See Snuffy On Yore Summer Vacation!

 

My nephew, Christian, and niece, Sydney, pose with Snuffy Smith’s dog, Ol’ Bullet at the Comic Strip Dog Fountain.  This fountain is located in the Toon Lagoon section of Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park.  It features statues of many famous comic strip dogs!

The state of Florida is one of the most popular summer vacation destinations! If you happen to be visiting Orlando, Florida on your vacation this year, stop by Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park and say “howdy” to Snuffy Smith and family! They are featured, along with many of your other favorite comic strip characters, in the Toon Lagoon section of the theme park.  You can find them in The Comic Strip Cafe, the Comic Strip Dog Fountain and on a large display panel in the center of the Toon Lagoon area.  My brother, Mike and his wife, Amy recently took their children on a family vacation to Universal and sent me these cute photos!

The new Popeye Collection by Bobby London, E-Man by Nicholas Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.

The new Popeye Volume One collection by Bobby London, E-Man: The Early Years by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.  All three of these books are really terrific!

I recently took a summer vacation to the beach with my family and it rained most of the time. Good thing I brought along some good books to read! What does this cartoonist read on vacation? Other cartoonists’ books collections! I read these three collections shown above and when I returned home I had the new Nancy book collection by Guy Gilchrist waiting for me in the mail, so now I’ve started that one, as well!
