Benita Epstein is the latest cartoonist to join the Six Chix comic strip, replacing Kathryn LeMieux, who is leaving the feature to pursue other interests. Benita’s first strip was in yesterday’s paper and future daily work will be featured on Fridays (Sundays are rotated amongst the six women).
“Kathryn LeMieux’s contribution to Six Chix over the years has been wonderful. As she moves on, we are delighted to welcome Benita Epstein to the team,” said Brendan Burford, King Features Syndicate comics editor. “Benita’s cartoons fit beautifully with the Six Chix feature – her work reflects a style and sensibility all her own, yet wonderfully compliments the voices of the other five Chix. We’re so pleased Benita is a part of Six Chix.”
Six Chix is distributed to more than 60 newspapers, including the Arizona Republic, Detroit News, Houston Chronicle, San Diego Union-Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
