Scott Stantis to pay tribute to Bob Thaves in upcoming Prickly City

The September 10th Prickly City by Scott Stantis will include a tribute to Bob Thaves, the creator of Frank & Earnest.

“I had assisted Bob on his strip ‘King Baloo’ many years ago.” Stantis told E&P. “He was a good one to learn from.”

Stantis added that he thinks Thaves — who began “Frank & Ernest” in 1972 — helped “pave the way” for comics such as “The Far Side,” “Mother Goose and Grimm,” and “Non Sequitur.” In the Sept. 10 “Prickly City,” a character calls Thaves “one of the great cartoonists.”
