I’ve been a professional cartoonist for many years now and I still get a kick out of visiting a city for the first time and seeing my comic strip in their local newspaper. It always makes me smile! Whenever we travel, my wife will tell you that I stop and pick up newspapers along the way and check out their comics section looking for Snuffy. I know that wherever I go I can always read Snuffy online, but there’s still something special to me about seeing my comic strip in the newspaper–and there always will be. So, needless to say, just recently on quick trip to the Dallas, TX area for the first time, I bought a newspaper to read in the airport while waiting for my flight. I was so happy to open the Sunday Comics section of the Fort Worth Star Telegram and see my ol’ pal Snuffy looking back at me! They say everything’s bigger in Texas and when I saw Snuffy in their comics section, my smile sure was! Thank you, Fort Worth Star Telegram!
