Puddles Begins ‘Search for Santa’
Client newspapers of Newspaper Enterprise Association will be treated to a special 16-strip, The Search for Santa. According to Daily Cartoonist, the strip is effectively a spin-off from Luann by Greg Evans.
NEA has been producing annual Christmas strips for their papers since 1937 and this year’s is a reprise to one Evans created previously. Told from the point of view of Puddles, Luann’s dog, it triers to resolve the eternal question of why St. Nick does bring gifts to dogs.
“The nagging question leads Puddles on a long journey, during which he finally finds Santa – and the spirit of the season,” Evans said.
Papers will carry the strip from December 8 through Christmas Day.
