A Cartoony Christmas For Me!

You can see that, as a professional cartoonist, a lot of the Christmas gifts I ask for and receive are comic and cartoon related. And I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love it! Above are some of the wonderful comic strip collections and books I was lucky enough to get this year. With three out of the four being King Features strips, (Zits, Hagar and Prince Valiant) I really had a King Features Comics Christmas!  In addition to these items, I also received several animated films on DVD: Despicable Me 3, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Cars 3. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
