Robert Arial’s “Lowcountry” Comic Strip Debuts

The Charleston City Paper is introducing its readers to a new comic strip. Longtime South Carolina editorial cartoonist Robert Ariail will now contribute a comic strip to the alternative weekly.

Nationally syndicated cartoonist Robert Ariail will begin appear in the City Paper this week with a new cartoon series he’s calling, “Lowcountry.”

Ariail, who lives in Camden, was the editorial cartoonist for The State newspaper from 1984 until 2009, and was twice named a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1995 and 2000.

His new cartoon series will focus on coastal issues, a topic he said he’s innately familiar with.
