Example text

33 years ago, Margaret Jane Pauley volunteered to be my girlfriend, and three years later, my wife, even though she knew about the deadline thing, which is famously murder on families. Without her unconditional support, I cannot imagine how this career could have been possible. I love her madly. Also 33 years ago, Lee Salem, who joined UPS’s skeletal staff in 1974, took over as my editor. In addition to saving me from myself, he also shielded me from countless irate publishers, taking hit after hit from clients who accused him, ironically, of not editing the strip.

I didn’t personally know anyone who had been wounded in battle. That changed quickly. D. being carried from the battlefield, I was contacted by the Department of Defense with an offer of assistance. Their reasoning, I think, was that my wounded-warrior story might have more value if I actually got it right.

Zonker? Mark? Mike? Which powerhouse of personal togetherness is the baseline here? While some of the earliest characters may indeed have begun their runs as stereotypes, it’s the accumulated peculiarities and contradictions that give them breath—and longevity.
