Mother’s Day 2018

In honor of Mother’s Day, here’s a couple cameos done by my Mom
that have appeared in the funny papers…

This next strip is from June 1, 1997,
when I was writing and drawing Flash Gordon.

My Mom passed away just last year, but I’m very happy that
I had the opportunity to honor her in this small way with these strips.
She was my biggest supporter as far as this weird career path I took.

Ending with a glamour pic of her.

This is my Mom on her honeymoon on a cruise ship from Bermuda bound for New York where she and my Dad would see Yul Brynner in “The King and I” on Broadway. What’s classic about this picture is how much boats made her seasick.

Love you and miss you, Mom. You were one of a kind!
