Creators Syndicate will launch a new comic by Brett Koth entitled Diamond Lil on March 1. In an interview with Scott Nickel, Brett described the feature as “Lillian Bilious is a blue-haired 75-year-old widow who has lived in the same house in the same small town all her life (Turkey Knuckle, Indiana). She enjoys saying exactly what’s on her mind, because let’s face it, who’s going to tell an old lady to shut up? She’s a mash-up of many older ladies I’ve known in my life. I had a great aunt Lillian, who was a character, and I’ve always loved that name. The ‘Diamond’ in the title refers to her age, and the fact that she’s the hardest substance known to man.”
Brett has been an artist with Jim Davis’ PAWS inc. for the last 20 years. You can learn about his career in the interview with Scott. Diamond Lil samples are over on Creators site and Brett has a blog you can follow.
