Millions of Americans know and love Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Blondie and Dagwood, Doonesbury, Li'l Abner, Garfield, Cathy, Beetle Bailey and others in the comic strips. Thanks to the cartoonists -- the people who have brought and still bring these and other characters to life day after day in the newspapers -- the characters have become an entertaining and important part of American culture. Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Chic Young (Blondie), Gary Trudeau (Doonesbury), Al Capp (Li'l Abner), Jim Davis (Garfield), Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Rudolph Dirks (The Katzenjammer Kids), Alex Raymond (Rip Kirby), Chester Gould (Dick Tracy), Frank King (Gasoline Alley), and other cartoonists whose comic strips appeared in American newspapers between 1945 to 1980 are featured in this work. The author provides biographies of the cartoonists, with special attention to their careers and characters.
