(Cartoonist’s note: I’m continuing with posts from 10 years ago. When choosing old material, I try to find something worthwhile. I hope you will agree this is better than mundane posts about the hot, sticky, rainy weather, because that’s all I got right now.)
Today, I’m beginning a two-week series from 1986 that I know most of you have never seen. It was the first series of any length or complexity that I’d ever drawn, and it was the first time the strip departed from day-to-day reality. I know my editors in New York were nervous, but they let me run with it, as they usually do.
The entire series is a take on the movie “Peggy Sue Got Married,” which was running in theatres at the time. That, by the way, was another excellent movie. I hope you enjoy this as much as I think you will.
