A Bodacious Snuffy Smith Fan!

We have family friends, Brett and Michelle Horton, who live in Rome, GA.  A few weeks ago they clipped and mailed me the front page story from their local newspaper, the Rome News-Tribune (which is a Snuffy Smith comic strip subscriber).  The story was titled “Fan Identifies With Snuffy” and it was about a local woman named Sue Davis who has clipped and collected hundreds of her favorite Snuffy Smith comic strips and placed them in a binder for over 50 years!  The first entry in her binder is a Snuffy Smith comic strip her future father-in-law gave her in 1964 about babies. He was hinting that he wanted lots of grandchildren one day!  From that point on, Sue began collecting and creating her own Snuffy Smith book collection!  Wow!  You can read the full story here.

Snuffy an’ Dr. Seuss!

Hop On Pop has always been a favorite!

I have always been a big fan of Dr. Seuss! I remember reading his books as a small child and having them read to me, as well.  I have especially fond memories of reading his books to our two daughters when they were young. They would often request that I read his book, The Lorax, because I would do a funny gravelly voice for the Lorax! In honor of Dr. Seuss on his 113th birthday today, March 2, 2017, I thought I’d share a couple of Snuffy Smith comic strips that I have done over the years that mention Dr. Seuss. I hope you enjoy them!

Snuffy and Popeye!!

Snuffy Smith and Popeye?! Well, okay, not exactly…but sort of…  

You see, our daughter Sarah, a senior graphic design major at James Madison University created the variant cover art for the Popeye Classic Comics #55 comic book!  Sarah has been a Popeye fan ever since she was a small child.  Congratulations to Sarah and many thanks to Craig Yoe at Yoe Comics and IDW for selecting her wonderful illustration for the cover!
