About the Creators
Canadian cartoonists David Waisglass and Gordon Coulthart signed with Universal Press Syndicate in 1990 after self-sydnicating their comic for six months to 50 newspapers. Licenses with Hallmark, Clement, Corel as well as books by Andrews-McMeel Publishing, soon followed. David, who owned an employee communications publishing company, was searching his network for someone to illustrate a client project. He was introduced to Gordon, who was directing backgrounds for an animation company and was gaining popularity at work for his subversive wall graffiti. The two instantly hit it off writing and drawing goofy comic gags.
