Charlton Spotlight #9 Cover, featuring a new original Snuffy Smith comic book story by me!

Charlton Spotlight #9 Cover, featuring an all-new, original Snuffy Smith comic book story that I wrote and illustrated  This is the first “Snuffy Smith” comic book story in 45 years!

Great balls o’ fire! I’ve been holding this under wraps for awhile and now I am so happy to finally announce the first brand-new “Snuffy Smith” comic book story in 45 years! Longtime fans of the strip may remember that many years ago, Snuffy also appeared in comic book form with a few different comic book publishers.  The last time our pals from Hootin’ Holler were in an American comic book was in the 1970’s when Snuffy had his own comic book with Charlton Comics.  This ran for for many issues.  I remember reading some of these as a child and thoroughly enjoying every page.

Earlier this summer, in one of my Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strips I drew Lukey giving Elviney a goat for her birthday.  As I have said on this blog before, in addition to being a big King Features fan, I’m also a big Disney fan.  After I drew this goat, it occurred to me that he looked like he could be Mushu’s cousin!
