I drew this comic strip a few weeks after my mother’s funeral. I was feeling guilty about being such a slob while she was alive. And living on the west coast while she’s buried on the east coast means I’ll hardly ever visit her grave site. Add the Karloff/Lugosi 1934 Black Cat movie into the mix and I’ve got a comic strip.
Order “The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood” the omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
