Check out John Rose’s new Barney Google and Snuffy Smith book

This week’s sponsor of The Daily Cartoonist is John Rose, the cartoonist behind Barney Google and Snuffy Smith. Barney Google and Snuffy Smith was one of the strips that ran in my hometown paper growing up. I have fond memories of laying down on the floor in front of the fireplace reading all of the comics in the newspaper – Snuffy Smith being one of them. John has published a collection of his favorite strips from 2004 through 2013. The book is entitled The Bodacious Best Of Snuffy Smith: A Barney Google and Snuffy Smith Collection by John Rose and runs about 136 pages. John was kind enough to send me a copy which I completely enjoyed reading. I haven’t kept up with the gang since I was a kid, but I recognized them all instantly like good friends.
