Frank McLaughlin to Teach Cartooning in Connecticut
ComicMix’s Frank McLaughlin is profiled in today’s Connecticut Post, talking about his career and new role as professor of cartooning at the Sterling House Community Center.
In discussing his long career, McLaughlin noted the change of emphasis from newspparer comic strips to comic books to the Internet. "Comics and newspaper comic strips have been on the decline for years now," McLaughlin said. "The days of light-hearted comic strips are over. Now, the movies have made characters like Batman very dark and serious."
That allowed him a chance to plug White Viper, which ran here in 2008 and can still be read in case you missed out. The serial was written by his daughter, Erin Holroyd, and pencilled by McLaughlin’s long-time art partner Dick Giordano.
