Snuffy An’ Other Comic Strips Durin’ WWII

Inking a panel from this year’s Veterans Day Barney Google And Snuffy Smith comic strip.  Since Snuffy was fictionally in the United States Army, I try to create a Veterans Day-themed comic strip each year.

Ironically, a few weeks ago (around the time I was working on my Snuffy Smith comic strip for this coming Veterans Day, above) I was contacted by one of my editors at King Features, Jennifer Beck.  She said a friend of hers was writing an article for TESTED about comics during World War II and they would like some information from me since Snuffy Smith was in the military.  I was very honored and happy to help.

Eighty Is Great-y!

Snuffy 80 Color

I’d like to thank the nice folks over at Comics Kingdom for the truly bodacious post about Snuffy Smith celebrating 80 years since his first appearance in the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip!  To read the entire article, an interview with me and see the strip that marked Snuffy’s first appearance 80 years ago, visit  Comics Kingdom!
