Profiled: Mike Lester and Mike Du Jour

Mike Lester’s comic Mike Du Jour will start running in the Florida Times-Union in March – which is also his home paper. They gave him a front page story on their features page.

The humor in ?Mike Du Jour? is observational rather than topical, Lester said, although topical events ? such as the Winter Olympics ? may inspire a series of drawings now and then. (He develops a weekly theme for his daily strips. ?It amounts to six jokes on ? I know I can do that,? he said.)

Basically, ?It?s just kind of a smart-aleck cartoon,? he said. ?Humor is still what it always was. Funny is funny.?
