Meet the Author

Phil Dunlap, a native of Brookline, Massachusetts, has lived in Los Angeles for the past three years working in advertising. He escapes the daily drudgery by writing and drawing his new comic strip, "Ink Pen." The strip is a humorous look at an employment agency for various superheroes, cuddly critters and cartoon clich├ęs.

Before moving to Los Angeles, Dunlap lived in Brooklyn and temped at a number of ad agencies in New York. His time there helped him to flavor the characters and storylines of "Ink Pen." Dunlap developed a healthy sense of humor about the humiliation of temping and the flimflam portion of the advertising industry. Dunlap spent two years doing freelance storyboard work for such clients as Saturday Night Live, MTV, U2, Jay-Z, Transformers and Burger King. His cartoons have been published in alternative weeklies in San Francisco, Arizona and New York.

Dunlap attended Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts and studied at The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts through a joint program. He has been interested in cartooning since drawing for his high school paper.

    Worst way to read this book

    Love Ink Pen the comic; hate Ink Pen the Nook version. There is no way to adjust the image size, so all the comics are printed tiny - must squint to read the dialogue baloons. Buy this book in hard copy only!

    Laugh Out Loud Funny!

    I read a great many comic strip compilations. It's not often that one makes me laugh out loud. INK PEN did this for me. It's funny without being unintelligent or obscene, manages to poke fun at any number of animation and comic book genres without falling into unimaginative parody, and is just plain the funniest new comic strip I've seen in years! I sincerely hope there will be future book volumes to enjoy!
