Overview

Doesn't get better than this. . . . The world of the McCoy brothers mirrors my own talking dogs at an AA meeting." —Whoopi Goldberg

* Brothers Glenn and Gary McCoy, creators of The Flying McCoys, syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, deliver their high-wire act onto the printed page by rotating duties daily.

These brothers are the real McCoy. Glenn and Gary take turns writing and drawing their own panels each day. Such a balancing of efforts ensures a fresh approach to each and every McCoy cartoon panel.

* The brothers' delightfully absurd take on superheroes, office humor, huggable animals, and twisted relationships is the stuff of the New Yorker, Conan O'Brien, and Mad magazine combined.

* Both Glenn and Gary have been honored for their cartooning talents by the National Cartoonists Society.

Meet the Author

Gary McCoy was born in 1962 and developed a lifelong love of cartooning alongside his younger brother, Glenn.

For 14 years, Gary worked as the editorial cartoonist for the Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis. His work on Illinois state-issues was distributed by Copley News Service, and has been reprinted in The Washington Post, as well as some textbooks. His work has also appeared in "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year" (Pelican Publishing Co.).

Gary is the main cartoonist for Vivid, an English language magazine dealing with art, culture, lifestyle and politics, published in Bucharest, Romania. He also freelances as a cartoonist and humor illustrator.

Gary's work as a graphic artist and freelance cartoonist has generated an impressive client list including companies such as Anheuser-Busch, Gibson Greetings, Disney's ABC.com, NobleWorks, Inc., Marcel Schurman Design, and Playboy magazine.

His work for these clients garnered him three consecutive nominations from the National Cartoonists Society—two as best gag cartoonist of the year, and one as best
greeting-card cartoonist. Gary also dabbled in stand-up comedy, winning HBO's Stand-Up Stand-Off contest for the St. Louis area in mid-90s.

"The Flying McCoys" is the realization of his lifelong dream to collaborate with his brother, Glenn, on a comic. Gary resides in Belleville, Ill.—just across the Mississippi River from his hometown of St. Louis.

Glenn McCoy has long been recognized by his peers as a superior cartoonist. The National Cartoonists Society (NCS) has twice named Glenn the Magazine Cartoonist of the Year, as well as Editorial Cartoonist of the Year and Greeting-Card Cartoonist of the Year.

Glenn was the first cartoonist to be victorious in three (NCS) categories. His editorial cartoons have been reprinted in The New York Times, USA Today and Newsweek, and appear frequently on CNN. They also have been collected in two books, "Pot Shots" and "Pot Shots 2," both dealing with Bill Clinton's years in office.

Glenn was born in St. Louis and began drawing at age 4 under the tutelage of both his grandfather and his older brother, Gary. Weaned on "Peanuts" paperbacks, he pursued his interest in cartooning by drawing for his grade school, high school and college newspapers. He graduated in 1988 from Southern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in fine arts and graphic design.

After receiving his degree, Glenn landed a job as editorial cartoonist for the Belleville (Ill.) News-Democrat in his current hometown of Belleville. In 1990, he won a national talent search called "Create the Comics of the '90s." Soon after, he began doing gag cartoons for some of the top magazines around the country. In 1993, his comic strip, "The Duplex," was launched by Universal Press Syndicate, and in 1999 Universal began syndicating his editorial cartoons. Two book collections of "The Duplex" cartoons have been published by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
