Here I return to the one-panel gag cartoon format. Because I don’t have my own shorthand gag cartoon style I’m aping the style of British cartoonist Pugh. I’m actually looking at his gag cartoons and taking his situations and making them my own as a kind of exercise. How can I make it Kaz funny? Well, it usually ends up being gags about sex and death. There’s no escaper from sex and death.
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).
