Crock cartoonists interviewed

The Free Lance-Star has a good story about “Crock” cartoonists Don Wilder and Bill Rechin. The article gives a good background on Wilder and Rechin, and the feature that they bought from Brant Parker.

But Grace said political correctness has made it much harder to be funny lately.

“Crock” is a strip about the military written by white men in an era when many newspaper editors are looking for material about families and children done by women and minorities.

Grace said doing a comic strip today can be difficult because women readers want women characters, but don’t want those female characters to be the butt of jokes.
