Brooke McEldowney, creator of Pibgorn and 9 Chickweed Lane is recovering from having his gallbladder removed. Notes he: “The surgery, I’m afraid, wasn’t really all that interesting. I slept through the most dramatic part. All I retain is a conviction that I dueled several musketeers bearing very antiseptic épées â?? and I have the wounds to prove it.”

Jack’s son, Cullen, used to write the feature. He writes for the Atlantic Monthly. ‘m not sure if he writes the feature anymore.

I’m quite sure Mr. Murphy does not write or draw “Valiant” anymore; just ask Mark Schultz and Gary Gianni.
