Well, it’s no mystery that I love wise-ass little children, Especially if they are dumb and funny. I was a bad student with poor reading and studying skills. During one vocabulary test I didn’t know the definition of any of the words. So, I just wrote funny definitions. I made it all up. I figured the teacher just had to pass me for being funny and creative. No dice. I got and F. But the teacher did write “very funny” on top of my paper. No studying and being funny finally paid off when I became a cartoonist. So, my advice is follow your heart and fuck school!
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).
