, the incredible Thomas Yeates of Prince Valiant, at Bridgewater College as part of their “Drawing Comics For A Living” presentation. I would like to thank Dr. Stan Galloway, Professor Of English and Director Of Convocations, for inviting both Thomas and I to speak to the enthusiastic audience in attendance. I would also like to thank audience members Terry Tucker and her son Billy for taking many of these photos from the evening:
