Post-Gazette Picks Up Steve Kelley’s ‘Dustin’


After hiring Steve Kelley as its editorial cartoonist a couple weeks ago, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has decided to increase Steve’s P-G income by carrying his syndicated comic strip Dustin.



Dustin, syndicated by King Features Syndicate, is a joint effort by Steve Kelley and Jeff Parker.

Mr. Kelley, who has performed as a stand-up comedian on stage and on television, said he approaches writing “Dustin” as a sitcom. Throughout the day, he jots down observations on his cell phone and has assembled a small staff of contributors who pitch jokes on a freelance basis.

After writing “Dustin” as a theatrical script with stage directions, he emails it to Mr. Parker, who is based in Tallahassee, Fla. Dustin and his world are then put to paper.

“Jeff is just a miracle worker; he can do anything artistically,” Mr. Kelley said.


The announcement and the strip were published in today’s Post-Gazette.

No word on what, if anything, was dropped to make space for the newcomer.

  1. Oh, of course, of course, we loved your comic before but now that you work for us we like it enough to buy it. But know that when you disagree with us, the comic goes too.

  2. There’s a team that writes this? Good lord. Did they hire the staff from the George Lopez show?
