We’re excited now to offer Joe Wos’s MazeToons on Comics Kingdom! Link in bio!
Part cartoon, part puzzle, and totally fun, MazeToons features mazes with cartoon illustrations that are integrated as part of a solvable maze. Each maze is a work of art from start to finish, with many featuring holidays and celebrities, and whimsical new worlds to explore.

Joe Wos has been a professional cartoonist since the age of 14. Over the past 30 years, his career path has taken as many twists and turns as one of his mazes, as he finds new and innovative ways to pursue his passion for the cartoon arts.

Some highlights include spending 25 years touring nationwide as a performer, illustrating stories live as he told them; founding and running a cartoon art museum in Pittsburgh; illustrating symphony performances live with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; and exhibiting his art in museums worldwide. Joe has also been the visiting resident cartoonist of the Charles M. Schulz Museum for the past 20 years.

With MazeToons — a unique hybrid illustration that is part cartoon and part puzzle — Joe has fulfilled a lifelong dream to appear in the funny pages.

Joe has been drawing mazes since seven and is regarded as a master maze maker. In 2012, he created the world’s largest hand-drawn maze. Measuring 140 square feet, it features more than 100 illustrations. The maze garnered international attention with articles in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and media coverage throughout Europe. One of his mural-sized mazes is permanently displayed at StarKist’s international headquarters.

Joe is the multi-Emmy Award-winning host of Cartoon Academy on PBS.

Joe is the winner of the 2020 Divisional Reuben Award for the Variety Category, as presented by the National Cartoonists Society.

With great delight, he has heard every variation of the phrase “A-maze-ing.”
