Uncomfortable encounters with butcher shop customers ensue and eventually Ham Shears meets two girls from the neighborhood, the plucky Jill and no-nonsense Ingrid. They end up befriending Ham Shears and get wrapped up in the day-to-day weirdness that comes from knowing an anthropomorphic pig.

If by some strange happenstance you have never before seen a Kliban cat drawing, you will instantly recognize that each and every one of them captures the essence of…. cat. A well-established illustrator and cartoonist (Playboy, The New Yorker, Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head, et al) B. Kliban used to devote off-moments in his studio to drawing his felines Nitty, Norton, Burton Rustle and Noko Marie the Snake. An editor friend saw this work and convinced Kliban to let her take it publishers, and in 1975 Workman published CAT, a huge bestseller which inspired an outbreak of cat love that has not abated to this day. That groundbreaking book was followed by more books, and more drawings, which manifested on calendars, cards, mugs, ceramics, clothing – almost 9,000 unique items to date. And the book that started it all is still in print. Cat people of the world, rejoice -- and savor the twice-a-week pleasure of KLIBAN’S CATS. Comic is updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

But the picture was taken some time ago, the poster now faded and curled from sun and rain. The Little Dog is a long way from the home he longs for. But truth be told, for Little Dog, the adventure of the open road is addictive – fraught with exploits both humorous and heroic, filled with characters both good and bad (but always interesting), and imbued with life lessons.

It contains parables and morality plays, palatably packaged in humorous comic strip form.

Sheldon is a weird, wonderful little strip...with geeky characters, all-ages storylines, and lots of pop-culture nerdiness. Twice nominated for "Best Humor" in the Eisner Awards, Sheldon centers on a wonderfully odd little family: A boy, his duck, and the grandfather that raises them both. But the strip is also famous for venturing away from the main cast and into stand-alone comics and storyline, too. So there’s occasional delightful weirdness. Visit the official website here!
