“Richard’s one of the greatest cartoonists of his era, and before long, he’ll be on the short list of the all-time greats. Shaenon and I are huge fans of Cul de Sac, and I think we’re even bigger fans of Richard himself. He’s even funnier and more charming in person than he is on paper, if you can believe that. I contributed to Team Cul de Sac mostly for selfish reasons, in that I’d like to see Richard cartooning for another hundred years.”
Shaenon K. Garrity is an award-winning cartoonist and scriptwriter best known for the online comics Narbonic and Skin Horse. She works as a manga editor for Viz Media and teaches at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Her writing on comics appears in The Comics Journal and Comixology.com.
“Cul de Sac won me over from the first strip, and I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to draw the characters. In particular, I wanted to delve into the mystery of Petey’s possibly imaginary friend/supervillain Ernesto Lacuna. Thanks, Richard, for giving Andrew and me that chance!”
