It’s rare enough for Jerry and I to find ourselves in the same room together, but extraordinary to have Rick Kirkman, Jerry’s partner on Baby Blues, join us. (BTW Rick is up for the Reuben Award at next week’s National Cartoonists Society convention — fingers crossed.) But last week we all met in San Luis Obispo, California and talked with a reporter over lunch about partnering on comic strips.
The Mayors Against Illegal Guns asked a bunch of cartoonists to lend our characters in support of the legislation that our slinky-spined representatives ultimately defeated in Congress. The video, released just today, may at least help keep the candle burning for the next push in the ongoing effort. Someday sanity will prevail. Demand Action.
