About the Author

As a student at Boston College, Father Justin 'Fred' McCarthy (1918 - 2009) felt the call of religious service. He heard and acted on that call by transferring to St. Bonaventure College in Buffalo. It was there that his cartooning hobby flowered and drew the attention of his peers - which resulted in the appearance of a nameless little monk in college flyers and posters. In 1942, he dubbed this cheery, pint-sized creation, "Brother Juniper."

McCarthy was a member of the Secular Franciscan Order for seventy-one years. He served as art director of the national Franciscan magazine, "Friar."" He also taught classes about the art of comics and humor at numerous universities and colleges.

In 1959 the "Brother Juniper" series won "The Brotherhood of the Year" award from the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

Thought we would never see this little guy again but, after sixty years, here he is...and on the NOOK! The image quality on these cartoons is phenomenal. If you are skeptical about reading a cartoon as an eBook you need to pick this up and check out just how crisp the images are. There is also a bunch of extra content - even historical info on the real Saint Juniper. There probably aren't a whole lot of people left who were reading these cartoons in the newspapers in 1960 but Brother Juniper is an excellent series that deserves to at least be available to cartoon fans. This is the third book in the series and it looks like all seven are going to wind up re-released for print AND for eBooks. Woot!
