Mell Lazarus 1927-2016

Today we lost Mell Lazarus, not only a LEGEND in cartooning but a contributor to Team Cul de Sac.

Mell was such an icon in cartooning that I was always nervous to look at him. It was like looking into the Sun. He was just a star and everyone orbited around him. A true sweetheart.
Mell called me back in 2011 and said that he had lunch with Cathy Guisewite and she had told him about TCDS. He wanted to contribute and I was thrilled.

 Thank you and much love Mell,

Chris, Richard, Mike and the whole TCDS gang.
