The Better Half

The Better Half is syndicated to print and online newspapers by King Features Syndicate. I’ve been writing and drawing this cartoon since 1982. It was originated by cartoonist Bob Barnes in 1957, the year I was born. After Barnes passed away, the panel was drawn by another cartoonist, and then the syndicate asked me to take over. With two small children at home to take care of, I eagerly accepted the position to bring a bit of financial stability to my family. Over the years, I have gradually evolved “The Better Half” into a panel that is uniquely my own, not an imitation of someone else’s art or ideas. Some “Better Half” cartoons are based on my own marriage…and yours!

If “The Better Half” doesn’t appear in your local newspaper, you can read it online every day @ www.dailyink.com

Here are a few samples…
