Arlo and Janis creator Jimmy Johnson has a new book collection out (Beaucoup Arlo & Janis). His ex-wife Rheta Grimsley Johnson writes glowingly about the strip and her former husband.
If my youthful insecurities and jealousies during our life together helped inspire a single idea, I’m proud to have been of service. Jimmy, like most good writers, gleans material from whomever and whatever he can. So, yes, I see myself in a few of the earliest strips.
